S/V 'Ventus' is Virginia based 2008 FP Orana 44 catamaran for sale by owner

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

S/V Ventus is a Fountaine Pajot Orana 44 sailing catamaran for sale by owner. She was ordered as a four-cabin version and delivered in Marmaris (Turkey) to her first owner who sailed lightly in Southern Turkey for nine years. The second, and current owners, purchased Ventus in Spring of 2017. The vessel was upgraded adding blue water cruising equipment. This boat has never been chartered.

In early 2017 we found Ventus for sale in Turkey. On inspection, we found the boat in practically new condition and were very impressed with all she offered for our family’s sail plan.

The boat was hauled out in the Marmaris Yacht Marine yard and prepared for an extensive cruise by the trade winds. All new bowsprit, anchor, trampoline, dinghy (with custom chaps), water maker, solar array/MPPT and stainless-steel frame were added, along with other comfort features such as a television and washing machine.

Since the summer of 2017 we have been underway across the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, and Caribbean with Ventus. The boat was stored ashore in the Power Boats, Chaguramas, Trinidad boat yard for the 2018 hurricane season where additional outfitting was completed. The boat had a new bottom job, refinished gelcoat, refinished cockpit door frame, salon upholstery, sail drive seals, grill, lithium-ion house battery bank, and anchor chain.

We are live aboards, and our goal is to move out of the Hurricane zone before hurricane season. The boat is currently in Newport, Rhode Island, but we will begin to move southh in the next couple of months. The ultimate destination will be the Chesapeake in August.

Ventus’s Manufacture description
SAILING QUALITIES:
Ventus, or the Orana 44, is a cruising catamaran with good sailing performance. Her downwind sail (Code-D) permits her to achieve 9 knots with ease and comfort in 15 to 18 knots of wind. With 20+ knots of wind, the boat achieves 10 knots without being pushed. A direct access to the 3-place helm seat offer very good visibility behind which there is a reclining solarium. All controls lead to the helm for an easier and safer boat and sail handling.

A superb bluewater cruising catamaran built by one of the most well renowned yards for this type of boat offering a well-equipped layout with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. The cockpit features a large table seating 8 and open directly through a large sliding door on the same level to the saloon and the galley with a panoramic view through wrap around windows. This boat will take you in considerable style, security and comfort wherever you want to go. Built with long term cruising in mind she is built to last with everything well-constructed and heavy deck gear throughout, she is capable of proving all the comfort you want from a cruising catamaran with good sailing performance to match.

ACCOMMODATION:
There are two accommodation plans, this boat has 4 cabins, each with it's own head. Each hull has a bulkhead about 2m back from the bow; an excellent safety feature.

The interior is light and bright. The saloon is a nice place to be, with panoramic views, white moldings and light timber trim. The cabins, too, are roomy. The owner's cabin, aft in the starboard hull, has the berth mounted across the boat, beneath the molding, which provides the raised steering platform. The furniture is not bonded to the hull, which provides easy access to the electronics and equipment.

The galley is wide, set near the sliding door for easy access to the cockpit. The 180L fridge is excellent, with a piano-style top-loading lid and sliding mesh trays so you can find what you want without rummaging. The integral freezer holds 30L, and an extra 90L independent freezer has been installed. The chart table with excellent outside view is facing forward.

The helmsman's seat holds three, and the raised helm position provides excellent view on all four corners. All the winches and controls are led here for easy single-handing. Behind the helm is a sun bed. Alongside it, is a seating and storage bench. The cockpit is spacious with a large table sitting easily eight.

Simplicity is the Orana 44's theme. The boat lacks for nothing but everything has been carefully and stylishly designed. A good example is the dinghy davits, two struts projecting from the cockpit molding.

PERFORMANCE:
The Orana's solar diagram, the designer's performance predictors, shows that in 20 knots of wind this boat will do 6 knots at 40 degrees. The nature of cruising cats is shown by the fact that if you ease away only 10 degrees, boat speed tops 8 knots, and by the time you hit 90 degrees you have 10 knots on the clock.

How does she do in a blow? The boat will be happy beating into a breeze of 25-35 knots, with the mainsail traveler eased well down the track, two reefs in the mainsail, the mainsheet hard on to keep the mainsail steady, and about a third of the jib unfurled, with little pounding of waves on the underside of the bridgedeck.

The clearance (between the water's surface and the bridgedeck's underside) is 78cm, which seems to be an unofficial industry standard, although as Mark says, the effectiveness of the clearance depends on the buoyancy of the hulls. Skinny hulls may rise slower to a wave, and thus expose the bridgedeck to slamming, than a more buoyant hull which would tend to rise faster to a swell.

A LIGHT TOUCH:
The Orana 44 is roomy and comfortable without being a caravan. It is also fun to sail as it feels and handles like a light boat. As to that distribution of volume, which I mentioned earlier, the Orana is spot-on. There is plenty of room below and in the saloon, but the cockpit too is a great space.

You can imagine spending a lot of time on board, enjoying the one-level living that cats are so good at. Boat buyers like the idea of the kitchen, living area and cockpit all being on the same level.
