S/V Perry is a Ft. Lauderdale based 1992 Privilege 482 Catamaran For Sale By Owner
This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. Trades will not be considered.

S/V Perry is an 1992 Privilege 482 catamaran for sale by owner. We just completed an 8 year circumnavigation! Many updates. Almost every system new since 2013. Currently in the Caribbean, heading to the Eastern US by June.

You can travel the world and cruise in safety and comfort. This blue water designed, 5-cabin Privilege 482 catamaran is known for strength, stability, and sailing performance, not to mention its luxurious interior. We have lived aboard for the past 10 years–nearly exclusively at anchor–and have continuously updated and improved her (almost every system and piece of equipment is new since 2013, with major ‘refits’ performed 2013 and 2020).

She has everything you need to start your next adventure immediately. This is not a project boat and you can step aboard and push off to wherever you want. Some of the highlights include a custom hard top, solar, water maker, diesel genset, dive compressor, new dinghy and outboard, new sails, and new rigging. There are also 1,000s of dollars in spare parts aboard, from running rigging, to pumps, spare chartplotters, engine spares, even a full transmission. You are ready and able to cruise even the most remote regions of the world!

The Privilege 482 is an updated version of the 48 and at the time was one of the most luxurious catamarans in production. Mast height and sail area had been increased and backstays eliminated resulting in a boat that performs better and is easier to sail.

Entering the boat from the cockpit is the main salon, with two dining tables and sofas. In between is the access to the Crew quarters. Downstairs to port are two guest staterooms; each with double berth, en suite bathroom, A/C and generous storage. Amidship is the galley, fully equipped. Downstairs to starboard are two other guest staterooms, each with double berth, en suite bathroom. Amidship are several lockers for storage, the electrical panel, and the Crew separate shower (currently used as a wet locker/ scuba storage).

The Main Salon is located upstairs amidship and is wide and spacious, with two dining tables covered with varnished cherry wood, and two settees in “L” on both sides. The salon offers accommodations for 10 guests comfortably. The navigation station is to starboard, with table and chair. Salon headroom is 6′ 6″ high.

There are 4 bathrooms, each with a shower, a sink and a toilet. Each bathroom is separate from the Guest cabins with a door. Electrical controls for both head and shower. The water tanks and the water maker allow you to get as much water as necessary for the life aboard. There is also a water heater aboard.

The center nacelle area beyond the salon is the crew quarters and provides yet another sleeping cabin, if desired.

We are currently in the Caribbean, making our way to the Eastern United States where Perry will be available for viewing (projected arrival in June 2022, subject to change). In addition to all the information provided below, feel free to look through our blog at We’ve been quite open about all the good and bad that comes with cruising and boat ownership.
