If you are looking for a live aboard sailboat to travel the ICW, Florida Keys and Bahamas, then it would be hard to beat this 34ft CATALAC. Much of the above mentioned places have very shoal waters and this boat's 3ft draft makes timing of the tides a non issue. The 48ft mast also allows you to explore the Okeechobee Water Way (OWW).
As a live aboard she has probably as much room as a 40ft mono-hull, and yet you will only pay for 34ft at marinas and the lower charge when visiting the Bahamas. And that since the beam of this boat is 15ft 6in we have never had to pay a surcharge that most overly wide catamarans must pay which allows for dockage ease. Also, just because this boat is great for the ICW, Keys, and Bahamas, don’t think she is weak. She has a solid fiberglass hull with the hull-to-deck joint done right, ¼ SS Bolts every 6inches. There are crush areas in each bow below the waterline and check out the tabbing on the bulkheads. And all ports are tempered glass, not cheap Plexiglas.
Our sailing goals led us to purchase Tschuss and we could not have been happier with her. Now we are ready to move on to bigger things but Tschuss is still ready to sail!

Deck & Hull
- The Simpson/Lawrence Horizon 900GD Electric windlass ('05) is powered from house batteries with the correct gauge wires. Doing this removed the one extra weight and maintenance of a dedicated windlass battery that was located in the anchor locker.
- May 2006 update: Using the house batteries worked great. Most of the time the engine is started first and then there is plenty of power for the windlass. But even when we sail of anchor we've never had a problem.
