Now is your chance to own a refurbished, wildly popular, rare, boat, and inherit instant membership in a fun, supportive community of Wharram owners.
I have more photos and can supply upon request.
Entire deck repainted (see photos)
2 Hp 4-stroke Honda outboard for the portaboat
Full cockpit enclosure installed (see photos)
All boat lighting interior and exterior is now LED. Boat produces MUCH more energy that it requires to run.
Boat professionally surveyed summer 2013. Only very minor issues found, all already addressed.
New tender is 4 person portaboat. Photo attached.
Comes with signed copy of "Two GIrls Two Catamarans" famous sailing catamaran designer James Wharram.
Renewed Coastwise USCG Vessel Documentation (suitable for charter)
I had intended to charter her out but all my partnerships fell through. I will consider owner-financing the vessel and would also consider a business partnership (charter).
She was built by Navy Captain Rbert Phillips who sailed her from Texas to Panama and back.
Since I have owned the vessel she has made the folowing journeys without incident:
Panama City Beach, FL to Riviera Beach FL
Riviera Beach,FL to Key West, FL
Key West to Clearwater, FL (January 2012)
Vermillion Bay to Galveston Bay, TX.
To Panama and beyond and also all the way up the east coast and back several times.
You might say she has circumnavigated the state of Florida.
She was sailed single-handed from Clearwater, FL to Vermillion Bay by a 70 year old captain.
I have upgraded and/or replaced just about everything on the boat. Much of the work was done by Wharram expert Boatsmith in FLorida. Boat was pulled out of the water, pulled apart and every structural issue that could be found was repaired.
Beams completely repaired, refinished, and relashed
Brand new trampolines
Pod resurfaced and repainted
Bottom job performed
Logos custom designed and applied
Motor sleds custom fabricated to miminmize cavitation
Solar shelf fabricated and installed
Fold out navigation table built
