S/V Falkor is a San Diego based 1995 Privilege 42 Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. Trades will not be considered.

S/V Falkor is a 1995 Privilege 42 cruising catamaran for sale by owner. This is hull #6 sailing catamaran, identified as Hull Identification Number XCP42241B595, U.S. Coast Guard Documentation No. 1033358.

She was built by Jeantot Marine, in Les Sables d’Olonne, France in 1995. The Privilege 42 replaced the very successful Privilege 39, a popular boat in the bareboat charter trade. She continues the tradition of a luxury craft designed for families and friends or charter work. The new design is much faster than the 39, making her an exciting, yet safe boat to sail.

The larger hulls add three additional feet of length and one additional foot in width, while the interior space has also been enlarged and features 6’5″ headroom in the saloon and 6’4″ in the hulls. The multihull industry was impressed, as both the Privilege 45 and 42 were chosen as ‘Boat of the Year’ in the USA , by Cruising World in 1995 and 1996.

This boat has it all and is ready to take you away! Falkor was originally a four stateroom, four head model; the forward, starboard stateroom and head have been repurposed into a utility room that now houses the genset, watermaker, an Engle AC/DC refrigeration/freezer unit, tools and supplies.

The fin keels of the Privilege 42 were originally layered with Kevlar with the intention of being beached; thus, you could perform much of your hull work without a haul out if you can find the right conditions.

This is a true live-aboard vessel, equipped for a cruising lifestyle – NOT a day sailor! Falkor is ready to cruise to Mexico and beyond. However, it must be said that compared to local real estate prices, this catamaran offers an unparalleled value to a handy, individual, couple or family looking to affordably live in the area and regularly enjoy the greatest views/on-the-water lifestyle possible in San Diego!

Falkor is primed for an electronics overhaul and/or re-powering, but existing systems are in serviceable condition for a competent sailor.

Current Mexico Temporary Import Permit (TIP) will be cancelled at buyer’s request so that the vessel may be registered under a new permit under the buyer’s name.
