Splendor's unique catamaran hull is the unique driving force behind what makes our boats so special. The hull design compacts air and water as they travel through the inside of the boat's tunnel. The result is water and air pushing up on the hull at takeoff, thus forcing the craft up on plane very quickly with minimal bow rise. The constant flow of air through the tunnel is one of the attributes that allows our boats to eliminate the pounding other boats experience in rough waters. Dividing the hull into a catamaran allows the boat to cut through chop, and thanks to years of improving our design, turns are tight and smooth with very little power loss. Our catamaran hull drafts just 12" of water, providing a much more shallow hull draft than traditional vee-bottom boats.
