Due to ongoing health concerns I have reduced the price of "Zen" by 50,00 dollars. "ZENATAOS" (ZEN And The Art Of Sailing) is a 15 metre full cabin sailing catamaran based on Hitchhiker hulls. I have spent a considerable amount of money to completely rebuild "Zen" from the bare hulls up. The hulls are 9mm ply with a 2" x1" stringer every six inches. All epoxied and glassed on the outside. The cabin is polycore and polyester. It encompasses an area approx 5 metres x 4 metres. There is a Queen size bed on the bridgedeck as well as a settee, galley and navstation. Aft in the port hull is a pantry with Waeco upright fridge, central is a 20hp Yanmar diesel with shaft drive, forward is a cabin with Queen size bed. External of the cabin on the port side is a single cabin and rope locker. Aft in the starboard hull is a shower toilet area with macerating toilet, central is a 24 hp Yanmar diesel with shaft drive and forward is a cabin with desk seating and a Queen size bed. Externally is another shower toilet area with separate battery for Auto san toilet with 80litre holding tank and anchor winch. There are ample solar panels and batteries. The rig is basic main with furling headsails to each bow. There are issues with the position of the stays which will be rectified. All rigging is new, There is a front verandah which is floored with meranti and is used as storage at the moment and forward of that is all netting. The sails are in excellent condition. This boat would suit a couple or family. I am single and 65 and disinclined to do more work and would prefer a smaller more easily handled yacht. There is potential here to have a yacht that with a bit of work will provide an economical and safe cruising platform. Please contact me if you have any queries or would like to know more. UPDATE. I have most of the bits and pieces to convert my shaft drive motors to saildrives, including sd20 legs and props.
