S/V Swish is a 1996 Mayotte 47 catamaran for sale by owner. The Mayotte 47 is the precursor to the Voyage 50 as Voyage Yachts bought Mayotte around 1996. Overall identical except the Voyage has extended Sugar Scoops.

She is a comfortable, good looking catamaran with an outstanding galley up and main salon, large well protected cockpit, and four en-suite, Queen sized berths with an additional single captains berth. Swish has been lived aboard and well cared for with a few owner captained crew charters during the past seven years we have owned her. She is ready for some lucky people to take her anywhere in the world. There are 4 queen cabins with heads and one single cabin in the starboard hull. Very large U shaped galley adjacent to the large main salon.

All Mayotte Cats are CE Certified and widely acknowledged for their quality, performance, ease of handling and low maintenance. She sails to weather very well.

Her interior is comfortable and inviting with 6ft 6 inch headroom and lots of ventilation, and the saloon is spacious and offers great views of the surroundings. This yacht has 4 spacious cabins each with it’s own bath, accommodating up to 8 passengers who can sail and play in comfort. The engines are not in living area but in dedicated separate engine rooms. Her sailplan is sufficient for good performance and well rigged, the Main sail and dinghy, with telescoping boom derrick, are hoisted with an electric winch.

Its extra wide beam offers outstanding stability, safety and exceptional space in the huge saloon, cockpit and decks. The beautiful gourmet upper level galley shares its large panoramic-view windows with the saloon and bar that form an exceptional airy and bright integrated entertainment area.

This yacht has a huge amount of volume allowing for ample storage. The comfortable 4 cabin en-suite layout would be ideal for chartering or extended family cruising. The deck areas are wide, flat and safe with a large forward deck area. The cockpit is massive with plenty of seating and entertaining area.

S/V Swish can be beached or stand on keels without damaging rudders. Swish is currently sailing in the Caribbean   She is in good condition with significant upgrades, including hauled and bottom painted.

She sails well, tacks easily, has better motion then her smaller cousins. Just hauled in September 2022 at R&B boatyard in Spanish Wells where two coats of long lasting bottom paint was professionally applied. Swish is sail-away ready.
