Kelsall Suncat 40 Catamaran, 1995

This beautifully executed and updated custom catamaran offers a blend of space, speed, and ease of operation rarely found on modern production cats. The elegant simplicity of her systems combined with a comfortable cruising interior and proven oceangoing capabilities will please the buyer who wants to sail in the lightest of airs and enjoy an unencumbered life at sea. Her rotating mast and daggerboards allow her to point with the monohulls to windward, but off the wind she will leave them in her wake with double digit speed. With over 12,000 ocean miles under her hulls, this is a proven performer in turn-key condition.
