Re: Considering Buying a Cat - St. Francis 44 or Mayotte 47 ?

Hi,
I had her sold but the guy had to back out because of a divorcde in progress....So here she is again.
47-FT MAYOTTE/VOYAGE, 1994
panama city, panama $219,000
Motivated seller! New survey says $306,000 value. I say $219,000 and the 1st one there gets her!
I love my wife very much and this is not for her, so am willing to walk away after spending over 2000 hours and lots of $ to get her ready to go.
Many brand new items and systems on Archies Way. Mast, boom, all standing and most running rigging totally rebuilt. New hypalon 11.5 dinghy, watermaker, upolstery,etc. Great for kids, couple or charter. Contact me for all info and photos. This is one of those deals that you will kick yourself for not checking out before it is gone..
It is only a 2.5 hour flight from Miami or Houston.....

Appreciate any thoughts...
Hi There, just thought i would throw up an option. check out www.sailpegasus.com She is a Chris White Atlantic 46lr (actually 48ft long) and has completed a family circumnav with 2 kids on board. Plenty of room, great sailing performance and good social boat. May give you an option against those old production boats.

cruisersforum.com is run by a st francis owner who seems pissed about his boat - a very biased web site.

I wouldn't say that - I would say it is a very uncensored web site where everyone gets a say. And on the contrary - he loves the boat just peeved about some of the build quality and service support.

The Mayotte 47 was made by Voyager Yachts in Cape Town, the moulds were stretched and a sharper bow added to become the Voyager 50 which is still made.
I think you'll find the Mayotte 47 was actually built by Fred Scholtz Marine in Cape Town - around the same time the original Voyage was a 40ft'ER built by Norseman before ownership changed and the company became Voyage.

We are listing our Belize 43 cat for sale. This has very good bridgedeck clearance and sails great. A long way from you but, may be a good place to start a cruise. Will take 10% less than listing price.

Re: Considering Buying a Cat - St. Francis 44 or Mayotte 47 ?

The Mayotte47 (Voyage) is a far better choice.
Engines are not in living area but in dedicated seperate eng rooms.
Boat can be beached or stand on keels without damaging rudders.
Has a LOT more bridgedeck clearance.
More interior head room.
Can carry more load. And and and....
Get the Voyage!!!
