S/V Kelpie is a 2000 Voyage 440 catamaran for sale by owner. Kelpie is a 3-cabin, 2-head owners’ layout version. Tender is less then one year old Highfield aluminum hull 11.5′
No expense was spared, I like the best of everything, and you can have it. This Yacht has undergone over $175K in upgrades and service in the past 12 months. It is a fully capable cruising yacht and has been lived on for the past 11 months.
This boat is fully loaded, including whole boat air conditioning, and even a washing machine. She comes equipped with New B&G electronics and radar, AIS, folding props, HVAC, watermaker, washing machine, electric winch, solar panels, 1600Ah lithium batteries, aluminum arch wit solar (1200watts) and dinghy davits, new bottom paint (2022) and more.
This boat is a well-kept world cruiser which has been maintained to the highest standard, with a good selection of important spare parts, and a 62ft ICW friendly mast height. She is an “off the grid” boat; everything runs off the solar and battery system.
Did we say this boat is Fast? She has Great performance – The voyage 440 was the first multihull to win yacht of the year against mono hulls. She sails amazingly. 10+ knots under sail is easily achievable and have seen 14 knots on multiple occasions while being fully loaded with 6 months of provisions and tons of parts etc. Boat will preform even better if you can live a little lighter then me. New sails and the heavily raked main allow for great pointing angles
Intercoastal compliant 62.5′ height
Electronics are the newest available B&G, boat is capable of running both AC units and water heaters off the New Victron 5K Quatro Inverter, 1600AH of Lithium batteries providing comfort at night without firing up the genset.
Hydranet sails and Dynema Running rigging – Only the best for this boat
If your looking for a boat that has really been outfitted for cruising this is your boat. I have not included everything done to the boat on this listing honestly its just so much. All I can say is I have successfully lived on this boat in the out islands of the Bahamas for months and everything needed to do that comfortably is on the boat.
