Custom Built Micro Cruising Catamaran, 2005

  • (Catnip)
  • Newcastle, Maine, $12,900

    Master craftsman designed and built (he's built several!) with one year construction time, Catnip was built by a master cabinet maker for his personal sailboat, selling to us in 2010, using beautiful mahogany wood on the interior, the attention to detail is incredible. Aft sugar scoops with steps. Front mini tramp for 1 adult or 2 children that is very comfy and cool to be on while sailing or at anchor. Catnip draws attention where ever we go and we are often stopped and asked about her. This boat looks better that a factory built boat. This coastal cruiser performs extremely well. We are reluctant to sell, but our family of three has outgrown this boat. We are looking for a larger multi hull.
