Glacier Bay unveils 27-foot catamaran

Glacier Bay recently introduced its new 2770 27-foot cabin model catamaran designed to combine the company's offshore, rough water catamaran hull with fishing features and overnighting capability.

The new 2770 features the 26-foot hull design made famous by Glacier Bay exploits such as the Virginia Beach-to-Bermuda “Bermuda Challenge” and long-range excursions such as Seattle to Siberia. Using this hull shape, the Glacier Bay design team combined the cockpit layout of the 2740, introduced last year, with a cabin featuring a queen berth, lots of storage, an electric head and shower.

“Our challenge was to improve upon the most popular Glacier Bay ever built, the 2670 Cuddy Cabin model,” Chris Brockway, vice president of product development for the PowerCat Group, said in a statement. “We wanted to keep the great features of that model, improve upon them and add the all-composite technologies of our manufacturing system.”

The new Glacier Bay 2770 carries 180 gallons of fuel in two polyethylene fuel cells, giving the boat a range of more than 300 miles.

The Glacier Bay 2770 is a product of Glacier Bay, a division of the PowerCat Group. In addition to Glacier Bay catamarans, the PowerCat Group produces World Cat, Livingston and Carolina Cat catamarans.
