After 4 years of development, Tideline Boats has launched its 235 Hybrid twin-engine power catamaran, big sister to the single-engine Tideline 19. The company’s overall aim is to produce sweet-riding, well-built power cats that are also classically pretty to look at and elegantly finished. The 235 achieves that end nicely.
The boat’s rugged, all-composite hull offers a 14” draft and trolling-motor compatibility for sneaking around in shallow water, yet can also handle rough offshore seas. The twin 60-gallon fuel tanks offer plenty of range for a full day of fishing or family fun, and there is ample dry-storage in the bow and console. Wiring is first-rate and easy to access.
Fishing features include a 225-quart insulated fishbox; custom leaning post with 30-gallon live well, rocket launcher and tackle drawers; 8 gunwale-mounted rod holders; 4 under-gunwale rod holders and a wide-open, snag-free bow casting deck.
