Fiolleau - Cruising Cat Info Wanted

Hi there, you readers and cat specialists. We would like to buy a catamaran and now we like more information about the Fiolleau Cruising Cat. Anybody some experience with this kind of cat? We're planned to fly to the US to buy a (older and cheaper) cat. We've found a St. Francis 44 and the Fiolleau please, some advise wanted...

Kind regards,

Sailingcouple the Netherlands

(that's why the grammatica is bad...)

Re: FIOLLEAU - CRUISING CAT INFO WANTED

If it's the 46' Fiolleau that's located in Riviera Beach Florida we looked at it a couple of months ago. Beautiful boat. Only thing I can see holding it back from selling is the fact it's strip plank construction and it has AC electric motors that run of twin generators. Not mainstream so I think it scares people of.

Thank you Mike, we didn't thought one minute of the power system! But is it easy to fix it with a converter? Or... and we do know about the requirements for imported, but we do not know (jet) how much.

Kind regards,

I really donĘt know to be honest but i guess it is not just a fix with a converter

i know to be honest but have a look at this tread US Boat in Australia he have done similar to what you will be doing .
