This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. No trades.
This seller is open to offers via CatamaranSite escrow.

S/V Orion II is a fully equipped, turn key ready, 2007 Catana 471 (hull #86) catamaran, for sale by owner and currently in the Bahamas. She’s a beautifully maintained owner’s version with many recent upgrades including new dinghy, water maker, batteries, solar panels, electronics, windlass and trampoline all bought within the last 2 years.

The Catana 471 is 1999’s Multihull Boat Of The Year by Cruising World Magazine. This model features dual helms aft for maximum sailing feel and control. The bridgedeck is high for wave clearance, and the daggerboards make for a great upwind performance. 

With twin 75HP Yanmar engines and a daggerboard semi performance design, she’s fast and fun to sail. With all lines leading to the cockpit and ability to operate windlass and electric winches from the cockpit or helm, you’re able to single hand with ease. Daggerboards up, draft is 3.5ft making cruising the Bahamas a breeze with all anchorages and cuts available to you. 

There was no expense spared on maintaining and upgrading our family home for the past 2.5 years living aboard full time with 3 young kids and cruising the Western Caribbean and Bahamas. As our sabbatical is coming to an end, it’s time for us to head back to land and someone else to take the helm. Available from April.

Registered in the UK. Not for Sale to US residents while in US Waters.
