Hirondelle Mk II Catamaran, 1977

  • Morgan, New Jersey. $13,800

  • LOA 22’-10”
  • Beam 10’
  • Draft 18”/ 4’
  • Weight 2400 lbs (approx.)
  • 1 dbl berth, 2 quarterberths

    I did significant work on this rare classic English catamaran before bringing her up the ICW from Savannah to the Chesapeake Bay. There we meandered northward exploring coves and inlets that most boats could not enter. When we reached the top of the Bay we headed through the C&D Canal, down the Delaware Bay, and back inside from Cape May to Manasquan Inlet. There we headed outside up to and around Sandy Hook. I and my crew of 1-2 spent three comfortable months on our 1,000+ mile journey.

    There is 5-8” of headroom in both hulls and sitting headroom in the bridgedeck salon (which converts into a double berth). A friend of mine (who is 6’-3”) owns a Tartan 3700. He thought the head in my boat was more comfortable than the one in his. He also liked the dual companionways which he thought prevented traffic jams.
