S/V IMPROBABILITY is a 1998 DEAN 440 catamaran, for sale by broker.

If you were to walk down a dock full of large catamarans, the Dean would stand out with its overly raked mast and unique aerodynamic styling hull shape. Beautifully fitted out in high gloss cherry throughout she oozes comfort and warmth. 4 cabins with in-suites and bathrooms a plenty ensure comfort at sea is a given. With a very well thought out large aft deck she is comfortable for entertaining or on the high seas.

A well-loved and expertly maintained Dean. She has completed several voyages across the Atlantic and cruised the Caribbean down to South America. Over the years she has completed at least 14 round trip ICW voyages from Southern New England to the Florida Keys including offshore passages with Bahamas cruising. Being full time liveaboards space is a must and this Dean answers the bill with hanging lockers and cabinets at every turn.

The Dean 440 is perfect for the live aboard couple or family who want great sailing performance combined with the comforts of a home afloat and a venue for entertaining. She is an exceptionally strong and well-built boat designed for tough South African sea conditions. Design elements include a raked rig designed to increase lift, asymmetrical hulls and high bridgedeck clearance to minimize pounding. High freeboard and ultra modern curved lines. The decks are large and uncluttered and the cockpit is vast and comfortably accommodates 10 -12 guests.
