Twin Vee boats are designed by Twin Vee Catamarans, Inc., located in Fort Pierce, Florida. Twin Vee claims its boats are some of the most fuel-efficient, stable, and affordable catamarans available now. Many boat owners agree, with particular praise for the great options for fishing offered by Twin Vee boats.

Twin Vee boasts a hull design superior to other small powerboats, allowing a comfortable and efficient ride, even in 4-5 foot chop at high speeds. Twin Vee also pioneered a hull design that allows single engine performance on models 19 feet and shorter. Most boat owners agree that a Twin Vee is easy to steer.

The boats also have a shallow draft, ranging from 7 inches on shorter boats to 14 inches on longer models, so they are capable of navigating shallow waters. Even so, most boat owners agree that the boats offer plenty of room.

The twin hull design of Twin Vee boats has several advantages. A twin hull boat rides more smoothly because it doesn’t have a large bottom surface to be slammed by the waves. Also, the twin hulls add a great deal of stability to the boat. Another advantage is that the twin hulls have less surface touching the water, which creates less drag, making the boat more fuel efficient. Finally, the twin hulls allow two engines to be farther apart, which makes the boat more easily maneuvered.

Pricing

Single engine boats range from 10’ to 22’, and twin engine boats range from 22’-36’, and their prices range from $2,495 to $129,900+. Pricing is available on the manufacturer's website.

Pros

  • The hull design reduces drag and increases fuel efficiency.
  • These boats easily slice through chop, providing a comfortable ride.
  • Twin Vee boats are stable.
  • The boats carry a lifetime hull warranty.

Cons

  • Some boat owners have complained of poor customer service.
  • Some reports have been made of manufacturing problems, including hull cracks, and leaky cabins. (Note: these reports were made while the company was under its previous owner, so they may or may not be relevant.)
