S/V Quinuituq is a Port St. Louis Du Rhone, France based 1998 Naval Force Tropic 40 Catamaran For Sale By Owner. Our boat has been loving cared for by three owners.

She is simple to operate under sail and power. She is reliable, well-built and well designed. She has seen the west and east coasts of North America, sailed around the world in 2017 and parts of the Mediterranean since 2018. Also she is a great sailing boat with no bad habits. She has a good bridgedeck height as well.

The boat was especially designed for two owners who know about long-term cruising. Therefore one hull is an owner’s cabin with a double-berth aft, lots of storage space in the center and a Lavac head in the front.

The main saloon and the cockpit are spacious and light filled with almost 360* visibility. The navigation station is quite large with lots of storage and easy access to the cockpit which has 3 lazarettes, 2 in sole compartments, shelving, the electronic displays and 2 compasses. And a swivel table.

Two to three guest beds are in the other hull and the main saloon. Workshop area  in the center of the portside hull with some tools and lots of spares. Quinuituq has a spacious and easy to use galley with lots of storage and a full complement of cooking equipment and tableware. She has sweet and seawater access here as well.
Newly refurbished engines were installed in November 2022 which included new saildrive seals. The main fuel tanks were emptied and cleaned as well.
