The 32 Thunder Cat fits the booming “sport cat” segment of the performance-boat market, a sort of roadster for the water intended to be a good dayboat that’s fast and easy to own. Outboard power keeps the initial cost and cost to own under control compared to sterndrive power, and this boat’s 10-foot-2-inch beam and carefully considered balance make it stable and steady at speed. The hull and deck are formed from infused composite in a vacuum-bagged process, and the fully rigged boat weighs just 5,400 pounds. The bottom has a pair of steps, three pronounced lifting strakes and 15 degrees of over-all deadrise, but each surface is variable, and the most inboard pad section has a slight concave shape and allows the boat to heel over a bit into turns. Iconic Performance Group says the center of gravity and location of twin 60-gallon fuel tanks ensure that the boat stays steady all the way to top speed.
