****Update on her itinerary - she is just crossing Atlantic on her way to Martinique**** contact us if you would like us to schedule you a viewing***
We are proud to present you ULTIMATE STATE OF ART large performance cruiser catamaran Wild Cat 65 designed by world famous Eric LeRouge.
She represents everything one bluewater performance catamaran should be! That were my first thoughts when I saw her owner's photos..
****UPDATED WITH BROKERS EXPERIENCE:
I have spent three wonderful days with my little family onboard this great catamaran and after contemplating everything I have seen, I would give this cat a new name - SMART.
Sophisticated solutions are found everywhere and even when the sailing comes first like with every Eric Lerouge's design so far, the size and fantastic open spaces all around the yacht are just so awesome that you will never want to step on land anymore. Cockpit and saloon are connected with two large sliding doors (port and starboard) between is just phenomenal helm seat for two. That helm position is absolutely a must see. Sitting at the cockpit you have all controls there, while you can easily talk to someone down in galley (full size pro galley located in mid starboard hull ), office (in the mid section of port hull), or just anyone in the saloon or cockpit, of course. You will never be alone at the helm while at the same time, you can choose to separate from everyone. Sweet-spot indeed!
Cockpit is huge - table takes 10-12 people for dinner if necessary while you can 10-15 more people on the settee without any effort. Large table in saloon offers about the same space and when you open both doors, you get one almost interrupted large space which is just lovely to live in. With helm as the center place, as it should be.
Performance with carbon rotating wing-mast was just exhilarating. We were out to dry the main and jib after the washing so we didn't use asym. spinnaker or code0 , but the boat was sailing constantly above 9 knots, close to 10 on winds between 13-15 knots. If we have had an opportunity to fly other two sails, we would simply sail her windspeed without any effort. All sail setup is so well done, that you never need more than two persons.
It can be pure couple's cruising sailing boat and you can circumnavigate the world or join the regattas. It can be a charter boat since she offers accommodation for 12 guests and up to 4 crew (although 2 is enough). This boat will meet everyone's expectations.
Build quality and materials used are superb, light, robust..Everyone who knows what Eric Lerouge's boats represent will understand that we are talking about serious sailing machine here.
Not only that, but the owner had used her only for 2-3 months each year due to the nature of weather on Baltic, so you are looking at boat in VERY good condition! Just recently she received completely new premium air condition units since the owner had taken her to her first crossing to Caribbean (in Baltic she didn't need any).
Owner is one of the most proficient cat owners I have ever met and, completely devoted to his boat. He just notified me that she just completed with her regular service and antifouling and splashed the water, getting ready for crossing the Atlantic to Caribbean for second time again.
