S/V Double Exposure is a Florida based PDQ 36 catamaran SOLD!!

The S/V Double Exposure is a PDQ 36 Capella Classic. This is a well-built nimble-sailing cruising catamaran which was designed for families instead of charter companies. Overall, 99 PDQ 36s have been built , making it one of the most successful cruising catamarans manufactured in North America.

The superb design of the PDQ 36 creates a stunning, airy interior offering privacy, a gracious entertaining area, and two luxurious staterooms complete with queen-size beds. She is the ideal size for single-handing, perfect for family cruising, or two couples on a holiday. Every PDQ is hand-crafted with custom-fitted cabinetry, incorporating the finest cherry veneers, teak accents and three coats of varnish throughout. The PDQ 36 is constructed of the highest grade, 100 per cent vinylester resins, biaxial knitted fabrics with Klegecell coring fused together under vacuum pressure. The yacht is built with tremendous structural integrity, designed for severe sea conditions. She has six watertight flotation tanks fore and aft offering unparalleled buoyancy and safety. All sheets, halyards, and reefing lines lead to the protected cockpit, for ease of handling. A PDQ will sit upright on her keels and rudders for convenient storage, a bottom scrub, or beaching. Enjoy the near absence of heeling, feel the confidence of great stability no matter how fast she's sailing.

"Double Exposure" has been completely upgraded and is in excellent cruise-ready condition. She has a larger 12.5 capacity Spectra water maker, Yamaha engines that are STILL under warranty, a new trampoline, new safety line, the 6002 model autopilot (refurbished by Raymarine), new interior upholstery, custom wood screens on all the hatches, 200 feet of high strength 5/16th chain (2014) with a 44 lb manson anchor, EIGHT Trojan 220 amp batteries (upgraded from the normal 4 battery bank), 540 watts of solar, a 400 watt wind generator, an AB ribbed dinghy with a trunk and 15 hp Yamaha engine, a three burner stove with oven, new refrigeration. The head and all hoses have been replaced. The mainsail, genoa and spinnaker were all recently checked over by South Sails are all in excellent condition. We moved two of the solar panels that were on the hard bimini to the back of the boat and added a bench underneath.

Last season, we had navy blue sunbrella cushions made for the bench and a sunshade made to go between the hard bimini and the solar panels. We also installed a new cockpit table (removable when under sail) and new cockpit cushions, we sent the Spectra 300 Clark Pump back to Spectra in California and had it rebuilt, we installed a new Raymarine C80 GPS and radar dome and installed a new aluminium gas tank. The rigging was completely inspected in October, 2014. Completing a total systems refit.

This is a well-maintained, well-appointed PDQ36 with all the comforts of home. Any modifications we have made to the boat are easily removable with little to no changes to the original condition of the boat. "Double Exposure" is strong and safely built by experienced boat builders to the design of a professional engineer using the best quality materials.
