Proven New Zealand Design
Internationally recognized New Zealand based yacht designer Roger Hill designed and ocean-tested the ArrowCat 30 to meet the highest standards. The ArrowCat 30 is a proven performer.
The ArrowCat 30 is hand-built by an experienced team using the best components and materials available from the USA, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. For example, our 100% tinned wire harnesses are certified to exceed UL and USCG standards. Arrowcat uses only DNV and Lloyds certified resins and fiberglass. Our ultra-UV protected gelcoat is made by Ashland (USA) and all exterior hardware and rails are 316 grade stainless steel. Plumbing, electrical, instruments, and appliances are all easy to access and service.
The ArrowCat 30's interior has a spacious modern design with 360 degree of visibility from the salon and galley. The settee offers seating for the entire family and the seamless flow of space keeps the crew together. Air condition and heat are available to extend your boating season. A midship helm station has ample room for modern chart-plotter screens and provides a commanding view of the entire vessel. The galley comes standard with a luxurious counter top, cherry-wood finished cabinets, refrigerator, hot and cold water, a large sink, a microwave compartment, and of course, lots of locking latch drawers. ArrowCat offers you a choice of two-burner stoves including electric ceramic, alcohol/electric, LPG, and diesel (stove/cabin heat combinations). Down below, a roomy, well ventilated bathroom features a full size toilet, shower and vanity sink with hot/cold faucets -- all the comfort and privacy of home. Open the door to the forward master stateroom and there is a queen size mattress and plenty of storage, with large deck hatches and opening portholes for light and ventilation. The hatches and portholes even come with insect screens standard. Two adult-size mid-berths allow two more crew to comfortably sleep in large aft bunks. The "settee berth conversion" allows for another two over nighters to sleep in the salon, in cushioned comfort! The roomy aft aft-deck can be configured to the owner's choice of activities. The aft-deck can be open to the salon for temperate climates, or enclosed by a glass/alloy door and sliding window for cooler climates (our Patagonia bulkhead option). Or a bimini, seating, and carpet can make the aft-deck into an "all weather" entertainment space. A large swim platform invites all kinds of activities from trophy fishing to snorkeling and scuba diving. Enormous lazarette storage compartments house insulated fish boxes below (and additional storage space) to keep the aft deck free and clear, while the hot and cold transom shower and a raw water washdown make rinsing a breeze.
Each ArrowCat is built with thousands of labor hours. The meticulous hand-built foam-core composite construction can never rot and provides owners with the strongest, most durable construction money can buy. Each bulkhead and internal structure is hand fiber glassed to both the hull and deck and each join is made with the utmost attention to detail for strength. The boat will remain stiff and quiet because it is all bonded into one unit. The hull bottom is 22 layers of solid fiberglass for durability and strength. No expense is spared and every detail has been thought of, in sourcing only the best equipment and hardware -- such as the window system which is a double welded, yacht grade product from Taylor Made window systems.
Fuel Economy and Performance
This unique Roger Hill hull design offers the best of both displacement and planing hull technologies - stability and exceptional seaworthiness are melded with speed and best-in-class fuel efficiency. Combining a wide stance and sharp bow entry with ample tunnel height, the ArrowCat 30 delivers unparallel performance and efficiency from trolling to top speeds. The ArrowCat 30 is powered by twin engines, ranging from twin 150's hp to twin 250's, depending on desired performance and fuel economy. The ArrowCat is both fast and fuel efficient - enjoy burning 50 percent less fuel and going faster than boats of similar size and accommodation! Foam-core composite construction (above the waterline) and careful resin control make the ArrowCat 30 faster per horsepower than other boats of similar volume. Capable of top speeds up to 49 mph (42 knots) with 2 x 175 hp. With larger engines, the ArrowCat 30 keeps up with the fastest boats on the water.
