Broker's Comments

This version of the ever popular Catalac 9m has been well cared for and is ready for the water. You'll find her spacious with plenty of storage and fully equipped for her crew of up to seven adventure seeking sailors or for a fun-loving family.
The Catalac 9m's reputation is a well deserved one of being a capable and reliable off-shore cruiser. Similar boats have undertaken passages from the UK to the Mediterranean. Catalacs were much sought-after in their day and are extremely popular today. If you are looking for a safe, stable, and spacious boat then consider the many benefits of a catamaran. Their stability and reluctance to heel in strong winds coupled with plenty of space for their length make them a popular choice for any sailor and especially so for a family. This boat's twin engines make maneuvering under power a simple task. Your mono-hull skippers will be envious of your skills as you come in alongside or pick up a mooring. Come take a look, you will not be disappointed.
