This unusual catamaran has been safely sailed for many ocean miles, has been a liveaboard, and has given great pleasure to her past owners who have each owned her for a long time. She would suit a couple or a family looking for a more minimalistic sailing oriented lifestyle. Because of the outboard motors and open bridge deck, she will not suit everyone, but those who can see her potential would not be disappointed.
As you will see from her extensive and impressive inventory, she has been designed to go places!
She is in commission, afloat and in an area where skilled labour is cheap, for fitting out, ready for her next adventure. This is a lot of boat for the money and offers good circumnavigation for a limited budget.
