Let’s take a closer look at the Invincible 33 Catamaran in this boat review. If I were trying to sell the performance or demonstrate to someone who’d never ridden on a power catamaran fishing boat how well they handled rough weather- jumping on any of the Invincible Cats would be a great first step. After being blown away by the 37 Invincible Cat last year, the 33 had its work cut out for it. My first concern was “could Invincible build one small enough to run great with only twin power that would also stand up to offshore weather of any consequence?” The short and long answer is, absolutely.
The 33 Catamaran proved to be another Morrelli and Melvin hull design that delivers a smooth, dry, and remarkably solid ride in real world offshore weather. Each of these models are laid out similarly and the new 33 Cat is a scaled down version of each of her bigger sisters. The difference is how much roomier this 33-foot boat feels due to her wise use of every inch of over 300 square feet of work space. A quick 360-degree spin around the single level deck reveals four extra-large insulated fish holds underfoot in the bow and amidships. A pair of large livewells (up to 70-gallons) are in the transom and below deck to starboard, each supplied via sea chest and outfitted with primary and spare pumps.
Plenty of tackle storage is available hidden behind the mezzanine seat back on the helm station as well as on both sides of the helm box and within the transom bulkhead to port. A large drink cooler is also below the mezzanine seat. For rod storage, there isn’t a location on board where you won’t find a rod holder on either side of you within arm’s reach. The helm is enclosed on three sides in glass with a triple wide seat facing a centered helm control. A pair of 400 Mercury engines pushed the 33 into the 60 MPH range with ease.
For any remaining dyed in the wool old school non-believers who are on the fence regarding the roominess, comfort, performance and ride that a perfectly designed catamaran offers, a ride on the Invincible 33 will without a doubt push you over the edge.
