|A very sleek and stylish performance cruising catamaran with impressive sail performance.
This catamaran was totally upgraded inside and out in 2011 by her owner then, a professional Australian shipwright. Nothing but the best quality materials were used and the result was a very well presented and impressive vessel with modern lines that turns heads everywhere she goes.
The yacht is incredibly sturdy, the hulls have been enhanced with Kevlar laminate (450g) below the waterline plus a double overlap of kevlar along the keel line. Additional carbon reinforcement along the keel line, rudder areas, bridge deck and cockpit sole makes for a very reassuring yet light weight vessel. You won't find comparable strength and performance in many other vessels at this price range!
This vessel can really move with excellent sailing performance in even the lightest winds - she readily sails when other cruising yachts have to motor. She can reach speeds above 20 knotts with daily runs approaching 300nm. Her performance as a cruiser has been well tested, having completed multiple ocean crossings.
The two reliable Volvo Penta 29hp engines with sail drive (boots replaced 2010) are very fuel efficient.
Other features include a specifically designed carbon bowsprit, carbon targa, carbon davits, and custom carbon sacrificial bow stem collision caps.
