I doubt you can even buy a Cat with 150 gallons.

My boat... Which has circumnavigated... has 38 gallons in the tank and about the same in gerry cans.

Why in the world is a boat maker going to design a boat without useful tankage.

Go find a boat your wife will want to live on for 10 years and buy that. I am sure you won't even have to enquire as to the tankage.
