Captain John


The Capt. John was designed for Williams Party Boats, Inc. (Galveston, TX) for a new high-speed catamaran party fishing boat. The profile, arrangement and hull configuration were custom-designed to suit the owner's requirements for fishing and safety.

Schuller and Allan (Houston, TX) was chosen for the design team. A 3-D model of the hull — including internals and neat shell expansion — was created and used for hydrostatic, hydrodynamic and lofting purposes.

The Z bow position was employed for this offshore catamaran to increase waterline length and reserve buoyancy in order to give the vessel improved motion characteristics. Being a full ocean "200 mile ticket" vessel, an enhanced and strengthened nacelle and forebody allow this vessel to handle some of the worst conditions the Gulf may impose.

On the front deck there is padded stadium seating for 21 people, great for the Whale Watch season. On the upper deck aft of the supper structure there are 57 padded bench seats.

There is a VIP lounge just aft of the pilothouse on the second deck for 15 passengers with a small bar and a private rest room. In the main cabin forward there is a large bar for the quest refreshments, two rest rooms, one ADA, three plasma screen monitors and a superb Stereo/PA system. The walls are covered with fabric and flooring with carpeting.

The Catalina Adventure’s hull form is a hydrofoil-supported catamaran utilizing the HYSUCAT technology. The hydrofoil-supported catamaran (HYSUCAT) is a hybrid of a planning catamaran and hydrofoil system, the catamaran offering high initial stability and large deck areas. The hydrofoils provide reduced resistance resulting in lower propulsion power requirements and dampened motions. There is a main foil forward and a trim able foil aft, called the CARE ride control system. The hydrofoils also lift the hull higher when planning which greatly reduces the height and energy content of the wake.
