Details
Built in the USA by her professional boatbuilder owner to a very high standard that has stood the test of time because Gato presents like she was built recently. A well designed open cockpit with hardtop over and a removable clear screen for spray protection. She has two very spacious cabins in the hulls, each with a queen bed on the bridgedeck and bathroom forward, fully equipped spacious galley aft in port hull, and Nav station aft in the starboard hull. This vessel is professionally wired and has excellent sailing systems. Fitted with 520 watts of solar panels, she is power self sufficient for your "off the grid" cruising adventures.
"Gato" has voyaged from the USA across the Pacific, via French Polynesia, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, New Zealand and is duty and tax paid in Australia. This is the perfect catamaran for Australian and Pacific cruising.
