IT'S A CHAMBERLIN!  Anyone who knows Chamberlin knows that it stands for exceptional integrity of multihull design by one of Australia's most respected and established designers, Robin Chamberlin.

ZENDOG was designed by Robin at the owner's request as vessel loosely based on the renowned Chamberlin Nimbus design but with extra payload capability. Hence a stunning yacht that combines all the things a good multihull should have such as; the excellent bridgedeck clearance provides a smooth, uncompromised ride in all conditions especially to windward. Weight distribution is centred with the shaft driving engines and tankage amidships and the collision bulkheads and watertight compartments in the 3 metres of the bows and sterns. Well-designed steps, safe decks and hand-holds are a great feature. Foam sandwich construction with vinylester resin and laid knitted fibreglass construction gives stiffness, durability and lightness.

The look and feel of this boat is BIG but the handling is easy thanks to the simplicity of design of the rig and the hardware layout. The owner has sailed alone for the last 3 years and has found her an easy vessel to handle including the berthing with the engines driving powerful 4 bladed folding props. The cockpit helm position gives great visibility and is totally out of the weather. Great for sailing the cold latitudes and minimising sun exposure.

The layout is designed primarily for a couple to go extended [world] cruising with occasional friends visiting or maybe a child or two. The large easy to move around cockpit can be fully enclosed with a mixture of screens or clears to provide a weatherproof living area. All internal living areas are insulated and lined with a stunning imported vinyl and the cabins are finished in a Queensland Silver Ash veneer. Custom mattresses are supported on Euro-slat bed bases design giving superb comfort while the furniture is fitted with folding doors and drawers on soft-close systems giving an apartment feeling. The combination of LED lighting and carbon fibre trims adds to the luxury. Two stunningly finished bathrooms, one in each hull, have separate showers with glass shower doors. High gloss metallic paint finishes compliment the vanities. The large galley is in the starboard hull but is open to the full length of the saloon allowing interaction with the guests and providing a servery.

Finished in stainless steel it is easily maintained and gives a commercial feel to it. Fridges, m/wave, dishwasher, and oven are at waist height giving superb accessibility. The galley in the starboard hull flows forward to a cabin that is totally fitted as a pantry, with all the storage a chef could want.

Performance is excellent...... Whether under engines, motor sailing or going to windward.   Pointing high it creates apparent wind and will achieve 7-9 knots in 12-16 knots true [well out performing the bareboat charter multis]. For example, one engine motor in calm waters @ 2200rpm will give 8 knots. Fuel consumption is minimal varying from under 3 litres per hr to 8 litres per hr.

The next owner will not be disappointed. They will have a stunning yacht that everybody compliments you on and will get them out of port and SAFELY back again and it will be in comfort.

A True world cruising craft designed for ability, safety and amazing at sea comfort. Ready to sail away, "Tahiti looks nice"
