Has anyone heard of a Voyager 36 cat?

Hi Everyone. Iíve been lurking long enough in the shadows reading the miriad fascinating topics on this fabulous site. So now itís time to join up.

My name is Andy, Iím 54 and live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. Iíve sailed since I was 10 in small and big boats-all monoís and have things like Sydney-Hobart, Fastnet and 50k nm under by belt predominantly in Northern European waters and a few ocean deliveries as skipper.

My plan is to buy as a liveaboard with my two teenage sons. To me, a cat makes sense in view of liveable space. A mono (unless a smaller centreboarder) canít get over the bar into the river where I will be moored. I hasten to add that the single most important requisite is that the cat is liveable. Sailing performance and offshore capability are well down the list.

Iíve inspected a few cats, one being a Voyager 36. It looks a bit like a shed on two hulls but provides good accommodation and has been in charter meaning it should be tough. If anyoneís interested, hereís the link.

Apologies for rambling on but here are my 2 questions. Does anyone have any knowledge of these yachts and their pedigree and what are your thoughts on the asking price?

Thanks in anticipation if any constructive feedback.

Cheers Andy

Howdy and Welcome Aboard Andy!

I cannot help you with your question. But others CF members in the Multihull forum here on CF will likely have some opinions or advice for you.

From your description of your experience, I am sure your posts will be a valuable addition to CF.

Bon Voyage on CF and on the water too.

Thanks very much for replying Steady Hand. I think the cat I am looking at is quite a local boat and probably not well known outside Australia due to its limited offshore credentials. Worth asking though.

Cheers Andy.

Thats an interesting one.

I'm sure one of the Australian posters will know the history.

Australian production multihulls went through a period of , not so much development but flopping/ recycling of existing moulds to produce boats.

I seem to remember that the Simpson- Clouds/ Elite/Voyager are all "brothers to a different mother". shall we say.

Check the Bridge deck clearance. You may find the Performance Polars are similar to Thor Hayerdhals famous ride.

Thanks Seaslug. Your feedback is much appreciated. I think you are right that the Voyager is a reincarnation of other designs/names including Sabre (Sable?). The underwing clearance is very low for offshore needs but ok for my live aboard requirements.
