A very spacious, well equipped and well set up cruising cat with lots of recent upgrades and equipment. She has two watermakers and a rain catchment and filtration system that can fill the 200 l S/S water tank, with good drinking water, in an hour in a good downpour, so you are never out of water and she has 600 W of solar power so you are never out of power.
With a bridge deck clearance of 0.9 m and very manageable cutter rig she is easy and comfortable to sail.
A very nice feature for the tropics is a net that can be rigged between the hulls for lazing in the water under the shade of the bridge deck !
