S/V Angel Louise is a North Carolina based 1987 Catalac 12M for sale by owner

This Boat Owner requires financial settlement only ... trades will not be considered!!

S/V Angel Louise is an actively cruising 1987 Catalac 12M now in Vero Beach for sale by owner. It is not a happy day for us to list our pride & joy. USSV Angel Louise is the 2nd to last Catalac 12 Meter (41 foot) Catamaran built by the Tom Lack family in England and she's the first vessel in world history to do both the American & European Great Loops along with 2 double handed Atlantic crossings & cruising to 49 countries on shores of 5 continents. Home Port Cruz Bay and currently cruising from FL to Maine w/ stops along the way. Temporarily at New Bern, NC.

We will allow her to be bought out from under us in this 13th year of continuous cruising.

S/V Angel Louise was built for the North Sea and all the worlds oceans - the Catalac Catamaran is strong but definitely not the fastest catamaran ever built. She is not a beauty queen but will see harbors and countries of the world lighter built pricier dock queens never get to. These British built boats were built for safety when early cats had flipped in high winds. The builder is reputed to have offered £20,000 pounds sterling if anyone could get a keel out of the water - many tried but no one could do it.

Powered by two relatively new - 37hp Yanmar 3JH5e engines, with a straight shaft to her 3 bladed props. Raymarine networked electronics, AIS & Radar, and autopilot connected to both inside and outside helms. 2 separate VHFs (1 with back-up passive AIS). Has large efficient refrigeration /freezer system, 3 burner stove & oven. Large 23” LED TV with connections to stream video. HiFi Sound system to all cabins & cockpit.

Interior layout is functional - no fiberglass inside. Walk straight thru vessel - only 2 small steps to lower levels & private cabins access. Large light interior cabin.

She has a full set of sails. Both front furling & upgraded behind the mast FACNOR system for safe in cockpit sailing installed by Mack Sails. Additionally, we have supplied Angel Louise with an alternate 2nd replacement mast so she is interchangeably able to be fitted & used alternately as a Sailing Cat or as a Power Cat. (Her strong 3 cyl Yanmar diesels propel her faster than sails in most conditions). Sailing without stressing Angel Louise we regularly easily achieve 125-130 mile days sailing in the North Atlantic.

Electric head starboard and pvc connections to holding tank, with connected Raritan hold & treat type 1 MSD. 4 Large sea-worthy hatches open forward for great ventilation. Canvass covers for shade when at anchor. Equipped with 4 anchors - Spade, Bruce & 2 Fortresses plus chain.

Davron Dinghy-tow system and large AB aluminum RIB w/ 15 hp Yamaha 2 cycle OB motor are optional.

This vessel had extensively upgraded epoxy treatment years ago to protect hull from blistering. Safe high stainless rails all around vessel. Last surveyed for insurance company in 2014 and valued at $140,000 at that time. Accepted & insurance coverage by Pantaenius Insurance by us. We are willing to discount our price for new owner’s sweat equity updating with varnish & ongoing maintenance. Angel Louise is a big strong vessel that is an active cruiser, not a dock queen.

House power supplied from 8 Group 31 AGM batteries, which are maintained by 5 rail mounted solar panels and a large D-400 wind generator.

We have tried to price her fairly with a discount so she can go immediately to a new owner without delay. We are willing to talk. We continue to cruise this strong vessel. Full & additional details on request. We are at Vero Beach municipal marina as of March 2020, cruising slowly North up the North Atlantic Ocean coast.
