S/V Friends Forever is a 55 foot, composite construction catamaran built in 2016 in Capetown, South Africa. DH550 is rated one of the most impressive, long distance performance cruising catamarans available globally. Developed by Naval Architect Dudley Dix and Philip Harvey of ‘Harvey Yachts’ fame; the DH550 is an innovative design reflecting the best of current trends in multihull thinking.
The DH550 is a remarkably designed craft with inherent ability to make fast comfortable passages. The powerful rig can easily be handled by a short-handed crew thanks to the ingenious forward cockpit layout. This 55 foot catamaran for sale by owner, is a superbly designed vessel for long-haul cruising.
With her 3 double cabin layout (Owners version), air con, heating, Garmin navigation equipment, full safety equipment and washing machine, she really is ready to go.
The boat has been very carefully and lovingly built for long term cruising, We sailed the boat from Cape Town to the Caribbean and then from St Martin to St. Tropez and then to Leros in 2017. The boat took this very easily in her stride, some friends thought we were racing across the ocean! I can assure anyone who asks that she is a serious cruising vessel for someone looking to go wherever they want to.
