General Details

A true blue-water cruising catamaran just in from the Caribbean.  SOLAR QUEST was built in England under Lloyds supervision and specification and was designed for comfort and safety at sea with a center-cockpit and ketch rig.  She has many cruising miles under her keels with many more left to sail.  Spacious with a well thought-out interior, abundant storage, loads of deck space, solar panels, water maker and dinghy she is ready to set sail again.


Solar Quest has a large main salon with plenty of headroom and seating.  A U-shaped  seating area with centerline table provides ample area for lounging or entertaining.  Built-in shelving and storage for wine and glasses surround the seating area with a large flat screen TV mounted to the aft bulkhead.  Sliding mirrored bulkhead panels open into the forward cabins.  Four cabins with queen-sized berths provide spacious accommodations with forward and aft cabins and large heads on port and starboard. The galley is mid-ships on starboard with tasteful Corian countertops, double stainless steel sink, hot and cold pressure water, Force 10 4 burner LPG stove/oven, microwave oven and ample storage cupboards. The nav station is located on the port side just forward of the aft cabin with storage underneath.  Midships is a workspace with large storage compartments underneath for spare parts.
