Blyth 17m Workcat performance offers legendary Blyth safety, stability, speed and seaworthiness. Blyth's catamaran hulls have low drag so fuel economy is superior to that of similar sized monohulls at similar speeds. Maneuverability, both at low and high speed and in deep or shallow water, is also exceptional.
The Blyth 17m has been developed with choice in mind and includes tooling provision for either conventional shaft drive or water jet options.
