BLUEWATER CRUISING SAILBOATS FOR SALE

cruising sailing catamaran for sale

2019 Outbound 56

Specifying and building Outbound 56 BAREFOOT was a labour of love for her owners. They wanted to build the best quality and most practical cruising yacht that they could sail easily, as a couple, and that would carry them and their young children in safety and comfort, even to remote areas. The yacht is a very highly specified and much improved version of the well-known Hylas 56. Even after delivery the owner continued to improve and upgrade the yacht – including changing out the main engine. No cost has been spared to produce this wonderful yacht. With her hydraulic in-mast furling main, hydraulic furler to both of the headstays, electric furling gennaker, electric sheet winches - all controlled at the cockpit – she may be sailed single-handed (and has been). The interior provides a delightful aft “stateroom”, a double cabin forward and a versatile third cabin that may be used as a single or double and serves as a stowage area and workbench.

We take pride in our happy customers

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

— Beverly Cory

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.

Cruising Catamarans For Sale by Owner

Why List Your Cruising Catamaran As “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) With Catamaran Guru?

Here are some great reasons:

Usually the boat seller pays a customary 10% brokers fee or commission on its sale. The fee covers advertising, market analysis, promotions, showings, escrow account, documentation handling, transfer of funds, etc. However, if the seller and buyer feel confident handling the sales process on their own, you can do the work and bank that 10% or use part of your savings to make your boat than the competition.

That’s a win for both parties! Catamaran Guru earns no commission from FSBO listings advertised here and we can ethically not intervene or advise on a FSBO listing. We offer inexpensive listing services to catamaran sellers worldwide. However, we do represent yacht sellers or yacht buyers , if requested separate from FSBO.

Have Total Control of Your Listing

You decide how good the information and pictures are that we publish here. We allow you to post pictures, and videos and write a lengthy description and specifications to show your catamaran to its fullest potential. You respond directly to buyer inquiries and complete any negotiations and paperwork directly with the buyer.

Catamaran Sales Continue to Strengthen

Frequently Asked Questions

Professional representation for yacht buyers.

Not all sellers use a broker, but it is very beneficial for buyers to utilize the knowledge and negotiation expertise of a broker. There are many facets involved in purchasing a yacht, for example; depending on where the boat is registered, there can be obstacles in documentation, surveys and more. Additionally, using a broker is not an extra expense as it should be worked into the price of the boat.

Meet the HopYacht 30

  • By Cruising World Staff
  • May 30, 2024

HopYacht 30

The HopYacht 30 is built in Cape Town, South Africa, with naval architecture by Du Toit Yacht Design. The boat is imported to the United States through HopYacht USA in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and is being marketed as an entry-level vessel.

This catamaran is primarily designed for couples or families with young children—who may or may not yet be active members of the crew—and is ideal for sailing itineraries that include bay, coastal or short island hops. Ease of handling is part of the design brief.

For cruisers who want to head farther afield, the HopYacht 30 has demountable hulls and will fit into two standard 40-foot containers for shipping.

To make life on board easier, the HopYacht 30 has just one sail to manage. The genoa sheets are led to one winch at the helm station, so single-handed sailing is an option. An asymmetrical spinnaker can be added as an option.

Power is all electric, with electric sail drives as well as electric water heating and induction cooking. Cruising is whisper-quiet, and recharging is accomplished by way of four solar panels. According to HopYacht, the boat can cruise at a full-throttle speed of 6.9 knots for 2.4 hours, or at a cruising speed of 4.2 knots for more than eight hours.

Creature comforts are easily accessible because the cockpit, saloon and forward cabin areas are all on one level with standing headroom.

For relaxation time on the hook, there is wraparound upholstered cockpit seating that converts into a daybed for two people. In the cabin, there’s a walkaround, queen-size island berth. At the bow, where guests can relax on the trampoline, a cooler is built into the anchor locker with drink holders.

The galley is in the under-cover cockpit area, allowing the cook to socialize and enjoy the view—and giving heat a place to escape so it doesn’t stay trapped inside the saloon.

They don’t call it a head: The main deck has what HopYacht calls a proper bathroom, with a shower that has a bifold glass door, a Thetford Tecma Nano electric flush toilet with a macerator; and a Lewmar opening port in the window for ventilation.

Cargo Ships, Catamarans, & More: 10 Unique Alternatives To Regular Cruising

T here are plenty of amazing ways to explore the water bodies of the world. While the majority of travelers go with the more popular cruising options, it is exciting to try something new occasionally. These cool alternatives to cruising are super exciting, and even the most adventurous of travelers will fall in love with one of them. Without further ado, here are some epic cruising alternatives to try on one's next adventure.

Submarine Dives

Navy personnel are not the only people that get to enjoy submarine cruises. Travelers can too, and the experience is memorable. Submarine dives offer amazing opportunities to explore parts of the water that ships and divers cannot go to, which can sometimes be up to a thousand feet below sea level.

This adventure is sure to make one feel like a Navy SEAL embarking on a dangerous mission.

