2008 Orana 440 -- Voyage Ready & Excellent Condition

Oh the Places You’ll Go: This meticulously-maintained, fully-equipped and highly-customized catamaran can take you –or host you -- anywhere in the world in safety, style, and comfort. Built by Fountaine-Pajot and upgraded by the original/current owners for their recently-completed circumnavigation, this 2008 Orana 440 Maestro – 1 owner’s suite, and 2 bedrooms each with their own head/shower, and a roomy forward workroom in the starboard bow -- offers the discerning cruiser/voyager a ready-to-cast-off vessel able to navigate the shallow waters of the Chesapeake Bay, the coral atolls of the South Pacific, and the boisterous trade winds of the Indian Ocean.

Newly available after her successful 2010-2012 circumnavigation, and fresh from a complete post-arrival refit, ile de Grace is available for viewing and a test sail at her owner’s private dock north of Annapolis. Customized for blue water voyaging safety, she sports reinforced battens, strengthened luffs, solar panels, a wind generator, a multi-purpose stern arch, customized reefing gear, extra safety handles, reinforced anchor lockers and docking cleats, redundant NavNet 3D navigation and autopilot systems, a Spectra 12V watermaker, ham radio, and a full suite of heavy weather gear, including drogues, sea anchors, survival gear, and a life raft. For calmer waters and for the majority of time spent on the hook or at the dock, her 4-zone air conditioning, customized cabinetry, freezer, washing machine, 10kW generator, chaise lounges, foredeck sunshades, and a spacious, bright and airy saloon make living on the boat more like staying in an upscale condominium. The master cabin has a customized mattress and a large separate stand-alone shower with an electric fresh water toilet, and ample storage for clothing, books, and office supplies.

Able to be sailed single-handedly, with helm station sail management, reefing and anchoring controls, the Orana’s open layout can accommodate 6-8 sleeping guests, seat up to a dozen dinner guests, and host up to 20 daysailing guests. She’s been maintained throughout her life with a meticulous eye to cleanliness, safety, and quality, and she looks and sails almost new. Just add some diesel, top off the water tanks, and she’s ready for another circumnavigation, a winter in the Caribbean, or lying dockside as a live-aboard or weekend retreat. Offered at $385,000, US.

Got a head full of lightning, and a hat full of rain."
