SV Abeona is a Boston, MA based 2012 Catana 42 Carbon Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!

Sadly, we are looking for new owners for our beloved SV Abeona, a 2012 Catana 42 Carbon currently cruising the East Coast of the USA. She has served us well and has lived up to Catana’s reputation for incredible sailing performance and live-aboard comfort over the 3000nm we have cruised her in the Caribbean and up to Maine. During that time, we have extensively fine-tuned and upgraded her and she is fully out-fitted for long range cruising. New equipment includes new engines, sales, solar system, house bank / electrical controls, exterior cushions, mattresses and covers, AIS, all LED lighting, freezer, Mantus anchor, aluminum double-floored tender w/ 15hp motor, live-aboard amenities/gear, and much more. This is the four-cabin/2-head version so plenty of room for families and/or guests.

In case you like to actually sail, the Catana 42 Carbon is the only production performance cruising catamaran under 45 feet bult in the last decade and was named the Best Multihull under 50ft by Cruising World.  This boat out-sails anything in the class and lives up to the hype in terms of performance while also being a comfortable home at anchor.  She has been extensively retrofitted, upgraded, and fine-tuned for long-range cruising and the lucky new owners will be purchasing a “cruise-ready” catamaran to sail away on.

The unique layout creates a wide and comfortable cockpit that is much more spacious and comfortable than other boats this size and the views underneath a structural bimini are expansive.  The seamless transition between cockpit and comfortable salon/galley creates an “open floor plan” that lets the overall living space feel far larger than a 42ft boat should.   This is the four berths and two head layout that accommodates growing families, guests, and “stuff” with ease.  Storage space takes advantage of the raised berths and large lazarettes and provides a nearly limitless amount of storage for provisions and gear.

Over the last 15 months of cruising we have continuously restored, maintained and fine-tuned this vessel and she is ready to fulfill your cruising dreams!
