Carolina Cat 23CC (2016-)

2 x 115-hp Yamaha four-stroke

Brief Summary

Since our review, Carolina Cats have been rebranded as World Cats, which includes increasing the hull warranty from seven to 10 years. Going forward, these 23' boats will carry the World Cat name and model numbers 23 will be changed to 230.

When the design team at Carolina Cat decided to build a crossover fishing boat for flats and offshore they didn't kid around. The Carolina Cat 23CC has the draft of a flats boat, the roominess of a center console, the legs for long distance, and the rough comfort of a deep-V. Seriously? Can all this really come together in one boat? We asked the same question when we set out to test this latest model from Carolina Cat and the answer is a resounding… Yes!
