The Bonita Springs Fire Department has upgraded a critical part of it’s life saving equipment.

The boat’s longer, it’s wider, has more storage, safer for us as the rescuers and passengers we have to bring on here,” said Lt. Richard Scott

The 26-foot custom built Twin Vee is equipped to perform fire and medical calls with advanced life support equipment, once it hits the water.

We can keep all the necessary equipment on here that we need, including water rescue equipment, medical equipment, our fire pump, and our foam that goes with it,” said Lt. Scott.

This twin engine, Twin Vee, is replacing the departments 22-foot Boston Whaler.

“One of things this boat is customized with is a rescue door, which gives easy access without hurting someone further.”

It’s thermal imaging will help fire crews spot a boat or someone in the water.

“What you see here is exactly how this would look at night which enables us to help find people, like victims in the water, or helping with navigation.”

Lt. Scott said this boat is essential to station number two.

A lot of the calls we have are in the Gulf, circumstances that aren’t always like today, windy conditions, very rough and that’s typically when people get in trouble.”

Twin Vee 35 Hydrofoil: Added Lift, Better Efficiency

Twin Vee 35 Hydrofoil: Added Lift, Better Efficiency

Features, Boat Reviews and Boat Tests  from

This new powercat from Twin Vee was designed specifically to carry hydrofoils, fore and aft, in its tunnel.

Twin Vee Powercats build some unique boats, and the latest to enter their line-up of one-of-a-kind cats is the 35 Hydrofoil. This boat was designed and built for foils, and with a pair of 300-hp Suzuki outboards on the transom, cruises in excess of 40-mph.


Twinvee boats

“The fuel and efficiency difference with the hydrofoils is incredible,” Twin Vee CEO Roger Dunshee told me, when the boat was introduced at the Miami Boat Show. “We had to design the boat specifically for them and it was quite an investment, but I just can’t believe how well it runs,” he said.

The foils generate both lift and trim stabilization, and in some cases can reduce a boat’s lift/drag ratio from 4.0:1 to 20:1. That additional lift and reduced drag mean you can use smaller powerplants to get the same speeds out of a boat, and one of the first owners claimed that his 35 gets better than three MPG at cruise.

If foils are so darn good, why doesn’t every cat builder use them? Design costs are a major reason, but results seem to vary from one model to another, too, with smaller boats seeing reduced benefits. When I tested a pair of 29’ cats a few years ago, one with and one without foils, the efficiency gain we measured was under 10-percent.

Foils aside, the 35 is built to be a serious fishboat, and includes a leaning post with rocket launchers, a tackle station, and a livewell; a walk-in console head compartment; fore and aft seating; and gunwale rodholders. The helm has plenty of space for those big, beautiful LCD screens we anglers love, and coaming bolsters line the gunwales.

The Best Saltwater Fishing Boat

A Boat Captain embraces twin hulls as the best saltwater fishing boat!

What is the ideal saltwater fishing boat? Hi, my name is Captain Roy Lawson I have been fishing in saltwater in Southern California since 1962, I have set or have helped others set forty one International Game Fish Association world records, I have owned and operated Top Gun Charters since 1978. I have skip-pered half day party boats, three quarter day party boats, all day party boats, and overnight tuna boats out of San Diego. I have owned boats from a forty five foot twin diesel six pack sport fisher down to the twenty four foot cuddy cabin walk around I now drive, there have been many boats in between these two.

All boats are a trade off between form and function, what looks great on the showroom floor may be your worst nightmare when you try to fish from it. I have been to many boat shows and less than five percent of the boats would make a really great saltwater fishing boat. I have spent the better part of my life in boats fishing on the ocean. Now after forty years of ocean fishing here is my choice for the ultimate salt water fishing boat. I won’t name any boat company’s because that way you know I am not writing an ad for anyone.



A catamaran is the best riding boat I have ever ridden in, the twin hulls slice through the waves without the pounding of a single hull boat, they don’t rock and roll when beam to the seas, they just kind of go up and down, and best of all they get almost triple the fuel economy of a single hull boat, and in the era of three to four dollars a gallon fuel, this one feature is huge. You can go much farther on the same amount of fuel.



Aprobado el uso de Hamilton Jetdrives para Cartagena

07 Agosto 2012, Florida, EE.UU.Yamaha J105 Jet Drive Cowling

Mar y Sol orgullosamente presenta barcos estilo catamarán con propulsión de chorro.

Gracias al interés del público de Cartagena y la necesidad de tener barcos cómodos con las ciénagas comunes en esa parte de Colombia, presentamos lo que posiblemente sea el primer catamarán con propulsión de chorro.

El uso de impulsores de chorro estilo Hamilton (conocidos como impulsores «jetdrive» en inglés) está aprobado para el uso con varios barcos con motores fuera de borda.

Los barcos de TwinVee, fabricados con materiales sintéticos ligeros calan muy poca agua por su diseño, sin embargo las ciénagas son poco profunda y suelen tener obstáculos semi-sumergidos.  Una colisión a velocidad con una helíce típicamente resulta con una o varias hélices dañadas.

