The RF-260GC Guide Cat

This 26′ Guide Cat kit is unique.

Guides know what is needed – lots of deck space, ample storage, live wells everywhere, shallow draft, and the ability to run offshore without a boat change when desired by clients.

The unique and proprietary race inspired hull is very stable due to its prominent cutting bow, wide stance, and stepped / vented catamaran hull. The 1/2″ thick glassed composite core hull makes a stout boat with a quiet ride. The large pilot house and seating pillion provide copious shade, comfort, and storage.

Whether your are heading down the Intercoastal, out to the flats, making a run to the rigs to dive, or out island hopping, the Guide Cat will get you there with roomy comfort and safety.
