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

The Maldives 32 is a great boat, unlike many catamarans she is amazingly fast in light weather, you will have no difficulty keeping up with any cruiser up to 45 feet and yet she is roomy and comfortable. She offers great privacy for two couples or can accommodate a family of five with all the children getting a cabin of their own.

The Maldives 32 was designed and built to cruise placidly through the Canal du Midi or beat to windward through a Biscay gale. With 55m² of sail area this is a fast boat which can hit 9 knots on a reach. She is remarkably comfortable with one head and a large panoramic deck saloon. The galley is situated laterally across the aft part of the saloon area. The liftable roof panel considerably increases headroom in the passageway.

Her styling was way ahead of its time and with her plumb stems she looks right up to date. The twin keels mean that she can be run very economically from a drying mooring and is at home up a muddy creek as she is reaching across the English Channel at over 9 Knots. For the more adventurous she is capable of transiting the Canal de Midi and can therefore reach the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea without crossing Biscay, though she is equally as capable of that.

We have owned Ciel Bleu for fifteen years and have come to love her for both her looks and performance and her practicality. However it is now time for us to move on and we have bought a larger Fountaine Pajot. We are confident that you will find her more appealing internally than any Maldives currently on the market and that her new owners will come to appreciate the many virtues of the design.

She has been fitted out for cross channel rather than long term cruising and has been kept light for fast passage times. During our ownership we have made a number of improvements and have listed them below.
