IN THE OWNERS' WORDS:

"The past 15 years with OCEAN have been an amazing, rewarding journey. But now it's time to let her go. OCEAN has taken us places we never dreamed we'd go--literally and figuratively--and we have learned so much from her, learned how to be better sailors and (we hope) more thoughtful people. If this sounds like we are giving OCEAN too much credit (she is just a boat, after all), let us explain.

Before we had our catamaran, we had a dream. We'd grown up living lucky lives--great parents, a childhood spent sailing and racing, and coastal cruising with our families (Tom in Southern California, Harriet in Connecticut). By the time we were old enough to say goodbye to our corporate careers, we weren't ready to retire from life. We wanted to give back, to help others. When we sailed through Mexico and the South Pacific on a previous boat, a 28-foot Bristol Channel Cutter named freelance, we'd seen poverty and communities that needed help. But we were unequipped to help them.

Back in 2007 when we decided to leave our jobs and go cruising again, we wanted a boat that would not only be an ocean-going and liveaboard vessel but would enable us to lend a hand. At first, we weren't sure how or where we could help. But in 2008 when we sailed our new Dolphin 460 north from the Dolphin Catamaran shipyard in Aracaju, Brazil, through the Eastern Caribbean enroute to our home port of New Bedford, Massachusetts, we found our answer. Six English-speaking countries of the Eastern Caribbean (Antigua, St. Lucia, Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada) had longstanding child literacy problems. Children were growing up without books to read, and thus were not learning to read. Schools, drastically underfunded, were unable to turn Caribbean children into readers.

Caribbean child literacy--pre-school to primary school to high school--became the focus of Hands Across the Sea, Inc., our new charity. We also named our Dolphin Hands Across the Sea, but in case you are wondering, the charity did not fund our boat; we paid for our boat, all the maintenance and equipment upgrades, and every marina berth and haul out, out of our own pocket. That was the right way to do it. The money we fundraised for Hands (the charity) went to helping Caribbean children.

The years flew by. We spent every summer and fall in New England raising money and packing books in a warehouse, where they were shipped to the Caribbean on cargo vessels. Each school received exactly the books they requested in their "Wish List, " and the books were brand new, age- and content-appropriate, filling the shelves of school libraries (most of them newly-created via our Hands Library Guide). This process was costly and time-consuming, but it resulted in sustainable, top-notch libraries (other charities send used, worn-out, inappropriate books). We spent the winter months in the Eastern Caribbean, visiting and mentoring over 100 schools in the islands each season. This "work commute" meant making the 3,500-mile round trip from Massachusetts to the Eastern Caribbean 11 times. The passages were often windy and rough.

Fast forward to 2021, when we co-founders (Harriet was the CEO, Tom the Marketing Director) stepped away from our charity to go bluewater cruising. We renamed the boat OCEAN, the boat underwent an extensive refit in 2021 at a leading Maine shipyard, and we set out for the Pacific We'd already sailed 40,000 miles on her, and this 12-month, 11,000-mile journey (Massachusetts-Bermuda-Puerto Rico-Panama-Galapagos-Marquesas-Societ y Islands-Fiji-New Zealand) would be our most ambitious yet. We left Hands, the charity, behind, having sent new amazing books to 420 libraries and reading programs, 400 pre-schools, reaching over 150,000 children.

Yes, we made a difference--we will always treasure that accomplishment. But for OCEAN, it is sadly time to part with her. We have left the U. S. To start a new life in New Zealand, in the Bay of Islands, a magnet for sailors returning from the sea. OCEAN--equipped for passagemaking, a comfortable liveaboard--is too accomplished of a boat to swing on a mooring. We are searching for a new owner who will cherish and enjoy OCEAN, and keep her cruising and crossing oceans. Now here's a look at working directly with Junior Pimenta, the owner of Dolphin Catamarans, and Philippe Pouvreau, the designer, and the yearlong process of creating OCEAN.

