Hey Brian,

Great to hear from you! Someday we'd like to find ourselves cruising Mexico again. After 8 years of full-time cruising our kitty is empty so we need to sell the boat and find jobs.

I know you're joking about a trade, but we'd be open to a property/boat/cash trade if the right deal came along.

Re: Chris White Atlantic 42 performance cruising catamaran for sale

Has the vessel been dis-masted?

LightSpeed is 100% turn-key ready to cruise now. Including a mast!

All SS rigging, turnbuckles and Navtec swagless fittings were replaced in 2012 to ensure many many years of trouble free South Pacific cruising.

To clarify: To my knowledge, LightSpeed has never been dismasted and there are no indications to suggest otherwise.

I re-rigged LightSpeed in 2012 simply because I'm a cautious and prudent mariner who tends to sail long distances in very remote regions where gear failure is not acceptable.

Joking?
Ok, I'll include the triple axle aluminum trailer and the sweet Dodge diesel 4x4 MegaCab tow rig.
Just think, you can get back to work and still have an awesome sailing cat with virtually no maintenance/mooring fees!
Oh we'll at least my dreaming (joking) is bumping your add back up to the top of the list.
Where do you guys want to relocate to?
Good luck with the sale.
Lightspeed is one heck of a pimped out machine!!!

Beautiful boat, and totally tricked out. When was she built, and what is the asking price?

Thanks,
Will

LightSpeed launched in 1997 at Lombardi Yachts Virginia, USA weighing 6.5 tons.

In 1998 she won the cruising multihull of the year.

Superior build quality might be a understatement. If you want Lombardi to build you a new A42 you'd be looking at $700,000. according to this ad on Yachtworld Maybe you could get one built for less in Chile or SA. But, at the end of the day we all know you get what you pay for. Plus a new boat needs to be outfitted $$,$$$ to cruise. My asking price is about half of the cost of a new Atlantic 42 and a pretty sweet deal for the right buyer.

I've had no qualm about outfitting LightSpeed with the best gear available.

In September of 2010 a major refit including new Yanmar 3YM30 engines, new Yanmar SD20 saildrives, new Gori folding propellers, new radar, new autopilot and more.

In 2011-2012 new interior cushions, new SS standing rigging, house batteries and more.

In 2013 new anchor chain, bottom paint (Sept 2013), inverter/charger and more.

I could post the price here, but I'd prefer that you took a look at the dedicated website for the latest upgrades, photos, videos, location and price.

Thanks for your interest and let me know if you have any specific questions.

PS

I'm in discussions with my wife about completing a circumnavigation before we sell the boat. I've sailed 55,000-60,000 miles in the last 8 years, but it would be fun to throw in another 15,000 to complete a proper circumnavigation. If we go this route delivery almost anywhere in the world might sweeten the deal for a prospective buyer.
