is bermudan ketch rigged with hollow Sitka Spruce masts. The
forestays are 1×19 stainless steel. All running rigging is by Marlow.
Each hull consists of 5 cabins with 4 watertight bulkheads. The
forward cabin in each hull is a single berth/sail storage cabin,
accessible from the deck hatch; followed by a double berth cabin
accessible from the deck hatch and from the main cabin. The central
cabin has full standing headroom (for 6′ 4” person!) with the
galley and dinette in the port hull and the chart table, work bench
and seating in the starboard hull. Aft of the central cabin is a
double berth cabin accessible from the deck hatch and main cabin. The
aft cabin in the port hull has a shower and new porta loo and the sea
loo ( Blake’s of Gosport, with bronze pumps and ceramic bowl) is in
the starboard hull.
ocean-going catamaran. It has been to the Canary Islands (with no
engine) and made speeds up to 18 knots. This is a proven world
cruising boat currently near the end of a complete restoration. It is
currently set up with the port hull having a very large double berth,
with new covered foam and with storage underneath and in a
compartment at the bow end. Leading to a dining area (folding table)
that seats four (new foam covered). This goes into the gallery which
has a double gas burner stove, sink and lots of storage (cutlery and
pots and pans included) with an underfloor 250 litre flexible water
tank. Then through a bulkhead to the big after cabin which can be a
double berth but is currently set up as food and misc storage. It’s
got a small fridge in it actually.
a big 19kg gas bottle for the galley stove plumbed in and secured on
deck on the back of the main port cabin. There’s a spare bottle to go
on the starboard side too. The mounting bracket is made, just needs
starboard hull has a double berth at the rear, with new covered foam
and with big storage below and in a compartment at the stern. This
cabin goes through to a large saloon with comfortable seating for
four. there one side then as a workbench with additional sink
opposite that is a big chart table and the instruments these are NASA
navtex and NASA AIS NASA wind NASA echo and a Standard Horizon 1700
DSC VHF, the front cabin is open for miscellaneous storage but can
have boards put in and be a large double berth with storage
double berths have an easily moved, canvas light deflector false
ceiling. Helps keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
There is a hatch above. Both berths have new foam, covered by tough
nylon. They are divided into four cushions for easy handling,
coloured red and yellow. Beneath them is de-luxe anti condensation
doghouse has wheel steering and adjacent c-map Standard Horizon chart
plotter and NASA wind repeater, NASA close hauled indicator and NASA
echos sounder repeater plus the Raytheon autopilot display and
control. The port hull also has a NASA wind repeater and the Standard
Horizon chart plotter can plug in there too (for the anchor watch
alarm when you are sleeping). There is a masthead NASA tri colour and
all round white and navigation lights on the doghouse. There’s a VHF
aerial atop both the masts, the main is connected to the VHF and the
mizzen for the AIS (the idea is, that this can be easily unplugged to
work as an emergency VHF aerial). The chart plotter, VHF, wind and
navtex are all operational. The AIS is currently disconnected. There
is an extra VHF repeater/remote station to operate in the dog house
which hasn’t been connected yet. The wind Repeater in the port hull
is operational but the doghouse wind repeaters are not installed yet
and nor is the echo sounder repeater.
are two service batteries and two engine starter batteries in lockers
in the doghouse and there’s a shore power hook-up (with a wired in
smart charger) and the shore power feeds has two double 240v sockets
with double usb sockets in each hull.
wheel has been amended to accommodate the new Raytheon P70s Pilot
self-steering which hasn’t been fully installed yet but it’s all
there, and it will allow the boat to be sailed to a compass course,
or by using the wind direction (NEMA interface with the NASA wind).
a new huge flexible solar panel that’s ready to go on top of the
doghouse there is also a new Rutland 316 wind generator to go on a
small mast on the stern of the port hull.

than a giant net in the space between the hull on the stern behind
doghouse, on the starboard side is a huge aluminium (scaffold tube)
ladder/platform that is easily lowered for beach access or for easy
man overboard recovery. It’s also wide enough to put an inflatable
tender on, (when sailing, with it raised, it’d be easy to have the
tender tethered to this).
the middle of this area, underneath the mizzen boom, is an almost
complete new aluminium (scaffold tube) ladder/platform for easy
working there. It includes a rack to take the old Topaz sailing
dinghy (easily demounted, two part mast) that is complete and
included in the sale.
port aft cabin has a new chemical toilet and shower tray (we use a
solar shower) with a pump. It also stores a selection of large
fenders in it.
Starboard aft cabin has a traditional sea toilet ( Blake’s of
Gosport, with bronze pumps and ceramic bowl) and is currently used
for miscellaneous storage.
forward starboard cabin is currently a sail locker for the large
selection of sails including a brand new mizzen sail.
port forward cabin has a huge amount of spare ropes and netting a
couple of body boards, room for an inflatable tender (and we store
two folding bikes and two inflatable SUP’s which aren’t included in
the sale in there).
engine is just being fitted, it’s a 25 horsepower Tohatsu 4-stroke
injection long shaft but has a central mounting pod it lifts up into
(with trailer winch), it has new remote control, and rev counter, to
go in the doghouse (where the starter batteries are, it has an
alternator and will charge that bank). There are two new big fuel
has a big 45Lb CQR near the bow with least 50m of 10mm anchor chain,
there’s an arrangement to bring the line up so it pulls from the
middle of the hulls, rather than straight down from the mast, so it
doesn’t foul the hulls. There’s a big manual windlass as well.
There’s also kedge Danforth mounted on a custom wood fitting on a
starboard stern hull. Lots of other anchor line is on-board.
are 12-volt LED lights and electrics with USB plugs plug-in points
all round with fused switchboards in each hull and the doghouse.

she was completed and launched, since 2016 where the rebuild has been
crane in yard is not big enough to launch her. The plan is to get a
low loader lorry to reverse under her, and jack her onto the lorries
platform (or use the lorries air suspension to lift her). Then drive
it a few hundred yards to the slip, at low water, and leave it there
for the tide to float off.
injury (severe hernia) has now made this project too much to finish
and hence she’s up for sale she’s been Joton antifouled (there’s
enough there for another two coats at least). The mizzen has been re
rigged and there’s stainless steel wires to re-rig the main as well.

has to be seen to be believed, but there’s the rub, she’s “stuck”
in Ynyslas with COVID restrictions. I wish I’d been locked down
there and able to complete her! I don’t know how you’d view her or
whatever but if you’re interested please get in touch. I have lots of
photos from her early life, not so many with the modifications on,
but just ask.
priced to sell, I’ve not put her in at 40,000 ready to give a
reduction to 35,000. it’s £35,000, no offers please. Contact me, email@example.com for some photographs and video I have, not terribly recent, but the best i can do.
reasonable yard fees and a great location from which to explore Wales
from. Right by Snowdonia, we’ve enjoyed it more than a caravan. There
are lovely beaches and swimming as well as fun in the sailing dinghy.
Hinterlands (Netflix crime drama) was filmed in the area.
