Looking thru 7 knots I seen that there isnt any discussions in the multi hull section
so ....... I have delivered different multi hulls over 45000 miles
from Australia , South Africa , France . If any one wants to know more about sailing
multi hulls across oceans then please contact me . I am not connected to any manufacturer,
but have lots of information to share . |

Thanks for your generous offer to share your knowledge.
I am thinking of eventually purchasing a used multihull
but wanted one 32 ft or less. Any suggestions or info
would be greatly appreciated.

What do you think about the Norseman Voyage 430? How about the Yanmar saildrives? Have you sailed these boats? Are the 27 hp engines the right size or would replace them with larger versions?

|Hiya, the only thing I really want to know is if you need crew next time you hit the high seas in a cat.
And what do you think of Wharrams?|

I am in the process of buying an Outremer 55L catamaran from the original owners who bought it
new in France.
I have 3 questions and I hope you can be of help.
1) the boat was built in 2001 and launched May 2002. For estimate values is it considered a
2001 or 2002 boat?
2) the mast was custom cut by factory,about 6-8ft by request from owners to fit under
Florida bridges (65ft, it means the boat is 64ft high from waterline to top of mast.)Originally
it was armed 7/8 but now the main and genoa have the same hight. The factory recalculated the
main and extended the boom to have equal sail area. In case of a future resale on my side will
the boat have less value than a "standard mast" one?
3) the boat demasted last fall and has been refitted. Minimal damage on the hulls. Is is a factor
that could lower the selling value?
4) I still have the option to get the owner not to cut the new mast but to go back to the original
layout. He matains that a shorter mast boat will be a plus in Florida because it can be used in the
intra-coastal water way.
What do you think of all this.
I would really appreciate an answer a.s.a.p as I have to make my decision soon
Thank you for your time
