The Mystery Cove 420 is not only a great looking boat, they are a fast and sea kindly sports cruiser with a well thought-out accommodation and cockpit layout. This boat was designed by renowned Australian multihull designer Tony Grainger and custom built to the highest standards. Her current owners have been having a ball cruising both Africa and Europe and crossing oceans. Which is not surprising, as Grainger catamarans have a long record of successful ocean cruising.

This catamaran for sale by owner incudes all necessary gear for self-sustained bluewater cruising. including: She has an all new RIG and SAILS (screecher, main, roller-furling genoa) in 2014! Spinnaker. Engines refitted.

S/V Freebird has returned from two years of cruising from the Mediterranean to the US. We have kept her in the Bahamas for the last 3 yrs since having crossed the Atlantic, spending several months in Miami/Ft Lauderdale to refit and paint the bottom every year. She is well maintained and ready to go now. Just add provisions.

Sailing at 80% of wind speed and with her Bridgedeck clearance of 33.5 inches (no slamming), Grainger catamarans 'rule' down under (Australia), but are rare finds in America. This spacious design, with all its style for which Tony Grainger is renowned, will suit a cruising family looking for catamaran that can sail well and cover sea miles with ease. This Cat is ready to set sail to explore tropical islands and beyond.
