The “Sea Flight” shown here is a custom 40-foot welded aluminum foil-assisted catamaran built for a Florida tour and charter boat operator to accommodate a range of eco tours, dolphin watch cruises, and offshore fishing trips. It is the second Jutson Marine Design of its type to be built by Metal Shark and meets USCG Subchapter T standards.

Hull Design

This vessel features a highly efficient foil-assisted catamaran hull delivering unsurpassed performance, economy, and ride comfort. Specially engineered forward and aft transverse hydrofoils elevate the hull at planing speeds to substantially reduce drag. The result is significantly increased performance and fuel economy with modest power requirements. The vessel is powered by twin 440-horsepower Yanmar 6LY440 diesel engines coupled to Hamilton HJ292 water jets via ZF Marine 280-1 transmissions. Sea Flight cruises at speeds in excess of 30 knots and boasts a top speed of 40+ knots.

Deck Layout

The vessel featured here has been specifically configured for excursions and seats up to 33 passengers. Rod holders, beverage holders, tackle storage, live wells, fish boxes, and ample cooler space have all been provided. Well-placed grab rails assure ease of access through both port and starboard boarding gates. To accommodate night trips, white/red LED lighting has been provided throughout the vessel.


This 40 Cat has been equipped with bench seating for up to 33 passengers beneath a large aluminum-skinned canopy with roll-up curtain package for weather protection. This seating layout is ideal for Sea Flight’s intended use to offer a wide range of sightseeing, river and sunset cruises, Jet Ski tours and rentals, boat rentals, fishing trips and charters, eco-tours, educational field trips, and private family and corporate cruises. Like all Metal Sharks, this vessel is a fully custom platform that may be tailored to suit specific requirements. A full range of seating options are available.


This vessel has been equipped with a forward-positioned elevated helm station enclosed within a hybrid pilothouse. This offers full weather protection and a birds-eye view for the captain while still facilitating access to the passenger deck. A large dash area easily accommodates a full suite of navigation electronics. A wide range of helm seat options are available. The vessel is also equipped with an enclosed head with freshwater sink enhancing passenger comfort.