Safety and Construction Integrity:

We chose the Dolphin 460 not only for its performance under sail (with 7' 6" daggerboards and inboard jib leads, the boat performs particularly well to windward) but for its built-in safety. Each hull has five watertight collision bulkheads and three watertight cabin sole compartments. The hull-to-deck joint is not bolted or riveted (the shortcut way to build a catamaran), but is a wide flange that is glassed inside and out. The daggerboards and trunks are extremely strongly built. Protective "breakaway" fins are bonded forward of the SailDrives for protection. In 15 years of sailing her, we have seen no flexing or deflection in the vacuum-bagged vinylester/Divinycell deck or hulls--testament to the quality of Dolphin Catamarans' engineering and construction.

Solar Powered:

When we say "solar powered" we mean electrical power for daily liveaboard use. Our vision of cruising doesn't include emitting partially-combusted diesel fuel and exhaust into the environment every day. We specified the maximum number of solar panels (1,035 watts) onto the hardtop bimini, which has powered our daily needs (refrigeration, watermaker, laptops, occasional use of appliances or power tools) while at anchor or the dock. The need to charge using the engine, usually in rainy weather, is rare. Note that in setting up our solar charging system, our "energy audit" did not include a large freezer--the downfall of many cruising boats that requires daily genset or engine use. If you "need" a big freezer, you'll need to run a Genset every day.

Sail Plan for Doublehanding:

After we chartered a Dolphin 460 for a week in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and before we began creating OCEAN, we decided that the standard 150% genoa was a bit too much sail for breezy trade wind conditions. In over 15 knots of wind, the genoa is a handful to handle, and the sail reefs poorly and doesn't perform well to windward. We asked Philippe Pouvreau if we could have a working jib (97% overlap) with a jib boom that could be vanged down to strong padeyes to remove leech twist, making the sail efficient on all points of sail. Pouvreau not only said "Yes!" immediately, he raised the mast height two feet and lengthened the main boom 1.5 feet to help compensate for lost sail area. In this and in many other areas, we were very lucky to have Junior Pimenta, Philippe Pouvreau, and the Dolphin Catamarans construction team behind us.

Performance and People:

he Dolphin 460 is an offshore performance cruising catamaran. OCEAN sails efficiently to windward, and jumps up easily to 8.7 to 9.0 knots under mainsail and working jib when close- and beam-reaching and further off the wind. Under screecher (called a Code 0 in North Sails lingo), usually flown with the apparent wind aft of 80 degrees (5 knots of wind) to 120+ degrees (up to 20 knots true wind speed), the boat speed jumps to a steady 9.5, with bursts to 11,12, or 13 knots and higher. But we've found that the boat can "outperform the people. " Carrying too much sail, especially in boisterous sea conditions, increases the demands on the sails, rigging, and autopilot, and can give everyone on board, particularly the off-watch person, a bouncy, noisy (water rushing by the hull) ride. When it comes to reducing sail, the old monohull adage applies: you should reef when you first think of it. It's fun to go fast, but it's even better to go (slightly) less fast and have a far more enjoyable ride. (Sermon over!)

The Dolphin 460 is a performance cat, but it will not fly a hull, capsize, or pitchpole downwind. The design parameters are moderate and commonsense in every respect. The Dolphin sails to windward well, it doesn't bury its bows when surfing, and the freeboard is moderate, unlike ultra-high freeboard, multi-storied, high center-of-gravity charter boats (and even some performance boats). In our experience, the moderation demonstrated in OCEAN's design and construction make her a solid, trustworthy vessel for a cruising couple or family who want to sail safely across oceans and live aboard in comfort with a minimal footprint on the environment.

Accommodation
The saloon is spacious, open and filled with light thanks to the eight, large wraparound Lexan windows. It features a curved seating area and a varnished oval table of beautiful Brazilian hardwood which slides down on its pedestals. Two insert cushions will make a "rest area" for on-watch and off-watch crew during passages. The on-watch person can sit and read here while easily moving back and forth to the helm to check the course and scan the horizon. This rest area also serves as a spacious napping and lounging area and an eating area in rough seas. Cushions, new in 2021, are covered with easy-care Navy Blue Ultrasuede. There is stowage under the saloon cushions, and under-seat areas are easily accessible from the galley and the starboard hull.
The Brazilian hardwood dining table easily fits 4-6 people around the oval with another 1 to 2 people on the ottoman. The moveable ottoman, with convenient stowage under its seat, completes the seating arrangement.