El jetdrive proporciona una aceleración superior a la propulsión con hélices, y ofrece varias cualidades deseables para operación en las ciénagas.

  1. la unidad de propulsión cala menos agua que el casco de la embarcación
  2. el barco puede ejecutar maniobras con mayor facilidad
  3. no tiene hélice expuesto
  4. estorbar menos el fondo

Conversaciones con los fabricantes de los motores y de los barcos resultaron en la aprobación de varias combinaciones de barco y motor.

Para los que tienen o desean propulsión convencional, Mar y Sol también ofrece hélices de fabricación sintética diseñadas específicamente para colisiones subacuáticas.

Para mayor información favor de ponerse en contacto con Mar y Sol de Colombia, llamando al +57 (314) 541-3327; o bien enviando un correo a

Twin Vee: hydrofoil adds performance and efficiency to catamaran hull

Comments: No Comments
Published on: 2012/08/01


FORT PIERCE — Twin Vee Catamarans’ owner Roger Dunshee knows it’s hard to improve a ride that already receives rave reviews. But he figured out how to do just that.

The Hydrofoil Supported Technology or HYSUCAT makes Twin Vee the nation’s only builder of powered catamarans to include a hydrofoil under its hull.

The hydrofoil resembles an airplane wing that is mounted between the twin hulls of the catamaran attached to the bottom of the deck. It’s is made of 2205 stainless steel, one of the hardest kinds of steel that can be used. It works by slicing through the water and at high speed it serves to help provide more lift for the catamaran therefore reducing the friction and drag of the water on the hull.

“The end result is better fuel economy, faster speeds and an even smoother ride,” Dunshee said. “A guy can get to his favorite fishing grounds and back easier, more comfortably and more inexpensively.”

Dunshee said the decision to add an innovative feature such as a hydrofoil at a significant capital investment was an investment in Twin Vee’s future.

“Adding technology in this economy when other boat building companies are closing their doors speaks to where we’re headed,” Dunshee said. “Remaining competitive in the boating marketplace means we’re having to turn over a lot of rocks.”

The hydrofoil concept applied to the catamaran hull is adopted from technology used by a few builders in South Africa, Dunshee said.To learn more about the hydrofoil and Twin Vee Catamarans visit

Twin Vee expands its offerings of dual console to meet demands

Published on: 2012/07/21

From: Twin Vee Dual-Console Series – Features, Boat Reviews and Boat Tests –

Three models from Twin Vee combine tried-and-true twin-hull designs with twin-console decks.


The dual-console layout has grown in popularity in the past few years, so it’s no wonder Twin Vee decided to expand its offerings. These make for excellent family-fishing boats, since the second console adds protection for another passenger while the bow area gives the kids their own place to hang out, whether the rest of the family is water skiing or trolling for wahoo.

All are built with the usual Twin Vee construction methods: hulls made of hand-laid woven roving are filled with foam, fittings are stainless-steel, and fabrics are marine-grade vinyl. Fit and finish is not as nice as it is on some competing boats, but that’s one of the reasons why Twin Vees carry price tags that are notably lower than most competing boats. Note, for example, that the 22 Bay Cat DC starts at a mere hair over $25,000 with a 90-hp four-stroke Suzuki on the transom.

Most folks buy cats for their ride, of course, and in this regard these don’t disappoint. In fact, foot-for-foot they’re among the softest-riding boats around. The hulls trap and compress air in their “compression tunnels” as they move forward, and that cushion of air softens landings and reduces drag. That not only means your back hurts less, it also means you need fewer horses to go as fast as a monohull of the same size.

What makes Twin Vee Catamarans the best selling brand of catamarans today?  Well, the tale of two hulls is just the beginning of the story.  Dual hull catamarans cut like a knife through the water! The dual hull cats have many benefits from greater stability, lighter weight, less tendency to roll and greater fuel efficiency!  BUT, that is where the other power cats stop!

Where the Twin Vee Catamarans shine above the other power cats is their unique design!!  With Twin Vee’s unique Kinetic Fluid Induction design the boat rolls the wake of  the hulls into itself, it then creates compressed air bubbles inside the tunnel and acts as a shock absorber through the water.

Twin Vee Boats Review | Models, Pros/Cons, Pricing, Bottom Line.

Twin Vee boats are designed by Twin Vee Catamarans, Inc., located in Fort Pierce, Florida. Twin Vee claims its boats are some of the most fuel-efficient, stable, and affordable catamarans available now. Many boat owners agree, with particular praise for the great options for fishing offered by Twin Vee boats.

Twin Vee boasts a hull design superior to other small powerboats, allowing a comfortable and efficient ride, even in 4-5 foot chop at high speeds. Twin Vee also pioneered a hull design that allows single engine performance on models 19 feet and shorter. Most boat owners agree that a Twin Vee is easy to steer.

The boats also have a shallow draft, ranging from 7 inches on shorter boats to 14 inches on longer models, so they are capable of navigating shallow waters. Even so, most boat owners agree that the boats offer plenty of room.

