Re: questions about cats

What is your specific question? We have a 42' catamaran for sale that is quite capable of ocean crossing. 35' tends to be a bit on the small side for newer catamaran designs, but the older Prouts in this range have a good reputation. Smaller one-offs like Wharrams also. By 38', they are definitely getting capable of ocean crossing.

Cool Re: questions about cats

Well Jon, I certainly hope so as I am 4400 miles and 6 months into my circumnavigation aboard Bonzai. She is a 2000 Leopard 38 stretched to 40'. These are fantastic era boats from 1999-2003. Hand laid fiberglass that were actually sailed to their deliveries from South Africa. The logs of the delivery captains were epic to the point of them loving to sail these cats so much, they would race back to the factory to pick up another. That is after an ocean crossing. I will sell you my eye teeth before I sell you this boat. Good luck.
