Continuing its evolution of sport catamarans around Mercury Racing’s successful Verado 400R outboard engine, DCB Performance Boats of El Cajon, Calif., is in the process of building its first M33R model powered by a pair of the 400-hp outboards. According to DCB’s Jeff Johnston, the company already has four orders for the vacuum-infused 33-footer, which is expected to debut in February 2018.

DCB reportedly already has four orders for its new M33R catamaran.

In addition to the twin 400R outboards equipped with five-blade Mercury Max propellers, the “standard” version M33R catamaran is going to feature a Mercury Marine Vessel View 703 monitor and Mercury Racing DTS (digital throttle and shift) controls. Its six-person, poker-run-seating cockpit boasts a custom DCB interior, a custom plush carpet kit and a color-matched cuddy cabin under the deck.

The cockpit is going to be outfitted with LED lighting with matching LED cupholders, an upgraded stereo system and a SeaDek flooring package in rear/engine hatch area. Hardware includes a CNC billet swim step on the transom, six flush-mounted retractable cleats and six pin cleats for the included eight-inch fenders with matching DCB logos.

The M33R comes standard on a custom triple-axle trailer. As equipped, the 33-footer lists in the $385,000 range, according to Johnston.
