Free Catamaran !

Hello Forum,

I found this on the web, it was just posted a few days ago, but I am not sure if this cat is still available. I have not seen the boat, have no affiliation to the poster, just thought it might be interesting for the forum.

Re: Free catamaran!

I'd take it for the parts and scrap the rest, or maybe make a barge of it. But wrong coast.

So THAT'S what a 'custom catamaran' looks like huh? I'll just stick with the standard model.

Re: Free Catamaran !

Well, to me it looks like a very inexpensive live aboard option. Get it, clean it, improve it and have a place to live at a marginal fraction of the cost of any land property.

Re: Free Catamaran !

Finally, a boat I could afford without worrying about money. Now where is that $500/month thread...

I wonder what the interior looks like.

It would take a few thousand (ok tens of thousands) to get it in a sailable, nice moden liveaboard condition, but fixing that one up 'might' be quicker than building a new one from scratch.

If only I were crazy and didn't have a 9-5 job.

Why wouldn't they put up newer pictures?
