General Details



This fine vessel is a well equipped and very clean example of the very popular Maine Cat 30 cruising catamaran. This very attractive design has fine performance on all points of sail - even upwind with the centerboard down, great visibility for both helmsman and passengers from the all weather cockpit, good underwing clearance to prevent slamming and comfortable and private accommodations for five+. The Maine Cat's stability and absence of heeling provide unparalleled comfort and safety. The wide beam develops a powerful righting force which keeps Maine Cats sailing level and dampens any tendency to roll or yaw in cross or quartering seas. The bridgedeck clearance is generous when fully loaded and slamming in short seas has been virtually eliminated.

The Maine Cat 30 can accommodate up to seven persons in two double berths, one single berth and one warm weather double berth on the bridgedeck. The interior has been designed for easy cleaning with smooth gel coat surfaces and satin finished hard maple trim. Interior furniture is constructed using Core-Cell foam core for minimum weight and added structural strength. Seating and berth surfaces are cushioned with 4 in. high density foam covered with zippered Sunbrella covers. The cushion bottoms are ventilated. Excellent cabin ventilation is provided by 2 Lewmar opening hatches with screens, four Lewmar opening ports with screens and two large inboard facing companionway hatches with molded lockable hatches and smoked acrylic crib boards. Bridgedeck: The entire bridgedeck is protected by a hardtop and removable enclosure curtains; creating a very large and functional living space.

Port Hull: A companionway hatch and steps lead down from the bridgedeck to the port hull. Aft of the steps is a table/inside dinette area.

Brokers Comments
A simple live aboard cruiser for a short weekend getaway or the tropical cruise to the Bahamas and beyond! Great shoal draft capability to expand anchoring flexability in skinny water depth to private anchorages that you can simply wade ashore! The combination of the highest quality marine materials and hardware, together with advanced building techniques, produce a lightweight composite assembly that is capable of handling offshore conditions and will remain trouble free for years with a minimum of effort. The covered cockpit area is superior with all weather enclosure that allows visability all around not found on other cats!