Submarine trips in the US aren't super common. However, they do exist. Travelers will have the ultimate experience if they book the best submarine tours in the US .

Whitewater Rafting

Although it does not come with the luxurious amenities of regular cruises, whitewater rafting adventures generate thrills that cruises do not offer. Rafters get a ton of exercise as their muscles battle rapids, and they get splashed with water - rather than just lazying about on a luxury cruise.

There are many destinations around the world where one can spend an entire vacation whitewater rafting. One such place is Costa Rica, where there are plenty of epic whitewater rafting destinations with different classes of rapids. Other places with the best whitewater rafting in the world include the Colorado River in the United States, the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe, and the Mitta River in Australia.

Whitewater rafting may seem similar to kayaking (albeit much more strenuous and exhilarating), but the latter is much different. Kayaking, unlike whitewater rafting, is generally a calmer and more relaxing way to explore the earth’s waterbodies. Although some brave souls use kayaks over vast water bodies, it is generally safer to kayak in smaller waterbodies where there are fewer waves.

Kayaking is a great alternative to cruise ships because it gets people so close to the water and its surroundings. Plus, kayakers can go to places that ships cannot go to. Canoes are very similar to kayaks, so this also applies to them.

Catamaran Trips

Catamaran boats are double-hull boats, so they are perfect for those who want more space while on their cruise. On catamarans, there is more living space, which makes cruising on these vessels great for families with kids.

Besides the extra space, Catamaran boats are more balanced on the water; hence cruising on these vessels feels more relaxing, even in unstable waters. Due to the reduced rock and roll effects that the sea waves have on catamarans, those onboard will be less likely to suffer from seasickness, too.

Amazon River Cruises

As the name suggests, these are cruises that take passengers through the mighty Amazon River . These cruises are exciting as they offer opportunities to explore the incredible plant and animal life of the largest rainforest in the world.

The Amazon River cruise is arguably the greatest wildlife expedition in the world because there is no place on earth as biodiverse as the forest it goes through. Those onboard these riverboats will feel like some of the greatest explorers in history while on the trips.

River Cruises

While the Amazon River Cruise focuses on one particular river, it is important to note that there are other rivers around the world where one can enjoy exciting cruises.

Although it may seem familiar, river cruises are quite different from the more popular sea cruises because one will be able to see a lot of greenery, wildlife, and cities on the way instead of just being in a massive ship in the middle of a vast sea.

Sailboat Cruises

As more people turn to environmentally friendly modes of traveling , sailboats have become increasingly popular -and they are also exciting. One does not have to be Greta or an avid environmentalist to enjoy sailing. It’s a peaceful and unique experience to cruise on these vessels, especially those with luxury amenities.

Sailboat cruising brings one closer to the water and makes one feel like humans of old who used these vessels to explore the world.

Cargo Ship Travel

Traveling by cargo ship is one of the most unique adventures in the world . It is an opportunity to truly enjoy the serenity of the sea. While they may not come with loads of amenities like cruise ships, the lack thereof is kind of what makes cargo ships so peaceful. This means that even though there may be no Wi-Fi or nightclubs, one will not have to deal with crowded swimming pools and noisy bars.

It is instead a slow and peaceful ride to the next port with plenty of opportunities to get involved in the everyday running of the ship.

Related: 5 Reasons To Consider Cargo Ship Travel (5 Why Not)

Jet Boat Rides

Jetboats are small and fast, and this makes them thrilling ways to explore the waters of the earth. While their small size enables them to reach places regular ships can’t go, their powerful engines make them move with incredible speed.

The excitement that those few minutes riding on these vehicles can bring is arguably more than what hours of regular ship cruises can offer.

Houseboat Rental

Houseboats are on water what RVs are on land. They are homes that are not permanently positioned in a single location but can move to wherever the owner wants. Instead of housing hundreds and even thousands of people at once, as cruise ships do, these houseboats make the experience more personal by only accommodating a few people.

Whether people are spending the vacation with family, friends, or business partners, a houseboat is the perfect way to do it away from land and cruise ships.

Halifax harbour to host the first-ever Sail Grand Prix race in Canadian waters

cruising sailing catamaran for sale

The Team Canada vessel is lowered into the water in the Dartmouth harbour on May 31. Some of the fastest sailing vessels in the world will compete in teams of six representing 10 countries in the Sail Grand Prix. Riley Smith/The Globe and Mail

Historically, Nova Scotia has always been home to the sleekest, speediest and most famous sailing ship in the country. The Bluenose, a cod-fishing and racing schooner built and launched from the shores of Lunenburg, N.S., in 1921, established itself as the world-acclaimed “Queen of the North Atlantic,” and has been iconic ever since – etched into the dime as a symbol of the province’s shipbuilding heritage.

