S/V My Way is a 1987 Catalac 8M for sale by owner. Here is a really unique boat that has been well cared for and will surely be one of the most enjoyable purchases.
The Catalac 8M is a pocket cruising catamaran which has a solid reputation for quality, strength and durability. Many of the boats found in North America today, were sailed there from Great Britain.
Although classified as a pocket cruiser, the 8M was designed with blue water sailing in mind. The 70 amps of charging and 70 gallons of stock water tanks in the Catalac 8M and 9M make even these smaller boats terrific coastal cruisers.
Chuck Kanter calls Catalac one of the catamaran brands that live on through the decades. The Catalac 8M is masthead rigged with a relatively short, but thick mast. As with all boats in the Catalac production lineup, this contributes to a stable boat with a low center of effort. No Catalac has ever been known to fly a hull under any circumstances.
My Way, this matterhorn white, classic catamaran, has been the light of our lives for our family while sailing around Turkey. The boat is located in Bodrum, Turkey in a safe marina slip. I am the second owner of this boat but the first owner was an engineer who kept extremely good care of the boat. When we bought the boat we added many upgrades inside and out. As you can see by the pictures, it is in great condition and ready to go anywhere in the world.
My Way’s hull is constructed with a solid fiberglass hulls. Catalac 8Ms are quality boats which were built like battleships. She floats on a single pivoting Yanmar 2GM engine that allows for amazing maneuverability. We installed new batteries last year.
