S/V Andanza is a Norfolk based 2005 Tournier Marine Freydis 46 Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. Trades will not be considered.

S/V Andanza is a 2005 Freydis 46 catamaran for sale by owner. This is hull no.19, built in Soubise (France) by Tournier Marine. Designed by Erik Lerouge. This model has a stellar reputation and this particular unit is extraordinarily equipped, and was very well taken cared of and much improved by us since purchase in 2015. French flag EU VAT paid.

This a 3 cabin 2 bath “Owners’ Version” model. Where one hull is dedicated to an owners suite with a large bath/shower. You will not find a similarly equipped boat with such build quality.

About $100,000 was invested in a 2015/2016 refit, and about 100000$ over the 2015 – 2022 period for continuous improvements. If not all, at least a vast majority of all these cruising life tricks and gear have be implemented to Andanza. We know because we’ve been testing and optimizing for seven years, 25000 miles and 12 countries! Shiny boatshow gelcoat is nice, but what matters is a proven boat. Andanza crossed the Atlantic 5 times both ways. You can trust her to take you safely anywhere.

A truly blue water fast machine, with an emphasis on safety and autonomy, 100% turn key. Spare parts and tools are already stocked labelled and organized : just add your personal preferences for gear and go!

Full detailed and dated maintenance track record since 2015 and unlimited support for seamless transfer of ownership.

EDIT 06/15 : because I am tracking down the engine certification papers in order to import the boat in the US, it is now my understanding that for now I am to mention here that our boat is “NOT FOR SALE TO US RESIDENTS IN US WATERS”. But I’m working on it and I’ll find a way for US buyers willing to import it to be able to do so (which isn’t always necessary depending on what your intentions are, where you want to sail, etc.). Just mentioning this here to be square with the US government requirements. Thanks for your understanding, hopefully I’ll be able to remove this mention soon.

We bought Andanza in 2015 in Martinique. Brought it back to the US and sailed it back to Europe the next year. Since 2019 we lived and cruised aboard, sailing 25000 miles and visited 13 countries.
It's time for us to start a new chapter.
PS : it's an awesome boat;)