It seems fitting that the equally famous replica of the iconic sailing vessel will be berthed on the Halifax waterfront, overlooking the elite Sail Grand Prix event in the harbour June 1 and 2 – where some of the fastest sailing vessels in the world will compete in teams of six representing 10 countries. It’s the first time these sailors have gone head-to-head in Canadian waters – flying F50 foiling catamarans between Georges Island and the Macdonald bridge at speeds of up to nearly 100 kilometres an hour.

Unlike traditional wooden schooners, or even the average sailboat moored at local clubs, these boats are equipped with thousands of sensors gathering information, tracking their locations to the centimetre and generating 48 billion data points across the fleet, which is then shared openly with every team.

The flight controller for Team Canada, Billy Gooderham of Bedford, N.S., spoke to The Globe about the event, to be broadcast on TSN, YouTube and TikTok live this weekend.

How did you start your career as a sailor?

When most kids go to summer camp, I would go to sailing camp. I grew up doing summer sailing programs at the Royal Canadian Yacht Squadron in Toronto. And from there at a really early age I knew this was something that I really enjoyed doing. I moved into racing where I was on the Canadian youth national team. After that I was on the Canadian national team for four years and trying to go to the Olympics for the 2012 Olympics. I didn’t quite get to realize that goal. But after my four years of doing Olympic campaign, I started sailing professionally and that was about 12 years ago. Like any other sport, you work your way up through the ranks.

How does SailGP differ from regular sailing?

Obviously, the speeds are a heck of a lot faster in SailGP but it’s all still the same physics – the same physics that make your normal everyday mid-week racing boat work are the same physics that make our F50s work. The physics are all the same – just the loads are higher, the speeds are higher, and the consequences if you do it wrong are a heck of a lot higher.

What are the consequences if you do it wrong?

Normally you’d blow up all the aerodynamic fairings on the boat and you can actually get quite hurt. You see broken bones and concussions when people get it wrong so we’re trying to avoid that.

The flight controller for Team Canada, Billy Gooderham of Bedford, N.S., works on the vessel in Dartmouth, N.S. on May 31. Riley Smith/The Globe and Mail

What are you doing to prep yourself physically, mentally, emotionally for race day?

I sort of become a bit of a recluse when it’s a Grand Prix weekend – I hang out in the hotel room by myself. All the data that comes off the boats is recorded so we have 1,500 data points that run on the boat at 50 hertz so a lot like in auto racing where these guys go and look at the data of what they’re trying and try to look at ways they can improve. We can go back and look at the data we have from past events and try and improve the way we do things.

One of the things that’s very unique to SailGP is that all of the data is open so we can go look at what other teams are doing and look at the on-board video and data and cherry pick the good and the bad, and we try to incorporate that into how we sail our boat.

How do the communication features and technology interact differently than on regular sailboats?

The speeds we go at are the same speed you would drive on the highway. The boats are incredibly loud. We have a full electronic communication system so that we can actually hear each other on the boat. Everybody has to be really precise. There is no room for any one person to make a mistake because the speeds are so high and the consequences are so high if you get it wrong.

How would you describe your role as flight controller?

I control how high the boat flies off the water. My focus is to have the boat 1 to 1.2 metres off the water. Any lower and you’re not going the speed you’d like to be going, and any higher you’re starting to get a bit out of control and lining yourself up for a big nosedive and a big crash.

Anatomy of the F50 Catamaran

The F50 boasts cutting-edge technology to make it a remarkably fast boat in the annals of sailing history with an estimated top speed of more than 52 knots (97 km/h). Its 24-metre wing can be altered to suit wind conditions and its foils are constructed with carbon fibre while the lower section of the rudders are manufactured using high-strength stainless steel to reduce drag.

How does it relate to driving a race car?

I always joke that [fellow team member] Phil [Robertson] does the left-right, which is the steering. I have the gas pedal, which is how high we’re flying the boat. And then another person has the brakes. It’s like trying to drive a car where each portion of driving the car is done by a different person.

We have the grinders, which are the power. They’re the guys that turn the winch that allows our wing trimmer to trim the wing sail. They’re almost the gasoline and then I’m obviously the accelerator. Our wing trimmer is a combination – a bit of gas pedal as well but also putting the brakes on when he needs to. And then we have our strategist at the back and she’s in charge of navigation and routing. It’s very much a team effort.

What’s your advice for young people who want to get into competitive sailing?

When I think about my career, it’s had a lot of highs, but it’s also had a lot of lows. I didn’t get my goal of qualifying for the Olympics and I’ve had some down moments. But I’ve never let anybody tell me I can’t do anything. I haven’t always been the best sailor in the room, but I’ve always been the hardest working.

What does it feel like to be competing at home for the first time?

My job on the boat is a very head down job and I’m happy to be solely focused 100 per cent on what I’m doing. But I don’t see it as extra pressure. There may be a bit of pressure, but we feel it gives us a boost and we can’t wait.

What can we expect to see at the Sail Grand Prix event?

You have 10 teams with these boats that go 100 km an hour in a really small space and whether you’re a sailor or not it’s amazing entertainment. There’s always drama, the speeds are high. Hopefully we don’t crash into each other but that does happen.
