The Havana 38 power cat is built by Cruiser Cats of Cape Town, South Africa. Clark E. Boeken founded the company three years ago.
The Havana 38 was built for cruising. The layout includes three staterooms, two heads and two showers. Powered with twin 150-hp Yanmar diesels, the boat cruises at about 15 knots (1.3 nmpg). At 8 knots, mileage improves to 3.9 nmpg. Fuel capacity is 300 gallons.
A large U-shaped settee with a dinette is the focal point of the cabin. The boat has a hardtop with a raked windshield. "I tried to give it a retro-modern look, like a Sea Ray Express," Boeken says. "I tried to make it more appealing than the standard [cat] look."
