Florida Sportsman coverage of the 3070 and 3080 models from Glacier Bay.

Glacier Bay’s 3070 Isle Runner and the 3080 Coastal Runner are not your ordinary offshore cats. Essentially the same boat, the 3080 is the hard top version. In addition to the sea-keeping qualities of the twin sponsons, the catamaran design provides a large fishing cockpit and generous cruising accommodations. With her shoal draft, she can cruise in many areas off limits to other boats and the cats’ offshore performance is already known. When we were offshore on the 3080 she ran very comfortably into and downsea in a nasty short chop. Although it was not necessary to slow down, it was demonstrated that the boat remains on a level running attitude even at a reduced speed of about 16 MPH.

The bridge deck has an L-shaped seating area, a galley that converts to additional seating, helm and companion seats and companionway to the cabin.


High railings and just enough space to walk to the bow.


Once you’re up there, there’s plenty of space, and even a little seat cushion for inshore cruising.

Twin 250-horse four-strokes flank an innovative transom dive/boarding platform.


Helm station with adjustable footrest and wheel. And that seat?…
