Start your cruising adventure in the Hawaiian islands with this luxury custom made in Australia Schionning Catamaran. She’s a lightweight composite construction end-grain balsa core with western pine, carbon fiber, west system epoxy. She’s built for speed, comfort, long distance cruising with all the luxuries on board.

The boat was designed by Schionning Designs of Australia. They are proven leaders in multi hull designs and kit development, and are a company that has been serving the Marine Industry with innovative products for over 25 years. They provide plans and material of the highest possible standard with service.  Please see this recent video interview with them.

The Builder was Andy Jensen at Multihulls Western Australia, who built S/V Talisker using strip planked Durakore, end-grain balsa core using carbon fiber and west system epoxy in the hulls. All chain plates are carbon fiber composite.

Powerful shaft drive 55 hp Volvo motors help ensure fast transit times when the wind drops.


Carbon accents offset a very clean interior with two owners’ king size suites in each hull and double queen cabins in the aft of the hulls additional with berths for small people. Two heads with spacious showers and crystal sink bowls with vanity make it easy for two people if necessary. On the bridge deck, a well planned Saloon and Galley make it easy and comfortable to share a meal or entertain. The Galley has double sinks, Miele induction cook top, microwave/convection oven, two refrigerators and a large freezer. There’s lots of storage for supplies and food for long voyages. An ultra quiet genset and fully air conditioned; completely wired with 220v, USB and 110v outlets, and 12v systems throughout. For Entertainment, flat screen tvs are located in all 4 births and the Saloon area. Music can be heard through Bose speakers from the radio entertainment center.


It’s a sloop rig with roller furling jib and screecher. The main sail has lazy jacks and reefing leading to the helm. The 60 foot mast, 17 foot boom, and stainless steel wires were newly installed in March of 2016 prior to sailing the catamaran from Freemantle, Australia to Honolulu, Hawaii. The captain said the catamaran sailed beautifully in all weather conditions with no problems with the rigging.


The main sail is made by UK Halsey; fully batten with two reefing lines running to the helm. Head sail, jib, is a UK Halsey self tackling headsail. Profurling furling system New 2012. The bowsprit has a demountable 2x Profurl for screecher sail. All winches are self tailing, including two electric winches.


The boat was changed from Sail drives to Shaft Drives in 2010, and the engine rooms were sound proofed with isolating bulkheads. The powerful shaft drive 55 hp Volvo diesel engines help ensure fast transit times when the wind drops. Engines are located in the aft, separate engine rooms. Minimal noise and no heat transfers to the main living quarters. The two Volvo engines are strong enough to propel the catamaran at 10 knots with fuel consumption at 2.5 liters per hour per engine.


Electronics are Raymarine E120 chart plotters with radar, depth and speed indicator: one at the helm station and one at the navigation station. The autopilot is located on the helm station fully functional and easy to use, along with a compass and various engine gauges.

Electricity management acdc 220v, 110v, 12 v are located at the navigation station. 6x BP Photovoltaic Solar are located on the tail. 2x sun-saver regulator switch 2x voltage sensitive relays are part of the solar system. The Ebasto 20000 BTU 9.8 kW CPAC 20D REVERSE CYCLE climate control can cool or heat all births and Saloon. The water heater is easily accessible in the storage cabinet located on the starboard head. Opposite hull stores the Schenker Smart 30 liter per hour water maker. Shore power is a 220v with a 110v converter. Both daggar boards are electrically operated. There is an electric anchor windless and 2 self tailing winches; one at the helm and one at the base of the mast. There is a single side band radio and a AIS VHF marine radio.
