We are looking for new owners for our beloved SV Abeona, a 2012 Catana
42 Carbon priced at $349,000 and currently cruising the East Coast
of the USA. She has served us well and we believe strikes an excellent balance of sailing performance and live-aboard
comfort. Abeona has been extensively fine-tuned and upgraded over the 3000nm we have cruised her - she is fully out-fitted for long range cruising. This is the 4-cabin/2-head version.
Please contact us for the website with more information, photos, and a specification sheet.
The Catana 42 Carbon was named the Best Multihull
under 50ft by Cruising World and is unique as the only sub 45ft performance catamaran
built in the last decade for long term cruising
. This boat
out-sails anything in the class and lives up to the hype in terms of performance while also being a comfortable home at anchor
. She has been extensively retrofitted, upgraded, and fine-tuned for long-range cruising and the lucky new owners will be purchasing
a “cruise-ready” catamaran
to sail away on.
The Catana 42’s unique sail handling systems – combining quality over-spec’d hardware
, a line/winch console, and unique sheet/traveler rigging
set-up allows easier short-handed sailing, safer/quicker reefing, more sail trimming control, and a clean deck/cockpit. Aft helm
stations allow sailors to feel the wind
, watch the ocean, monitor
the sales, and feel like they are actually sailing. Catanas enjoy sailing at upwind angles that most cruising catamarans only dream about. With uniquely shaped hulls, overbuilt construction, and flexible sail plan, challenging conditions that would test other catamarans are comfortable and no-sweat for Catanas.
The unique layout creates a wide and comfortable cockpit
that is much more spacious and comfortable than other boats this size and the views underneath a structural bimini
are expansive. The seamless transition between cockpit
and comfortable salon/galley creates an “open floor plan” that lets the overall living space feel far larger than a 42ft boat
should. This is the four berths and two head
layout that accommodates growing families, guests, and “stuff” with ease. Storage
space takes advantage of the raised berths and large lazarettes and provides a nearly limitless amount of storage
for provisions and gear
Please contact the owner for the website or to ask questions.
Abeona has benefitted from extensive upgrades and retrofitting since 2019 as she has been cruised full-time over 3000 nautical miles. During that time the owners have fine-tuned her inventory to meet the needs of serious sailing families – this boat is ready to go cruising. Please contact us for a complete spec sheet.
