A custom designed Power Catamaran Yacht built specifically for inland waterway and coastal cruising. The long narrow fiberglass pontoons require very little power to operate at normal waterway trawler speeds of 7 to 8 knots. Powered with twin Cummins diesels and state-of-the-art technology pod drives. Planned for a combination of roomy comfort and fuel efficiency. USCG documented at 116 gross tons therefore can legally carry up to 12 passengers for hire. This vessel would also make a great liveaboard or guesthouse for a waterfront property owner.
The main cabin has 7' headroom throughout thereby creating a feeling of spaciousness. The galley, dining room and living area all have house-like proportions. She has 3 staterooms, each with its own private head and stand-up shower plus a guest head (4th head), all housed within a nautically proportioned 2 level deckhouse having the ship-like pilothouse/penthouse (4th stateroom) on the upper deck. Plus a laundry room and there is a huge sundeck aft of the bridgedeck. This yacht has 1300 square feet of living space under cover plus 1100 square feet of open deck for a total of 2400 square feet!
Standard package for inland cruising. Fathometer transducers are mounted forward inside each hull for keeping centered in narrow channels.
The two Cummins diesels, 120 HP each operating at 85% power (the most efficient diesel engine loading) are connected to commercial Stern-Power azimuth retractable thrusters, pods. (An azimuth thruster is a configuration of marine propellers placed in pods that can be rotated to any horizontal angle (azimuth), making a rudder unnecessary. These give ships better maneuverability than a fixed propeller and rudder system.)This configuration will produce the trawler cruising speeds of 7 to 8 knots and burn only 3 to 3.5 gallons per hour. The 600 gal fuel capacity will produce about a 1200 mile range. Also, the retractable thruster feature prevents marine growth on the props while docked or at anchor and makes clearing a fouled prop while underway a snap - no diving necessary.
There is a 10 kw Westerbeke diesel generator (needed to run the AC and washer and dryer) with solar panels and a wind generator to provide normal house power.
Main deck,1100 sq ft., 01 and foredeck fully enclosed with either bulwarks or stainless steel handrails. No rail on top of pilothouse.
Built by Waterway Cruisers Inc to 99% completion in 2014 but due to an unforeseen change of plans she has remained in the boatyard where she was built. This is a brand new boat that has never been used! Since she has not yet been lived on the new owner will need to supply furniture, household items and bedding as well as final outfitting, (bottom paint, additional house batteries and inverters, deck furniture etc.)
