FunCat Electric Catamaran from a Kid's Perspective

This week we would like to share with you the FunCat from a kid’s point of view. We know that kids love FunCats; we’ve seen the smiles on their faces, and the twinkles in their eyes. But we would love to share the comments that have been shared with us from the minds of our child models, family friends, and customer’s children.

FunCat electric catamarans are fantastic, and perfect for kids. They offer the comfort of a wide chaise lounge that allows people to relax side-by-side, while silently cruising the water at 4mph. Because they are electric there is no need for messy gasoline, dirty oil, or even sails. Just plug the FunCat in and charge it! The charge will last 4-6 hours with continuous use as long as you use the recommended marine batteries, and we love the FunCat’s control system because it is so fun and simple to use.

FunCats are very easy. That is what makes them so great for kids of all ages. They are easy to transport, easy to launch, easy to climb onto, easy to drive, easy to maintain — They are just easy!

Jordan age 3 says: “It’s EASY to get on a FunCat… you just walk right on!”

The most popular aspect of a FunCat seems to be the controls. The kids love the fact that they can control the watercraft on their own. It is so simple and fun to learn that they can’t wait to get their hands on those buttons.

“The FunCat is cool, because the controls are so easy to use, and I could use them by myself.” — Tawny age 14

"The best thing was that even I could drive one...I wish my Dad would buy me one!" — Parker age 6

“I rided on it and the buttons made it go forward and backwards! I sat next to my brother James, and he let me drive." — Jordan age 3

FunCats have two motors that control two recessed propellers — one on each pontoon. The controls, which consist of two rocker switches (buttons that can be pushed forward or backward), are on the right armrest (just behind the convenient cup holder). Each button controls one propeller. If you push both forward you’ll go forward; both back you’ll go backwards. The fun part is figuring out how to turn– push the right switch forward, and you’ll turn left; push the left switch forward and you’ll go right. And pushing the two switches in opposite directions will even make the boat spin in a perfect 360!

Playing on the water is always a blast for kids, but the FunCat makes it even more fun! Riding out onto a lake or bay, and splashing the water as you cruise makes happy memories for the whole family!

“I liked swinging my feet in the water! That was so much fun! Can we go again?” — Sawyer age 4
“I liked it because you could explore the water without having to get wet. It would be a great alternative and fun way to get a suntan.”  — Tawny Age 14

FunCats offer a way for families to share their love of water together while exploring rivers, lakes or even the ocean. Whether you are waking up early with your kids and a pile of fishing gear, or cruising a calm lake while your kids drive in the summer sun, it is guaranteed your kids will have a great time — and so will you!
