Rhurst is a catamaran in good condition - it has never been chartered. Kennex built boats from '87 to '97, overbuilt them, and they could not compete, but are well sought after now. She was built in 1994, has sailed once around the world, and is now laying in the Caribbean. Rphurst is equipped and ready for bluewater cruising and liveaboard. Just bring your tooth brush and swim suit. Intended for offshore as well as coastal cruising, she is both seaworthy and fast, ideal for long term cruising. Sailing performance is excellent and easy to control, even when short or single-handed. Below decks, the airy interior, generous headroom, copious storage space and abundant room make her an easy boat to live aboard for extended cruising. I have cruised with her and lived aboard for 20 years, in the Caribbean for more than 10 years with great pleasure. I am selling because I am wanting to start the next chapter of life. Rphurst is now sailing the eastern Caribbean and is ready to go anywhere. I will be willing to sail with you for a week or a month or so to acquaint you with all of the systems. I really hate to let her go. USD($) Price: $145,500 Euro/$160,000 US$ This is not the starting point, so be a serious buyer, I have taken into consideration the age, equipment, size, condition and comparative value and priced for a quick sale, for a turn key purchase. VAT will be due if kept in Europe, sales tax will be due if taken to the states.
