With a wealth of experience under their umbrella both Cougar Powerboats and Offshore racing Services benefit from a vast knowledge of the powerboat industry both technically and commercially.
From the Company’s beginnings in 1969 the Cougar name has been synonymous with cutting edge technology with both mono and multihull powerboat designs for commercial, military, racing and leisure purposes. For over 47 years our constant striving to make technical advantages in the development of high strength and lightweight structures to maximise performance on the water has forged an enviable reputation that is recognised throughout the maritime world.
Originally founded by Clive Curtis, James Beard & Chris Hodges the company today is run by and continues its winning ways through Clive’s son, multiple World Champion Steve Curtis and the Cougar team.
A long line of high performance craft with impeccable sea keeping have been designed and produced, from boats thoroughly tested and proven on race circuits around the world. The first catamaran to win an international offshore powerboat race was a Cougar and this revolutionary design heralded an era of dominance, which is still today echoed by the Company’s involvement with developing Honda’s one class race series into the largest one design series in the world and its involvement with the Spirit of Qatar offshore racing team.
Lessons learned and technology researched and developed in racing has been directly used in the design and production of Cougar’s entire range of boats, even down to the introductory 6 metre rigid inflatable boat. The Company prides itself on this unrivalled approach and will always seek to strive and refine all processes to the benefit of our clients.
Today Cougar is not a high volume manufacturer but it specialises in building custom bespoke boats around the clients requirements.
