First and foremost, speed is fun: It is a thrill to be able to push the throttles forward and feel the boat accelerate. Even better, the speed Aspen Power Catamarans provide comes with the benefits of our super-efficient patented proa hull. Aspens deliver speed smoothly and efficiently, so a fast cruise doesn’t break the bank.
Longer days aboard become possible: A boat that is capable of going faster can give you more time in a quiet anchorage or docked in a great harbor town you have never visited before. When the boat has some knots up her sleeve, you can stay later in the day without worrying about arriving back at your home dock after dark.
Run away from or around weather: Weather radar has gotten so much better and more accessible we are able to look at the bands of a rainstorm and figure out how to avoid them or find their narrowest point to ease their passing. With the ability to get the boat through the gap more quickly, you can leave the rain astern and enjoy the rainbow.
Speed gives you options to make your boating safer: A good turn of speed means you can avoid problems. Speed helps the boat run safely through currents and allows the boat to handle better even in a following sea or when traversing a challenging inlet or river bar. The ability to throttle up and run with the waves makes cruising safer and more comfortable even when conditions get a bit sporty.
