World Cat builds center-console, dual-console and sun-deck boats, all sharing the advantages of the double hull.
Those catamaran pluses include a wider footprint to reduce rolling; reduced resistance for quicker planing and faster headway; the beam -carried forward to create a rectangular, space–efficient deck; and reduced tenderness for passengers boarding, moving about or fishing.
World Cat has become the largest maker of power catamarans in the world, recently expanding its production capabilities with the addition of a 265,000-square foot building in Greenville, NC. In combination with the production facility in Tarboro, NC, World Cat now has a total of 405,000-square feet of production space. It offers models with planing and semidisplacement hulls, all featuring the company’s VectorFlo hull design.
World Cat 400CC-X
Everything about the World Cat 400CC-X is big.
Including features such as the single-level deck, the 400CC-X boasts more than 200 square feet of deck room, thanks to spaciousness carried forward on its twin hulls and 12-foot-8-inch beam.
Its twin-tank fuel capacity, totaling 604 gallons, team up for a range of more than 600 miles—even with optional quad F300 engines.
The large helm offers three-sided tempered-glass wind and weather protection, as well as space on the panel for two huge screens.
Standard is a fiberglass T-top. The console head compartment has a full fiberglass liner, a portlight, a vanity with Corian countertop, and an electric marine head. Insulated fish boxes within bow and aft decks total 269 gallons.
Power is big on the 400CC-X too: standard twin Yamaha XF425s and integrated electric steering—or quad F300s, if you please.
Highly customizable, options include air conditioning, dual Seakeeper gyrostabilizers, a lithium-ion-battery upgrade, additional fuel tanks, a summer kitchen, additional storage and fish boxes, and several seating-upgrade packages.
The 400CC-X is our largest catamaran built to date and the second 40-foot model of a new series in our Custom Yacht Division.

I love the expansive deck space on a multihull boat, and this nearly 40-footer delivers 200 square feet of fishable room. Now, add in a super-stable ride—even in heavy seas—and you have a formula for rain-or-shine offshore fishing. Available options provide cavernous livewells and oversize fish boxes. – Chris Woodward, Executive Editor, Fishing Group
