ABOUT THE JO-DAN IV
Built for Portsmouth based charter SKIPPER Phill Hunt, 'Jo Dan IV' is only the second WILDCAT catamaran to be delivered to UK skippers. She is fitted with twin Volvo 63P engines @ 370 hp and has a maximum speed of 26kts on a 10,200kg displacement with a comfortable 22kts cruise.
Phill Hunt, the Skipper, has been "messing about in boats" most of his life. He is an experienced fisherman and an active member of the Professional Boatman's Association, he is a fully qualified Offshore Skipper holding a Certificate of Competence as an RYA/MCA Coastal Skipper.
He is also a PADI Advanced Diver and has dived wrecks all over the world, especially the Red Sea and the Caribbean, including the "Thistledorm" for those in the know! He frequently takes out Dive Charters but now says he is too old and it's too cold for him to dive the Solent himself these days! He prefers the warmer climes!
Phill also works closely with Shakespeare, one of the largest fishing tackle suppliers in Europe, and "Jo-Dan 1V" currently enjoys their sponsorship.
"Jo-Dan 1V" acts as a Test Boat for Raymarine and is equipped with the latest Marine Electronics currently available.
