Minuet is a Charleston, SC based 2000 PDQ Capella 36 Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!

S/V Minuet has been our home for the last 5 years and has brought us to the far reaches of the Eastern and Western Caribbean. From Grenada to the East Coast of the US then down to Panama and through the San Blas islands and back. With a draft of 2”10” you can get into places in the Bahamas most others can’t. This 2000 PDQ Capella 36 is perfectly suited for a couple to sail these waters comfortably and safely. Easily single handed with all lines led back to the cockpit, Harken electric winch and secondary windlass controls at the helm.

Two equal staterooms with plenty of storage throughout the boat. The head and shower stall are one piece for easy cleaning. The galley has dual sinks, a Force 10 oven with two burner range, microwave and vertical refrigerator for easy access. An Engle chest freezer is located in the cockpit and a Magma grill on the aft deck. The salon seats six for dining and conversation and there is a Vizio flat screen for entertainment as well as a Kenwood/Bose sound system.

The cockpit is spacious with pilot and co-pilot seats and an aft bench seat. The engines are in pods and retract out of the water for no drag when under sail. A Strataglass 3/4 enclosure keeps you dry in foul weather. Dinghy davits with 3/1 block and tackle sit on the stern.

With 550 watts of solar and 200 watts of wind power feeding a 460 amp battery bank the generator is used sparingly mostly to make water with the Cruise RO 30 gallon per hour water maker. While there is a CruisAir 16000 BTU air conditioner it is rarely needed while anchored with a total of 8 hatches, 4 ports and 4 port lights for ventilation. All are covered with Sunbrella to keep the interior cool.

The bow of the boat has two large lockers and one small locker. A Rocna 20kg anchor with 200’ of 5/16” G4 chain sits on an anchor roller on the starboard side with a Lewmar windlass to deploy and retrieve it. Foot switches right there or the windlass can also be controlled from the helm. A Delta 33lb sits on an anchor roller on the port side with ample chain and rode. There is also a Fortress anchor in the locker as a spare of kedge.


Brand new 9.9 Yamaha High Thrust engines (2hrs) with 5 year transferable warranty Yamaha 9.9 four stroke dinghy engine (all three engines use common spare parts) Racor fuel filter water separators (one for each engine & one for generator) Edson outboard mount on aft deck for dinghy engine.