The twin hull design of Twin Vee boats has several advantages. A twin hull boat rides more smoothly because it doesn’t have a large bottom surface to be slammed by the waves. Also, the twin hulls add a great deal of stability to the boat. Another advantage is that the twin hulls have less surface touching the water, which creates less drag, making the boat more fuel efficient. Finally, the twin hulls allow two engines to be farther apart, which makes the boat more easily maneuvered

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.

The tugboat trailed a solid set of wakes that stretched behind it by more than 6′ and there wasn’t much room for us to pass between it and the jetty. I started to pull the throttles back when the Twin Vee guy said I should firewall them.

How could I resist? We picked up speed and hit the first wave like it was a ramp (I may have even screamed), but to my surprise I didn’t lose any teeth when coming down because there was no hard impact to speak of. The deep, sharp hulls split the waves and reentered softly. In fact, once outside the inlet, I tried everything to make the boat pound or ride squirrelly, but to no avail.

How does the 29 CC fish once you’re at the deep? I glanced back into the spread and saw a clean and organized wake – no messy froth as you’d see on some cats. With a 9’10” beam and more than 120 square feet of cockpit space, your day should stay enjoyable even with a nagging brother-in-law at your heels. I was impressed with the twin forward rod stowage hatches that together can rack 12 assembled trolling rods with the tips running down 71/2′ tubes.

Hull Design: The Most Important Buying Decisions You Can Make in A New Boat

Whether you use your boat in open water or protected areas, there is nothing else that will make as much difference in your boating pleasure as the design of your hull.

Much has been written about the different designs of V-hulls and certainly there is a vast difference in the performance and rise of these hulls, but almost without exception, a catamaran design hull will ride superior to any V-hull. It’s simple, catamarans ride better because they have two hulls. Think about this for a moment.The sharper and deeper you make a V-hull, the better it cuts through the water. The problem is, when you stop, the single V-hull boat rocks constantly because you are sitting on a point. Catamarans have much sharper and deeper hulls than V-hulls and they have two, which add to their stability, when either going slow or stopped.

But, all catamarans are not the same. So what is happening on a catamaran and why are they such great riding hulls? To answer these questions, we went to one of the leading power catamaran designers, Roger Dunshee, of Twin Vee Catamarans, Inc. He currently has eleven hull lengths in production and sells more power catamarans than any other manufacturer in the United States….exceptional performance with great fuel economy!Roger tells us his catamarans use a combination of both displacement and planing factors. The entry is very sharp and cuts through the water, while the remaining hulls lift to allow the boat the use of smaller engines, for exceptional performance with great fuel economy!

The writer of this article takes a Twin Vee Power Cat skeptic on sea trials with a “large tropical storm..pushing through.”  The skeptic was so impressed with the performance he went on to purchase a 26 ft Twin Vee!  The article below highlights his adventure on the seas and his conversion to embrace the benefits of the Twin Vee Power Catamaran!

“I always felt that few things in this world were sexier than those long, sleek, over-powered, deep-v, center consoles that we so often see associated with the Southern Kingfish Association. You know the kind of boat I’m talking about – roaring across three foot seas at fifty-five miles per hour, while the motors are sucking in gas quicker than the cooling systems can suck in water. Even if I never fished again, just coming home to one of those beauties in my driveway would keep a smile on my face and prove to all that drove by that I was a force to be reckoned with in the offshore fishing arena.”

The Mamba 350: A Stable Powercat

A hydrofoil reduces rolling and steadies the ride at high speeds for this catamaran hull.

Most power catamarans deliver a smooth ride in rough seas, but some can be unstable while drifting, rolling in a jerky motion. And, at cruising speeds, some cats can be susceptible to yawing. A Florida builder is using a hydrofoil system in a 35-foot center console cat to reduce rolling and steady the ride at high speeds.

Richard Pike, president of Mamba Marine in Sarasota, introduced the Mamba 350 in March at the Palm Beach Fla., Boat Show, and I had a chance to drive the boat in Sarasota on a day perfect for a cat test: 18-knot winds with seas 3 to 5 feet. The boat ran through the white-capped waters of the Gulf of Mexico without slamming. I put the engines in neutral and positioned the beam to the sea to gauge stability. No snap rolls. And in a following sea, the Mamba maintained a straight course.

The hydrofoil not only brings stability but raises the running surface to reduce drag and improve efficiency, says Pike. With twin 300-hp Suzuki 4-strokes, the boat cruised at 39 mph, burning 19 gallons per hour, which equates to 2.1 miles per gallon. “That’s very good for a boat of this size,” says Pike, a former Wall Street investor who used to race small sailing catamarans.

In calmer water, the Mamba — built with a solid fiberglass bottom and vacuum-bagged, cored hull sides and decks — leaned into its turns in monohull fashion. Absent were the strong pulling forces common with some cats during high-speed turns — in other words, the boat goes to port, you go to starboard.

The Mamba’s hydrofoil design, called Hysucat, has been around since 1980, developed by Gunter Hoppe of South Africa. On the Mamba, the stainless steel foil is through-bolted into the hulls, spanning the tunnel, and doesn’t extend below the boat’s draft. A vertical strut also supports it.
