The folks at Performance build one catamaran
and there are many options from the screecher to air conditioning
, but yes only those that they offer. I wanted a different VHF radio
, standard equipment
, so I put an Icom
in and sold the stock radio
. Performance uses and offers equipment
that they feel meets the boats needs/requirements; the Screecher bow track is such an option and specific to the bow of the 105.Their boats are built with specific equipment in mind by design it seems.
Next door to Performance in Annapolis
is Peter Kennedy Yacht services and he did all our after purchase
installations. I gave the batteries to a friend, I had a months use on them. I changed to Life Line sealed batteries from the lead acid because I added batteries to unvented locations.
Performance uses Kato davits, an option with a solar panel on top. I had Kato davits on my Island Packet
350 and I put a solar panel on top. If it had not been an option from Performance I would have used them. I have never owned any other brand so I cannot know if others are better or not, but I had them for five years up and down the Caribbean
and some kind of rough conditions without a problem. Kato is located two doors down from Performance in Annapolis
and they buy a lot from them, not sure about price
difference. I thought it was pretty slick that I could have davits installed by the factory. Kato's stainless work is beautiful.
