MOONGATE sleeps 6-8 persons in 4 cabins. The port and starboard hulls are mirror images of each other. There is also a bridgedeck center cabin with a separate entrance. The interior cushions in the main cabin and the hull cabins have been replaced and recovered in 2001with Sunbrella fabric. Custom curtains in the main cabin have UV resistant lining. The bunks all have custom fitted sheets.

All lockers and interior surfaces have been painted or refinished and varnished in 2001. All windows were replaced in 2000 with 1/4" or 3/8" Lexan bedded in GE recommended caulking and attached with new aluminum barrel bolts.

Entry to each hull is from the cockpit through an athwart ship facing sliding companionway hatch. Each hull has a small double (or large single) forward with a large opening hatch.

Next aft is a private head compartment with a manual toilet, a sink and a shower sump. There is a 26-gallon holding tank in the forward port hull with a Par macerator pump. The aft section of each hull has a large double berth.

Headroom is about 5' 10". Under each bunk is a storage space and a watertight flotation compartment. Forward of the forward bunks is additional storage. Each of the cabins has hanging lockers, shelves, and Hella fans.

Entry to the main cabin is from the cockpit through and aft-facing doorway. Headroom in the galley is about 5' 10". The galley is equipped with a Regal LPG two-burner range/oven (new 1998) and a thermostatically controlled, 3 cubic foot DE-390D-F Norcold refrigerator with freezer compartment. The refrigerator draws 3.5 amps/hour and experience has shown that at its coldest setting in 80-degree temperatures the daily draw is about 35 amps. There is a dining table with folding leaf and seating for up to 8 people. Storage in the main cabin consists of 11 cubic foot lockers behind the settee on each side of the cabin and a separate 36 cubic foot locker.

Water tankage consists of a 26-gallon bladder that feeds a 13-gallon bladder. Under the starboard side bunk, there is a PUR Power Survivor 80-II that produces 3.5 gallons/hour and draws 8 amps/hour. It was serviced by PUR in 2001.

The boat was completely rewired by the current owner in 1997. Anchor marine grade #12 wire was used throughout. A Heart 1000-watt Freedom 10 inverter/charger and Heart circuit breaker panel (3 AC, 15 DC) were added. The system is monitored by a Heart Link 2000. The breaker panel and Link 2000 are very accessible being installed in a hinged drop down panel in the main cabin. There is one GFI AC outlet and two DC outlets in the main cabin. Each cabin in the hulls has its own DC outlet.

The cracking battery was replaced in 2000 with a West Marine Sea Volt 515 starting battery. The house batteries were replaced in 2000 with two West Marine Dual purpose 12-volt batteries. In total the house batteries have 170 amp hours. While these amp hours may seem to be low, the owner has found them to be adequate for the power requirements of MOONGATE.

Battery charging is by means of two Air Marine 403 wind generators and a 120-watt solar panel mounted on the bimini. The wind generators are mounted on 9' poles that are attached to the aft rails using rubber vibration isolators. The Honda outboard provides 10 amps of charging that can be directed to the cranking battery or the house batteries or both using a "make-or-break" battery switch. Additional charging is available from a lightweight (20-lb.) 350-watt Honda generator stored in one of the cockpit lockers.

Lighting includes navigation lights, steaming light (new 1997), low power (0.4 amp) halogen cabin lights (new 1997), and a low power (0.1 amp) Davis anchor light.

MOONGATE is powered by a new (2000) 25 hp Honda 4-stroke, extra long shaft, electric start outboard. The warranty expires in May of 2002. A new aluminum "sled" was added in 2000. When not in use, the sled and engine can be raised clear of the water using a block and tackle. The engine is attached to pulleys that allow it to be turned independently of the rudders. Turning the engine cuts the turning radius at least in half and allows for easy maneuverability in tight quarters. At 2/3's throttle, MOONGATE cruises at 7knots and burns about 1 gallon/hour. Her top speed under power is 8knots.

Design and Construction:
Hulls and deck are fiberglass. The above waterline areas of the hulls are Divinycell. The Edel 35 has low aspect keels for resistance to leeway. She has a large trampoline foredeck and an aft cockpit with seating for 6 persons. Access to the bow is very secure on the walkways between the hulls and the center cabin. The rudders are skeg hung and tiller operated with double tiller extensions. The hulls and decks are finished in gelcoat and are white. She was bottom painted in 2001 after the application of an E-Bond barrier coat.

Ventilation is supplied by a foredeck hatch, companionway hatch and opening aft cabin port and by an overhead hatch and companionway door in the center cabin. There are two cockpit seat lockers. The current owner added a full Sunbrella bimini in 2000 that can be extended to cover the full cockpit while not sailing. The extension also serves as a rain catch. Phifertex screens on the sides and back can be unrolled for shade and privacy. Running rigging is controlled by 2 #30 Barbarossa self-tailing winches and 1 #30 Lewmar self-tailing winch. There is a manual boom vang and a mainsheet traveler. There are 2 bow pulpits with rails and side stanchions with lifelines. The lifelines were replaced in 2001. There is a folding teak cockpit table. Also included are dock lines, fenders, swim ladder, and teak flagstaff.

Ground tackle consists of a 22lb. Simpson-Lawrence Delta Fast-Set anchor with fifty feet of stainless steel 1/2" chain and 200 feet of 5/8" 200 feet of 1/2" rope. Storage for each is in individual lockers aft of the trampoline. Additional anchors include a 15 lb. Fortress FX-23 and a smaller 10 lb. Danforth "lunch hook". Excluding the "lunch hook", all anchors are properly sized for a 35 foot boat.

MOONGATE is fractional sloop rigged with a fixed, deck-stepped aluminum mast and boom. Standing rigging is stainless steel. The previous owner replaced one upper shroud and turnbuckle and both head stay bridles in 1997. She has rope halyards. The current owner changed the main halyard to run through a block that attaches to the headboard giving the halyard two-to-one purchase. This allows the full batten main to be raised without the aid of a winch other than to tension the sail. A new sail cover was added in 2001. The sail inventory consists of a new (1997) North fathead sail with 6 battens and 3 reef points, a jib (re-cut in 1996) and a spinnaker. The jib is flown from a Profurl roller furling system.

Electric bilge pumps in each keel,
Life jackets - 2 x manual inflating PDF's and safety harnesses,
3 x Type II PDF's,
ABC fire extinguisher in main cabin,
Flares - smoke, parachute and pistol.

MOONGATE was designed and built by Edel in France. She was shipped to St. Martin when new and was sailed throughout the Caribbean. The current owner purchased her in St. Thomas, USVI in the fall of 1997 and sailed her with a friend to Cape Canaveral. She is an extremely seaworthy boat: during the trip to Florida, she was caught in a non-tropical depression and sailed to windward under a triple-reefed main in 65 knot winds and 30 foot seas. She handled the weather far better than did the crew! In Cape Canaveral, the current owner converted for from a weekend boat to a cruising boat. She has better than average performance. Due to its wide beam, this boat can carry full sail to 20 knots true. Upwind speed in 15 knots true and average sea conditions varies between 7.5 and 9.5 knots with tacking angle about 95 degrees. The best-recorded speed was 15 knots on a beam reach. The boat is registered in Delaware under a Delaware company. If desired the company could be transferred to the new owner. MOONGATE is an attractive and extremely functional cruising cat with a very livable interior for a family of five. She is for sale because the owners are returning to land after 5 years of fulltime live aboard cruising.
