Elevate your time on the water with the Razor Cat 38

Foiling Performance Power Cat

The hydrofoil system improves the performance and ride comfort, while increasing efficiency by up to 40% over non-foil assisted boats. Twin 300 HP outboards can push the Razor Cat 38 to a top speed of 45 knots and when cruising at 30 knots achieve an impressive 500+ mile range with 400 gallons of fuel aboard. This represents a very efficient total burn rate of approximately .5 gallons per mile, or 2 miles per gallon, or 13 gallons per hour at 30 knots!

Razor Cat 38 Power Cat – Overview

The Razor Cat 38 is an “escape pod” for adventure cruising; providing performance, efficiency, and comfort on the water through the unique features and well thought design. The hydrofoil system is designed and built by Icarus Marine who has over 17 years of experience designing and building hydrofoil systems for catamarans.  The hydrofoil system has proven to increases efficiency up to 40% over non-foiling boats, while also significantly improving performance and ride comfort. With 400 gallons of fuel aboard you have a 500+ mile range cruising at 30 knots, with a top speed of 45 knots.

A key design element that the Razor Cat 38 shares with the Razor Cat 52 is the central inside helm station and 360-degree views throughout the bridge deck from both the sitting and standing positions. The Razor Cat 38 provides seamless indoor/outdoor living with the Vista Door, which enables the entire aft wall of the salon to raise into the cabin top when desired. This combined with the near 17’ beam creates a very spacious “single level” living space that is larger, and more usable, than most 50′ monohull powerboats.

The innovation does not stop there. The cockpit has a built-in electric grill station on the port side (with a 12-volt icemaker beneath) and built in beverage fridge opposite on the starboard side. The aft cockpit seat spilts into two benches that can be relocated next to the deck steps when you want to access the transom. The transom folds down to make a large swimming platform or boarding area. The fold down transom has the added benefit that it extends beyond the end of the outboards when they are tilted out of the water which allows you to board from the transom when you are stern to a floating dock. You can also board the boat from either side with convenient side cockpit access just forward of the outboards.

The salon has a linear galley to port that spans almost 8 1/2 feet and features a 24″ work station sink, Vitrifrigo DRW180 stainless steel fridge/freezer drawers, induction cooktop and oven, along with generous storage. Opposite the galley is the settee which has a high/low folding table (when lowered forms a coffee table or a double berth). The settee seat backs can flip forward or aft facing depending on how you wish to use the seats, making the settee very versatile. The settees also have large slide out drawers beneath providing easy access to provisions. The central helm station commands the forward portion of the salon, with a large sliding hatch directly above the helm.

Each hull features a standard queen size berth with an opening hatch at the head of the berth and large hull window with an opening port, providing plenty of ventilation and light. The cabins have a generous amount of storage with slide out drawers at the foot of the berth, inboard hanging locker, and outboard storage shelves. Moving aft past the steps from the hull to the salon, you come to the head compartment and separate shower stall. Both the head compartment and shower stall have opening ports to assist with ventilation.

Forward of the salon is the systems room which is accessed by a large deck hatch that opens on gas struts. This is where the lithium ion batteries, inverter/chargers, and air conditioning units are located. This allows all the systems to be easily accessed and serviced while keeping them separate from the rest of the living area. Forward of the systems room is the comfortable forward cockpit which has storage beneath the cockpit seats. There are also large storage lockers in each bow, accessed by deck hatches and feature watertight bulkheads for added safety.

The salon cabin top features an integrated solar array along with tender storage area. The tender is launched/retrieved from either side of the cabin top by a removable carbon fiber crane and an electric winch.

With the Razor Cat 38 you enjoy the journey as well as the destination!
