Building and history

DEAN 440 type fiberglass catamaran, built in 2002 by Dean Catamarans shipyards in South Africa, according to designs by Peter Dean.
The current owner sailed from Virginia, Nova Scotia in the summer of 2017, back south to the Bahamas towards end of that year. Then she sailed around in the Carribean until she passed through the Panama Canal in October 2019. In March 2020 she has made the jump from Ecuador to Polynesia. Throughout the whole voyage she was continously maintained and improved by the owner, who is a professional engineer. She is now for sale with everything on board, i.e. it is fully equipped for live-aboard. Just pack your hand luggage and sail away.
The owner offers a full week’s training or more, if necessary.
