JANA I

This was our very first Carry Cat 670 (Build late 2014), she performed so well that we decided to upgrade her to the Carry Cat 670 Sport, which basically provided a larger cabin, higher gunnels, deeper hulls, more luxury seating and overhaul an improvement in many ways! See below our new vessel specs! We sadly sold the JANA I early in 2018, with many many good memories. We caught a variety of fish species with many happy fisherman faces!
