S/V Kismet is a 2002 Maine Cat 30 Catamaran for sale by owner. She is Hull #40 (HIN#MCP30040F202) and is built with the combination of the highest quality marine materials and hardware, together with advanced building techniques, which produced a lightweight composite assembly that is capable of handling offshore conditions and will remain trouble free for years with a minimum of effort. This has been designed to be handled by solo sailor with all rigging to be accessed from cockpit area. 

The Maine Cat 30 is a simple live aboard cruiser for weekend getaways or the cruise of a lifetime. The Maine Cat 30 is a lightweight, elegant cruising catamaran designed as the ultimate family cruising multihull. Her low profile and aerodynamic styling produce a “slippery” shape easily driven. These boats are in a class by themselves, delivering the promise of real high performance multihull sailing.

The current dagger board is manufactured of Carbon fiber to improve speed.   She has a light helm, points high, and she can achieve double digit speeds. She is a delightful performance cruising catamaran with excellent 360 degree visibility from the huge airy cockpit. All sail and engine controls are led to the cockpit. Her fine entry, buoyant ends, and excellent bridge deck clearance makes for very comfortable sailing.

This Maine Cat has lots of upgrades to appeal to the hardcore sailor and it has the “Cruiser Package” and the popular “sport” hardtop. Along with Eisen glass, Kismet has a full zip in screen for cockpit area. Additionally we have had all brand new cushions and softs goods designed by Kinder Industries .

The master stateroom berth located on the starboard side is 56″ wide and 6′–8″ long with a 4′ overhead above the mattress. Amidships is a counter and dresser with a solid cherry hanging storage cabinet above. Outboard of the dagger board trunk is the hanging locker. The head is huge with a Lavac toilet, 20 gallon holding tank, vanity, sink and shower with pressurized water, hot and cold water. 

The port hull has a good size single berth forward that is 44″ wide and 6 Ft 8 inches long. You’ll find the galley amidships with a double stainless steel sink, 12-volt refrigerator and two New Princess propane burners are included. Aft is a double berth the same size as the master berth, which has the retrofitted diesel engine below.

Kismet is equipped a Yamaha 9.9 4 stroke (installed 09/2020) with power tilt and trim and a Beta Diesel saildrive(portside under bed).The Diesel engine also provides heat when sailing in colder climates or conditions. Plenty of seating for when friends in cockpit or family. Kismet is equipped with Raymarine E80 GPS w/ Radar, AIS250 Receiver, and Simrad Autopilot24 all easily controlled from helm station.  

She has been kept at Hodgdon Yacht Services in Southport Me since 2012. All of the work has been done by the yard, it is wrapped and stored in the winter months and kept on their mooring during summer months. Only used as weekend sailing boat in summer month.
