Available at cost at this stage at about $3
million (subject to change as construction continues) and you can
finish her the way you want, inside and out as well as her exterior
color scheme. This catamaran is being built for us, the owners
of Pedigree Catamarans Inc. Recently, our plans have changed
due to age and family plans. We are considering maybe take a
Yacht in on trade and just playing local in California.
This is a great place to start…saving over
1½ years of construction time in building the basic platform for
your dream you create. Even the exterior color and scheme can
be your choice; lots of personal additions can be made easily as
that is where she is in the construction stage.
We are continuing the final fairing for painting the front bow net
attachment and drop down beaching ladder. The aft deck shower
and bathroom being completed while the aft deck bar or lounging area
has not been started yet. Next will be the guest staterooms
and crew quarters finished as started and seen in photos.
Engine rooms completed (Twin 315 HP Yanmar diesels) and water maker

main sheet traveler and winch at the helm. The radar arch is
This cat is 86' long and 42' wide and with keels and can be beached
or set on a spit at low tide to do clean up or repaint bottoms.

This cat is 100% foam core construction,
insulated at R-5 and R-10. She is virtually unsinkable, she does not
sweat and is 33% stronger under impact than solid fiberglass or
aluminum, and is about 30% light.
This cat has 2' keels over 20' long that
will support her if you want to let the tide go out and repaint
bottom, replace zincs or beaching. Draft is still only
about 5' as these, rudders (Carbon fiber posts) and props (full
feathering and adjustable pitch) also hang down here.
The electric engine controls are located on the port and starboard
aft as well as the helm station.
There is a bow thruster controller and refueling station
with tank quantity gauge and back splash protection fill boxes
located there as well. There is
great control and visibility when docking. Fresh water
inlets are eye level on each side from the dock, electric inlet is
through the engine room port window and the waste pump outlets on
each side at eye level and easy access from the dock or from a pump

head, shower, bar and ample seating with storage. There are lots of
indirect lighting planned, under the walkway on each side heading

monitored and if needed can be switched with handle to allow new
filter to be in use and the old one changed out later. Engines
have their own battery which cannot be used by other things and also
is equipped with a ACR (automatic charging relay) that will allow it
to charge other batteries after its own is topped off. The
engines are fresh water cooled as are the 2 generators.
Battery compartment under the helm has dry cell Optima 31 DP

under the helm has a roll around stool for serving the water maker

She is well underway and plans for everything above the water line
are being made. The slide show will be updated as we go and a
lot of this will make since then and as the concept artists help put
the ideas in sketches.
This yacht has 41 years of building
experience and about 20,000 miles of cruising designed into her
layout and type of equipment, especially in the service areas to
allow easy and spacious access to components as needed for
