Whether applied to its original (and refreshed) 36 Open Fisherman, or its recently launched 35 Catamaran, Invincible proclaims itself maker of “the fastest, driest and best-riding open fishermen ever built.”
That’s big, when 73 percent of offshore center-console survey respondents call brand reputation key to the value of their boat, and 80 percent peg a soft, solid rough-water ride as central to performance.
Invincible’s patented monohull, designed by naval architect Michael Peters, boasts one of the lowest drag coefficients of any. Its air-fed tunnel attains higher speeds with lower power, and a more stable ride—while maintaining maneuverability—for comfortable, dry adventures even in rough seas.
Some of the monohull’s best features are echoed in Invincible catamarans, with the additional stability of the patent-pending hybrid semi-asymmetric multihull design of Morrelli & Melvin. Like a monohull, these cats heel into turns, avoiding the pronounced “lean-out” roll and instability Invincible sees in competitors.
In either format, central to the fishing experience is Invincible’s single-level deck, and 360-degree walk-around fishability.
Features include generous underdeck storage and angled leaning-post housing coolers. A sturdy, optional hardtop is ready to receive outriggers, a spotlight and an infrared imaging camera. Under it, a main helm is arranged to provide confident control under rough conditions and accommodate large electronics. In the sponsons are insulated boxes designed specifically to fit wahoo and kingfish without bending their tails.
Double-livewell storage is plenty for the 95 percent of offshore CC anglers who head off with a couple dozen baits or fewer. (Only 4 percent say they need more than two livewells, and a full two-thirds would be happy with just one.)
Seating options include a new console coffin-box seat available across the Invincible catalog.
