The Meerkat Boat
The Meerkat is an exceptionally stable vessel both at anchor and on the drift,
11 metres in length and 4.5 metres in width, she is a roomy boat.
She has a full galley, private on-deck toilet and plenty of comfy seating.
The Meerkat is powered by twin 200hp turbo charged diesels she will cruise very comfortably at 17 knots and will achieve 23 knots at sprint speed.
As a fishing platform, she is excellent, she makes very little fuss in the water due to her very fine entry bows and because she makes little fuss she is also a very dry boat even at speed in choppy waters!
