Comments:
This boat was purchased new in 1999 after a 7000-mile break-in/delivery voyage across the Atlantic from the factory in South Africa. It was taken to the Galveston, Texas area, where the owner spent a year very thoroughly debugging it and fitting it out for comfort and long-term cruising. Within a week of the boat's first birthday, the owner and his wife came to the reluctant conclusion that the wife is physically unable to handle the sails of any sailboat large enough to cruise on. Consequently, they desire to sell the boat as soon as possible and buy a motorboat instead, despite the vast amount of time and money spent making this into a perfect cruising catamaran. This is a rare opportunity to save a bundle on a like-new boat that is completely ready to cruise. The present owners have priced the boat to sell quickly, because they really want to buy a motorboat and get back on the water.

As this list of features indicates, no expense has been spared outfitting the boat for comfort and safety. Furthermore, all the equipment is brand new or nearly new, having hardly been used at all except for some day-sailing in Galveston Bay. The boat was just hauled 04/2000 for a complete moisture survey and bottom-paint touch-up.

The hull itself is light and strong, and very elegantly designed. Due to the high strength of quadraxial glass and 3/4" balsa coring, the hull sides are so strong they feel like a solid wall. The whole boat can stand comfortably on its keels while hauled out, or when simply run up on the beach for the night. Sailing performance is excellent due to the light weight and smooth hulls, even with the moderate load of cruising equipment currently on-board. For racing, the load can be quickly reduced by removing half the  house battery bank, and offloading the drogue and some ground tackle; the huge sail area makes this a formidable race boat. Catamarans have no hull speed limit; the present owner has gotten the boat up to 12.5 knots on a beam reach in 25 knots of wind. The speed and the space make this an excellent cruising boat: on her delivery voyage across the Atlantic, 180-200 miles a day was a commonplace.

There are acres of deck space topsides, with wide enough decks to set up lounge chairs. The interior is similarly spacious, with four whole double staterooms, all private, any of which can be assigned to cargo stowage. The big cockpit/setee area amidships lends itself readily to any social occasion.The boat has brand new carpeting and cushion-covers throughout, with lots of spare material for the future.
