FORT PIERCE — The boat business sure isn’t what it used to be, but one Treasure Coast builder accepts the new world order and is looking to make it even better.

Roger Dunshee, owner and founder of Twin Vee Catamarans in Fort Pierce, is rolling into next week’s Miami Boat Show with a production boat unlike any other made before it in the United States. But for boaters to really appreciate what makes Dunshee’s latest offering special, they will need to look below its decks and specifically between its hulls.

The 35 Twin Vee Hydrofoil Supported Catamaran offers the affordable quality for which the brand has been known, but with innovation that truly sets it apart from similarly designed catamarans and even vee-hulled boats.

The new Twin Vee incorporates the technology of a stainless steel hydrofoil that supports a portion of the watercraft’s weight during operation.

“The performance of this hull is phenomenal,” said Ernest Denning, a resident of Islamorada who recently drove his Twin Vee from Fort Pierce to his home in the Florida Keys. “I’ve had 50 boats and this thing handles like a Porsche.”

Denning said he ran his boat, rigged with twin Suzuki 300 horsepower outboard motors, 220 miles for 5 hours and 45 minutes, averaged 39 mph and used just 150 gallons of gas. He said he owns a Boston Whaler 32 Outrage and his Twin Vee is larger, wider, faster and burns one-third the fuel.

Foiled again

Dunshee said it’s important to adapt boats to the needs of those who are actively boating.

“Adding the foil enables the guy who enjoys fishing to have longer range, run faster and use less fuel,” Dunshee said. “People aren’t giving up fishing. They’re just trying to find ways to be able to do it more affordably.”

Dunshee said the new Twin Vee is available in two lines, a luxury Mamba version and a more economical Twin Vee version.
