KSS39 Catamaran

Hello I have been reading the forum for some time but this is the first time I have posted on this fourm, or any forum. I have seen a cat for sale but am not familuar with it. It is a KSS39 Coproracion Ballota SAC. It was listed on the Catamaran Company site. What do the experts of this forum say?? How is the construction? How does it sail? Just wondering not in the market yet.

I believe Ballotta has now built around 6 Kelsall cats using the KSS method. Essentially flat panel foam core resin infusion technology exactly what I want.

They are the largest boatbuilder in Peru and without visiting their factory they look the goods. Have experience with a wide range of other vessels.

Intend to visit Peru in 1st half of year to do some due dilligance myself.

I think one of the 3 58ft Kelsalls they built is somewhere in States. Contact Ballotta and get a look at a couple of vessels currently in the water.
