This catamaran owner requires financial settlement only. No trades.
This seller is open to offers via CatamaranSite escrow.

S/V Iko Iko is a Wharram Tiki 38 Catamaran, for sale by owner. She was built in Quebec in 2009 and has had many upgrades in each of the past four years. She has been to Cuba, the Bahamas and up and down the US Atlantic coast. Iko Iko has just completed a 3 month cruise around the Bahamas. She will be hauled out in Fort Pierce, FL for hurricane season on May 28’th and available for inspection and sale at that time. 

Iko Iko is a gaff-rigged schooner with a covered wheelhouse, easily handled by a couple and a real pleasure to sail. Her hulls, decks and bulkheads are cold-molded with Okume plywood, West system epoxy and fiberglass. Raised hatches in all four cabins provide a minimum of 5’10” standing height. A sturdy bowsprit was added to support a roller furler that handles the foresail. These improvements are the only modifications from the original plans.

Two small outboard motors move her at 5 knots when there is no wind and burn just one gallon per hour. She has a 10′ hard-bottom, inflatable dinghy with a 6 hp motor that folds up and stows on deck or in the pilot house when not in use. The owners have made numerous improvements each of the past four years. See the equipment list for recent upgrades.

She has a double berth and head to starboard; a single berth in each hull forward; and the port side galley converts into another double berth.

Iko Iko is a great boat from which to explore the Bahamas or Western Caribbean. For more adventurous sailors, Tiki 38’s have crossed the Atlantic and Pacific. This one is in good condition and ready to sail away.  She is fully stocked with tools and charts of the eastern US and NW Caribbean and ready to go wherever you want to sail.