Amidships under the seating area forward is the stowage for four of the boat's six AGM batteries, accessed through a lid below the seat cushion. On the starboard side aft is a nav station with VHF radio, switch panel, access to the solar panel controllers, EPIRB, and electronics. On the port side aft is a benchtop with cupboard and fridges below. Outboard on the port side is a small shelf.

Two Lewmar Ocean cabin top hatches and two fans provide plenty of ventilation. In the saloon and throughout OCEAN, the headliner features cream-colored vinyl-covered panels with LED lighting. A few of the panels are attached with Velcro for easy access. There are beautifully varnished wood accents throughout to provide an attractive nautical feel while not having too much brightwork to maintain.

The cabin sole is an easy-to-maintain laminate with woodgrain finish, bonded to marine plywood. To warm up the cabins in cold climates, a four-zone Hurricane diesel-fired heater supplies warm, thermostat-controlled air via radiators. Utilizing shore power, air-conditioning cools the master cabin in the starboard hull in hot climates. The bulkheads are weight-saving Nida-Core FRP panels glassed into the hull and deck. All of the furniture bulkheads, doors, and cabinetry are weight-saving Nida-Core panels, and joiner work is Brazilian hardwood.

The master cabin has a queen size, high quality Tempur-Pedic mattress that has always lived inside a waterproof, dust-mite proof cover. There is plenty of air and ventilation with a hatch over each pillow, an opening port and two fans at the foot of the bunk, an additional outboard opening port and bookshelves on both sides for portable fans if it's rainy. There is ample stowage inboard and below the bunk. Outboard there is a two-shelf unit with sliding doors and a deep locker with multiple shelves for clothes. The bottom level contains the air-conditioning unit and there is still space around it to tuck flexible items. The air-conditioning is used only with shorepower in hot places. There is a duct vent in the master cabin as well as a vent over the starboard office.

The master head is spacious with a high-quality Kenmore brand washing machine. The shower is wide with a rack for shampoos and soaps. A hand sprayer reaches into the shower too. The bronze Groco Model K marine toilet includes a separate bidet function. There is a round, 10-inch wide by 5-inch-deep sink bowl with a mixer faucet and a separate soap dispenser. Above the sink is a mirrored medicine cabinet. Below the sink is a storage area.

The starboard office contains the Iridium Go! Box with wire connection to the external antenna. There is a combination Ham/SSB radio: an Icom 706MKIIG with an automatic antenna tuner and a Pactor Modem. The radio has been programmed with the long distance, blue water cruiser in mind by U. S. -based radio expert Gordon West. The Pactor modem allows you to send and receive emails and request and receive grib files and weather reports at sea over the radio connected to a service provider such as SailMail. These days the Pactor modem and radio act as a back-up to the Iridium Go! Satellite system. The owners use both SailMail and PredictWind while at sea. A shelf above the radio and a shelf to the left of the desk provide plenty of stowage. The air conditioning system vent overhead makes this a cool place to work while plugged into the dock.

This compartment is dedicated to machinery (Hurricane Heater, Spectra Watermaker, Screecher stowage, battery bank #2, and12-volt electrical connection box). The space features two crash bulkheads--the forward-most is 12" aft of the bow, and runs from the deck to the forefoot. The second crash bulkhead, six feet back from the bow, is watertight to about four feet above the WL. The cabin sole is also sealed and watertight, except for a small sump with a bilge pump, and the aft bulkhead of the... (website is word limited.. Pleae read full description attached!

Sail Inventory
Tom is a sailmaker of 15 years standing, and on the Dolphin project he worked with North Sails as a "beta tester" to develop performance catamaran sails for passagemaking.
OCEAN's sail plan is aimed at efficient sailing for a doublehanded crew, which is why, rather than the Dolphin's standard 150% genoa, he opted for a more efficient, more versatile working jib (97% overlap) with a self-tacking boom.
When reaching, they use a 6:1 Harken block and tackle to vang the boom down to deck padeyes to control leech twist.
For winds under 10 knots while reaching or broad reaching, they unroll the Screecher (Code 0).
