World Cat 235TE

Tournament bound… and other places.

It all starts with the design, and World Cat’s sea-proven catamaran hull and ride — no matter what size — is all based on the same intention: To plan, engineer and build the best-performing boats in their class with operating capabilities in a wide variety of sea conditions.

“When designing the 235TE (Tournament Edition), we wanted to take it back to our roots to a fishing-forward model showcasing the innovation and comfort of a World Cat,” says Vice President of Sales and Marketing Chad Armstrong.

The 235TE is based on the company’s successful 235CC center console model. Starting up at the bow, there are fold-away jump seats and in-deck storage. The trolling motor pre-rig is standard and there are four gunwale-mounted rod/cup holders as well as stainless grabrails. The helm offers a fiberglass T-top with a rocket launcher and aft spreader lights, a flip-bolster leaning post with rocket launchers, a tackle drawer, a 45-quart YETI cooler with seat cushion and a single Garmin GPSMAP 8612xsv 12-inch multi-touch chartplotter/sonar with 315 VHF. Thanks to two 60-gallon fuel tanks, you can stay out longer and explore farther.

On the stern are port and starboard in-sole fishboxes with overboard discharge, a 30-gallon livewell and insulated top-load boxes. Options include Yamaha 150-hp XSA2 with HelmMaster XL joystick or Mercury 150-hp XL power, a deck-mounted windlass and a GEMLUX outrigger system with 18-foot collapsible hybrid poles.

“The 235TE is stacked with standard amenities focused on family fishing,” Armstrong says. “We also raised the gunnels and added additional bow and cockpit space.”

The 23-foot World Cat 235TE is a standout in her class and deserves to be on your shortlist for a visit and sea trial.
