Well, what exactly are you looking for? What do you consider a good cat fishing boat?

Any boat can be a catfish boat.

true but some platforms are better at some things than others... for instance, flat bottoms are great for going shallow, but they take a beating getting to the spot. I really like my deep V when its windy and choppy.

A feller really needs 2 boats. One for deep water fishing and one for shallow water fishing.
Both should have shade and a beer cooler and a potty and a microwave and a stereo.
And a hammock. Bikini gurls are nice too.

given the available options with NEW boats, you are mostly correct. However, there really is no reason a boat cannot be good at both. My Sea Nymph striper proves that. Deep V hull all the way and I can get along in less than 2 feet of water yet I have taken her out 27 miles in the gulf. And no I don't mean on a glassy day with Kayaks around... I was out in terrible 20 knot winds and rain with ~4 foot swell.

I think the issue is that they build them a lot heavier nowadays. I think my boat weighs about 1200 lbs with the engine, maybe less and is a 19 foot boat. I was emailing with tuffboats because they looked like they might have a modern day replacement for my aging boat. They said their boats weigh 3500 lbs with engine!

Don't you fish phantom a bit? I've never seen a pro cat out there, but I'd like to check one out in person.

I have a center console. I can't think of any better boat to catch catfish from.
