Cruising a World Cat to Old Woman

The weather on the Sunny Coast finally cleared today and the winds were light. Finally a chance arises to get the World Cat 250 DC presented by Ensign Ship Brokers out of Mooloolaba Marina and about for a test run.

Pushed by twin Suzuki 150’s the World Cat is quick, topping out at 35kts while the patented Vectorflo hull ensures a smooth stable ride. Easing back to 4000rpms will give you an easy 24kt comfortable cruise. Handling this boat with responsive hydraulic electric steering is child’s play!


Look out! WOT Old Woman Island  off the Mudjimba coast arrives quickly, there were a few other craft out and about taking advantage of the conditions. Given the amount of bait fish around the plan should have been to drop a line!

Currently listed for $99,000, this boat is priced to sell. Call Brendon Symons at Ensign Brokers Mooloolaba Office now on 0404 511 401 for more details or to arrange an inspection. This Sweet Ride is sure to impress!

Bye Bye Old Woman! See you next time!
