970XL Butt Cat

The 970 is 'chockablock' full of the fishing features offshore anglers crave. The handling is exceptional and when combined with reliable construction its a win, win all round. Besides being a quality built boat we have still integrated it with many of the classic angling traits that are not all bank account draining extras. The 970, a product of our 9 meter hull, will enable you to spend the extra time offshore in harsher surroundings. Its performance in rough and tumble conditions is legendary especially if you have some knowledge of the Butt Cat Hulls.  Also available in the scaled down, JB Fisher version.
