"Rainbow Chaser was lovingly crafted by a builder who took the time to do it right. Visitors say that they never would have known that she was home built. Rainbow Chaser was very well constructed and has been very well maintained. You have to see her to know."

Rainbow Chaser can sleep a crew of 4 to 8 depending on weather, duration of cruise, crew stature, and their degree of intimacy. Of course, additional crew members and passengers can sleep above deck! Each berth is 35Ē wide.

The cabin in each hull provides:
Complete privacy from the occupants of the other hull
35í bunks located fwd and aft
A 5' 6" standing height
 A stainless steel sink, counter, and seats for 2 or 3 adults
Ample ventilation from
Scuppers and other vents
A screened window
A bug screen for the hatch when open

The starboard cabin contains the Porta Potti
The port cabin accommodates the gas stove, VHF radio, and gimbaled kerosene lamp

 A VHF radio in the port cabin

Yamaha 9.9hp 4-cycle gas outboard
A 5-Watt Solar Panel that reliably keeps the battery fully charged
12 volt power in both cabins

Rainbow Chaser was constructed from fiberglass-covered plywood with a wooden deck that is due for paint

The spacious deck includes:
Trampolines for lounging
A propane barbecue
Two comfortable chairs
A large cooler
A captainís chair

Rainbow Chaser is rigged for main, mizzen, and top and bottom jibs.
5 headsails include a large drifter for use during balmy Chesapeake summers.

Rainbow Chaserís shallow draft enables us to anchor where no cruising monohull would ever dare to venture and we delay the occasional hauling by going aground on a sand bar to scrape and brush her hulls.
Coast Guard documented
The seller is boat's second owner

RAINBOW CHASER is a versatile craft equally suited for:
Blue-water cruising anywhere in the world
Coastal cruising in shallow tributaries such as around the Chesapeake Bay
Day sailing and partying while 10 or more passengers enjoy her ample deck

Wharram-designed boats are so sturdy that they have been likened to ocean-going Land Rovers. This particular boat is so stable that we have easily sailed her with unreefed main and jib in winds gusting to 35 knots during a small craft advisory. Rainbow Chaserís first mate, who usually frightens at the hint of a good wind, feels secure when sailing Rainbow Chaser in 20 or more knots and seas of several feet.

Details are thought to be reliable but are not guaranteed.
