Having put nearly 10,000 boats on the water, from 24-40’, over 27 years, Twin Vee recognized that many boaters viewed the boat builder as producing a reliable, smooth riding, utilitarian fishing catamaran. Then, a few years ago, under the leadership of CEO Joseph Visconti, the development team created the 400 GFX flagship model that raised the brand’s bar, look and aspirations. The publicly traded company decided to invest in raising the standards of the rest of its 2025 model line, creating the evolution from GFX to GFX2—the second generation of Twin Vee performance.

“The hull is proven,” says Preston Yarborough, Vice President and Director of Product development at Twin Vee, “The lifting strakes, reverse chine and twin hull design, with just enough air induction between the hulls to aerate the water, give Twin Vee cats a super soft entry, no slamming and minimal sneezing. Also, we wanted to make the entire model line consistent and change the aesthetics. It was hard to make a cat with all its benefits of the best ride quality and fuel efficiency good looking, but we think we mastered that too,” he adds.

With the help of engineer Greg McLogan, who has more than 20 years of power catamaran engineering experience, the Twin Vee team started with their largest model, the 40-footer and worked downward through the 34, 28, 26 and 24’ models. They revamped everything from the waterline up, including the integration of entirely new, advanced digital control system, while maintaining the classic look of the double shear line to each Twin Vee cat. “We didn’t want to change the DNA of Twin Vee, but now, whether you can afford or want a 40’ or a 24’ boat, a Twin Vee will be consistent in design and construction—with upgraded quality and quantity of features,” notes McLogan.

The entire console was re-designed as a “Command Center” to incorporate the newest technologies, including a large 24” multifunction display, integration with a phone app and digital switching (with redundant button control), that incorporates simplified control of boat systems, including control pumps, sound system, lighting, (also underwater and navigation lights), and a line of options like FLIR thermal vision, camera, a fish finding transducer pack (down and side sonars), advanced autonomous navigation and Rhodan HD GPS Anchor+trolling motor.

The helm station is protected by a tempered glass windshield, a redesigned, lighter-weight T-top, with LED lights, supported by D-shaped aluminum supports (with a powder coat option), integrated into the console for a graceful, aerodynamic look with no pipes to avoid tripping. The helm seating is new with premium marine-grade materials and luxury sport stitch patterns, as is the bow seating, with forward facing backrests—comfortable for cruising or removable for fishing. A porcelain fresh water head macerated head is convenient for all.

For fishing, the GFX2 line is ready and replete with rod holders, recirculating live wells (up to 50-gallons on smaller models—100-gallons on the 40), increased storage in tackle centers, carbon fiber hatch lids on insulated, deck fish boxes, and larger fuel tanks for increased range. The Twin Vee GFX2 also enjoys better fuel economy, thanks to the lighter construction. Transom corner jump seats can flip up to create more cockpit space.

“When picking power for a cat, more is not always better,” says Yarborough, so Twin Vee recommends twin Mercury, Yamaha or Suzuki engines with enough horsepower to fit a customer’s fishing and cruising style. Electric or electric-hydraulic steering, depending on the power package is standard, and joystick controls are optional.

All Twin Vee molds are now created using 5-Axis CNC router technology, giving precision to what were formerly, hand-built plugs and molds. All models are infused, using precise amounts of composite material along with fiberglass in the hulls and bulkheads. The result is a monolithic hull construction, ensuring the highest strength, correct weight balance, and quality with consistency from boat to boat.

A 12-year hull warranty is offered on all 2025 GFX2 models, backing Twin Vee’s confidence in its new upgraded product line. The models will be available over the summer months of 2024 with pricing comparable to prior GFX models.

States Visconti, “We wanted to refine our products and pair them with cutting-edge enhancements to help create unforgettable experiences for our customers and their families when they’re out on the water. The less time you need to worry about your boat, the more time you can focus on the things that really matter.”
