OK. Since my other post got removed (due to a link) here's the info:
(PM me for a link to more pictures)
It is with a sad heart that we reluctantly offer our home and world cruising catamaran
the s/v Wendy Ellen up for sale
. We have a new crew member
(baby) coming in July we're ready for a break from the long crossings with bub (we’ve done it once already!).
Someone is going to have the great fortune of walking into a ready-to-sail-around-the-world, turn-key, blue-water, cruising boat
. I mean she’s ready to go. We sailed her from Mexico
and were on our way west to Vanuatu
and then onto Indo and S. E. Asia
Everything is there. Ready for a couple or family
. All cookware, great stainless steel
pots and pans and the worlds greatest pressure cooker. Plus all the extras, spares and tools needed. Just show up with a pair of boardies (though we rarely even wore any) and hoist the anchor!
The s/v Wendy Ellen is a British made Prout Event 34 built in 1990. Well known around the world Prout was the first company to produce fiberglass blue water
cats back in 1945. They’ve held a sterling reputation for safety
since then and many Prouts have circumnavigated and wrote about it including ‘A Sailing Promise’ which inspired the Bumfuzzles to buy a cat and sail around the world.
There are swim steps on each hull
stern leading to a spacious solid aft deck
. The cockpit
is large and has bench seats all around plus a collapsing wooden dinner table. There is a solid dodger
with glass windows and a full shade bimini
that covers the entire cockpit
A wooden door opens into the roomy main salon
which is as wide as the entire fly bridge due to the lack of for/aft bulkheads. In the main salon
are two settee bench seats with custom cushions
(recently upholstered). The forward part of the salon has been converted into the awesome Parents Stateroom with a thousand dollar memory foam latex Queen size mattress and storage
Three short steps lead to into each hull
. To starboard is the surprisingly spacious galley
with plenty of counter space, a single
basin sink (pressure water
and foot pump), a three burner gas range and a separate wall mounted oven
(plenty of fresh bread!). To the fore and aft of the starboard hull are fore and aft double berths (the forward berth is more like a 1 1/2 but we’ve had plenty of couple sleep in there!). Also the full chest style fridge and separate freezer
are in the aft starboard berth.
To port, there is the nav station and good counter space, with another double berth aft and a huge head
forward with a manual pump Jabsco
, sink with pressure water
, mirror, cupboard and heaps of storage
All three hull berths have a hanging locker, drawers and shelves plus a small table surface, mirror, light and heaps of extra storage nooks. They all have a closing and locking wooden door.
The foredeck is also solid so plenty of extra chill out space for a deck
chair or yoga etc.
She is currently registered as an Australian Ship. She has not been imported to Australia
. It was our intention to continue west without import

There is a beautiful polished weld arch added a few years ago ($6000US!) with solar panels
for the dinghy.
There is one of the berths currently used as a tool room with every tool and spare part that you will need all organised into tubs, drawers and lockers.
This is an excellent family catamaran
for people who want to go blue water cruising. Everything is ready to go. This is a heavy, kind of slow, very safe boat. This is not a fast modern million dollar catamaran. We love her and have sailed 10,000 miles in her so far. Someone is going to get a great boat for a great price
