Armstrong Debuts New Recreational Cat
The Mary James is a 35 x 13-ft. planing catamaran with full width superstructure, recently delivered after successful sea trials in late May. Designed and built by Armstrong Marine USA, the 3513-CTC is part of Armstrong’s growing portfolio of custom built recreational catamarans.
Twin Yamaha 425hp outboards paired with Helm Master electronic steering power The Mary James. Twin 200-gallon fuel tanks maximize range, navigated with a comprehensive Garmin/NMEA electronics package. A Northern Lights 5kW generator provides power on overnight excursions.
Well suited for fishing, The Mary James sports an extended T-transom, fish cleaning station with gut chute, and two fish lockers with macerators.
Additional customizations include Scotty downriggers, 16 aluminum rod holders, and a My-T-Hauler pot puller. A davit eases launch and rooftop loading of the tender.
The Webasto heated cabin sleeps six with two cuddy staterooms and a convertible dinette. Llebroc helm and co-pilot seats feature shock mitigating pedestals for rough Northwest waters. The head includes a hot water shower, and the galley is well-equipped with a Force 10 ceramic cooktop, Norcold fridge/freezer, and bar sink.
Perry Knudson, Armstrong Marine’s Managing Director, said, “This 3513-CTC is an exciting blend of new features with exceptional hull performance. We have delivered a high level of comfort in a vessel that is designed for serious anglers and adventurers alike.”
