Re: Voyage cats

We have a Voyage 50 and it is a good cat you can you get some slamming in a big Sea but nothing to worry about, we are very happy with our Mayotte and would have no problem in recommending one to anybody

Re: Voyage cats

Speaking of using the boom "crane" lift. I have changed out my generator twice now the ten years we had the boat. We lifted the old generator out, drove to a nearby city dock and set the old one on the ground. We then lifted the "new" used low hour generator out of my Tahoe and onto the boat. Then picked up the old one off the dock and set it in the truck. Afterwards we went out to a calm anchorage and put the new generator in place.

Our older 470 was the original model of the 500 and now 520, stretched twice. The interior layout is the same as the new 520 charter version with minor interior changes.

Solidly built boats with proven systems to be able to turn around quickly in the charter fleet and have everything work.

Re: Voyage cats

We chartered a Voyage 520 a couple years ago and it has been my favorite boat to date. Relatively fast compared to the typical charter boats, responsive and plenty comfortable for the two families we had on board. Sure, it lacks the bridge deck and some of the other features of the more common charter cats, but I personally like their lower profile and overall design. Also, one of the more reliable cats I have chartered and seemed more solid than some of the other cats. If I was looking for a boat to own for cruising Voyage would be on my list of contenders - especially the new 480.
