Yacht Description

Luxury performance Catamarans Equipped! Ready for long distance voyaging. Vessel and all systems have new meticulously maintained and upgraded to very high standards. This is a turnkey opportunity!

"Following Tides" is a very well appointed and upgraded Switch 51 and quite fast. Yet, with her cutter rig, easily sailed by a couple. Over the past two years she has had several major upgrades. She sails circles around a Catana 471. In fact, during the Transcaraibes De Passion rally two years ago this catamaran won every single leg. On the leg from Puerto Rico to Cuba she finished 6 hours ahead of her closest competitor, an Outremer 53 catamaran. She averaged 16 knots for 12 hours! You might think, well, this is a racing cat. Not so. She is a luxurious high performance cruiser designed for short-handed sailing by Marc Van-Peteghem and Lauriot Prevost who have designed all of the Lagoon catamarans. The Switch is a Lagoon
on steroids. She weighs only 10 tons due to super high-tech construction, and carries dual daggerboards, so she points like a bandit into the wind. A new switch is now an $850,000 catamaran due to the weakness of the dollar against the Euro. Here is a chance to own a fabulous performance cruising cat a substantial discount.
