Donona, the original StormAngler mould.

NOW another special date at the Festival of the Sea, this photo shows the original wooden boat from Port Weymss which the Stormcats StormAngler mould was taken from. Also importantly, the Bowmore high school boys took on the task (supervised by Freddie Bell) to restore Donona to her original and a lovely job they have done. Donona has a lovely flared bow and wide stern, StormCats has built 14 of her sister boats which can now be found as far south as Bodmin in Cornwall and as far North as Orkney.

New Model Tope Hunter

Stormcats Islay have launched two new models of the very succesful Tope Hunter,a 5 and 5.9 NEW model. This ALL NEW model Tope Hunter has clean lines, a full internal moulding which allows a very large front storage locker. All electronics can be flush mounted, dash is wrap around type which has a mounting area for the outboard clocks. There is also a moulded step forward for stepping aboard pontoons or harbours, the stern lockers have been made bigger, this has also made the stern seats bigger than the old shape Tope Hunter.

All in all this is a big step forward in the layout, but the important thing is the Hull shape stays the same, as she has a unique and capable hull which has been well proven from all corners of the Uk.

For a good look at everything these new models have to offer visit our media gallery with the latest images or watch the Tope Hunter slideshow below.

Stormcats Boat News December

This 5.0m StormAngler was handed over to its new owner, Rosalind in autumn this year. Rosalind is looking forward to using it next summer to relax and spin around the Loch Indaal, which is a perfect way to spend a summer evening on Islay.


Stormangler at Port Ellen


“Chuffed” was a 5.0m Tope Hunter custom built for Don Craven who like many before has fallen for the charms of Islay. If you are going to enjoy Islay to the maximum, getting out on the water will let you appreciate what the island has to offer. Equipped with a 50HP Tohatsu engine, VHF and Garmin fish finder it’ll give you a top speed of knots. The excellent deck space makes it ideal as fishing boat both for the serious angler and beginner and for wildlife watching. Stormcats wishes Don the best of luck and enjoy your island hopping.


Tope Hunter "Chuffed"


This Stormbreaker 710 sport is shortly to be delivered to another small island off Norway. Powered by an Evinrude 200 HP engine it has all the features you would expect from our models - Garmin fisher finder, sports spoked steering wheel and railings in 316 stainless steel.

New orders
Two customers will shortly have new custom made Tope Hunters. One local man ordered a Tope Hunter as soon as he returned to Islay to start a new job. The second new order is for a 5.9 metre Tope Hunter which will be delivered to Norway in the new year. We are working closely with Lars, the customer, who is a keen fisherman used to sub zero temperatures. Pedestals will be fitted which will withstand the constant thawing and freezing temperatures and therefore be able to withstand the local conditions. Watch this space for photographs of our new deliveries in 2011.
