World Cat 230DC (2016-)

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.

World Cat has had quite a great success run with their 230CC but they quickly realized that the hull has so much available interior space that it lends itself well to creating a family friendly dual console. This 230DC has a LOA of 22'7" (6.88 m) and the standard 8'6" (2.59 m) beam, but she easily has the cockpit space of a 25’to 26’ foot (7.6 m to 7.9 m) boat. She also has a capacity for 10 persons and even a full-size head. And if your travels take you into choppy water, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better performing boat. Now let's drill down a little further into the details to see what else she's got.
