Today we set off to view what seems like the perfect cruising catamaran for our needs, but there is a GIANT "but".
After the searching everywhere for the past month we've narrowed our search down to an Owners Version and we're on the hunt. Today we're checking out a Leopard 43, Lagoon 410 and a Fontaine Pajot Belize 43.

Head is a noun not a verb...for all you verbage nazis...although head as a verb is a more important necessity while at sea...freudian slip.

So much noise walking through the hulls, is that just the floor? Now I’m hearing creeks on the deck, no thanks

Yep, with big waves, chop and wind sailboats are loud.

The cats were mad they didn't get to go look at the boats. It's their home too. LOL.

How funny he just sits there!! Thank you family for sharing your journey with us all. Jasper pup and I are travelers looking to open this new chapter of living on the water. My goal is to help cleanup waterways. We clean up forests and parks all across the U.S. maybe one-day we see you guys out in the waters.... Safe travels! Namaste

This woman wants to go well over their budget? They must make good money! Ken, the salesman, is good at his job. Take them to something they want and then to a harsh wake-up viewing.

Just an observation, at 13 minutes and 56 seconds into this video it's you guys depart from this boat it is apparent it is very difficult for you to to take your eyes off this boat!

Nice to hear some South African English. Cat looks very well designed and very practical.

Owners versions can cost up to $100.000 more. Experts say look at boats in the summer and in out of the way markets.

The deck creaked when walked on. I can only imagine it when under way. And,...spending your money is a lot more fun than spending mine!

It's fun to look back now in 2019 to see you both walk through your boat for the first time in 2016. It's obvious Nikki loves the boat.

Now that Vagabond is 3 people I think that boat would have been the better pick for them. They need more room for the baby.
C Hunter

Maybe, but don’t forget that Vagabond couldn’t afford a catamaran of that size (at that time) and were extremely grateful / lucky to team up with Outremer (Franc catamaran). Without them involved it would have been impossible (according to them). You gotta start somewhere. Also I think Riley wanted as light a boat as possible. No extras. It’s still good room for 3 in there, but if it was me, I would prefer an owners version especially with washing machine and all the extras.

1700 engine hours is not low. It is not excessive, but it is not low.

I dont know guys something not very right about that vessel and overbearing look and feel of cheap , Squeeky hatches with molded deck joinery. The other thing that may worry me is that yuor concerns with the boat were all about decorating and not about the boat because like the ocean yeah they are cabins, heads, galley, forward, bow, aft .. no boat is perfect offer half and stand firm ...those engine rooms you will have nightmares about dealing iwth those engine rooms .... im not a hater just a concerned and very experienced friendly pirate ...

She clearly has no idea what elements of a cruising yacht are more important. The realtor obviously shows his practical knowledge and points out more crucial items, or lack thereof (in a humble manner).

Repairs and maintenance are almost always overlooked. Broken, masts, rudders have filled the oceans with millions of dollars of sailboats. A lot of the hardware, electrical, hoses, etc seem to be questionable on a lot of boats. You really need an expert to protect yourself, sadly not everyone is your friend.

While the first boat may have been 150k over.. I would with the sails and rigging, look to get a nice discount for that because it will have to be replaced at some point.. I would also put in an offer which included that detail.. maybe 120k or so above the budget.. that is taking 30k off the price.. so you take out a loan for that 120k.. while it may not be ideal, you are getting the boat you want.. there is no bones about that.. Your enjoyment will be so much more, making you both so much more happier.. and you might figure out a way to perhaps make a little extra money using a laptop on the boat with some internet type income.. or some type job you can normally do from home.. The first boat in comparison to the second.. is like night and day..
LivelysReport 4 months ago
Also the idea of being patient has some rewards, it also has some draw backs as well.. known as, if you snooze you loose.. because someone will make an offer on that first boat and it depends on how motivated the seller might be.. I would make a low ball offer and let them know its a standing offer.. so you can be both patient and have in an offer..

So the 2 smaller heads don’t have separate shower stalls? You have to pick up the faucet from the sink and stand there in front of the toilet to shower? How doable is that?

Hey man, I really love you guys and your attitude. My GF and I may be setting sail sometime soon, and I have been looking at some low to mid 40' Catana boats, mid 90's to mid 2000's. We want the speed factor, which your Leopard seems to have. I know you are bombarded with these comments daily, but do you have any insight? Supposedly Catanas can do the speed of the apparent wind. Is there a reason you did not choose a Catana? Broadblue also seems to be a nice combo of quality, room, and speed.
Christo Dabraccio
Christo Dabraccio 8 months ago
@Gone with the Wynns Great to know, no broadblue. There is this one for $300k that seemed nice, quality build, but I am going to save time (possible headaches)... So the Catana I keep hearing about is the 471 (looks like the 2006), has clocked 25 knots speed, and right now a couple are priced at $360-400k (one in FLA for $360k), with 2 others at upper 400's. www.yachtworld.com/boats/Sail/Catamaran/Catana/471 Your Leopard 43 also looks very nice and I hope it is treating you well. May I ask your top speed sailing and average-ish if decent wind of 10+ knots? Maybe someday we can all meet. :)

Older Catana's are great. There is a specific year and size that's known for it's quality and speed. I can't remember exactly anymore but I think it was the 50' from the early 2000's. We considered the Catana but quickly realized they were out of our budget at $100k+ more expensive than our Leopard. We considered Broadblue but we were told to steer clear by several people that we trust, so I can't give you any insight on them. Good luck, there are a lot of options out there.

Try hurricane damage boats. Find high end boat repair. One way to knock price down.
