S/V Tantrum is a Antigua based 2005 Fountaine Pajot 43 Belize (Owner's Version) Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!

Tantrum is a true blue water cruising catamaran. The layout is the rare and sought after “Maestro” (owner’s version) which greatly enhances the interior space. The master suite utilises the entire starboard hull, incorporating a generous head and shower room, while the port hull can comfortably accommodate 2 couples in 2 double cabins with a separate head / shower room.

In addition to being luxurious, Tantrum is also fast and seaworthy. Her streamlined profile, high bridge deck clearance and large sail area make her a joy to sail, and she is equipped with a wardrobe of the highest quality sails thanks to her previous owner’s family sailmaking business! Her mainsail, genoa, code zero and gennaker were all new in 2017 and are in excellent condition.

This off-the-grid boat is well equipped for extended time in remote areas and includes, solar, water maker, portable generator, large separate fridge and freezer, fast tender and outboard, heavy duty ground tackle, radar, AIS, MOB alarm system, cockpit enclosures, shade sail, folding bicycles, surfboards and plenty of storage. Tantrum has many extras and is a true turn key boat.

This catamaran is actively being cruised throughout the Caribbean and its owners have taken great care to ensure the boat remains in excellent condition. The current owner can deliver her anywhere between Florida and Trinidad and is happy to spend a couple of days carrying out a detailed handover.
