Invincible builds hard-core sportfishing boats. Period. Its lineup comprises nine center consoles: four monohulls and six power catamarans including a pilothouse. During its 15 years in business, the Florida-based builder has garnered a loyal following with its advanced hull designs and no-nonsense fishing features.
When Invincible decided to develop a line of power cats, it tapped the expertise of veteran multihull designers Morelli and Melvin. The result was an semi-asymmetric hull — a patented running surface that’s faster, more fuel efficient and offers better handling characteristics than other power cats.
Invincible recently launched a 33-foot cat, the latest and smallest of its multihulls. “Invincible is No. 1 in sales of center consoles in the 30- to 42-foot size by units, and the addition of the 33 catamaran will further cement that dominance,” says Bill Cordes, vice president of marketing and sales. “It is an incredible boat that pushes the boundaries of offshore performance to a new level. It literally eats up rough seas.”
The new boat has an overall length of 33 feet, 11 inches, and its 10-foot, 3-inch beam carries through to the bow. This gives the boat plenty of level deck space and gobs of fishing room. It weighs 11,000 pounds and holds 400 gallons of fuel. Designed for twin outboards, the boat hits 65 mph at 6,800 rpm with a pair of 400-hp Mercury Verados. The 33 cruises at 41 mph, burning 28.1 gallons per hour netting 1.46 mpg.
The console has room for a pair of large MFDs, digital engine gauges and controls, and much more. There is one-piece seating for three at the helm, with stowage beneath the cushions. Abaft the helm is aft-facing mezzanine-style seating for three. There is a large tackle storage area behind the flip-down seat backs, as well as an insulated cooler beneath the seats. The console extends well forward to form a two-person lounge with stowage beneath. A head and dry stowage inside the console is accessed through a portside door.
Fishing features include a transom livewell with a high-speed pickup and sea chest, which can be customized with up to four pumps and flow controls. A transom door provides access to the engine platform. Two hatches in the transom provide stowage for dock lines, cleaning accessories and more tackle. The boat can be ordered with rod holders in the gunwales, transom, and along the console and lounge. Four in-deck fishboxes keep the day’s catch iced, and a hatch at the bow — flanked by dry stowage compartments — provides access to the ground tackle.
The Invincible 33 catamaran has a long list of options, including a fold-down tower with a second helm. It is a serious fishing boat with a proven pedigree. Visit invincibleboats.com for more information.
