Rates source:
This catamaran for sale by owner is a Parlay 40 cruising catamaran. She is priced for a quick sale and features four double cabins each with private head and a Galley up configuration. The boat was built in Durban, South Africa according to the techniques used for the construction of cruising catamarans. The hulls are built in sandwich with foam core and GRP Composite.

This performance orientated cruising catamaran, designed by Alex Simonis, has proven her metal having crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice. Once through the southern ocean going as far South as Tristan da Cunha. On her return to Cape Town she then went on to cruise the Indian Ocean.

She has a large cockpit with a new solid bimini, and is complete with cockpit dining table. Access to the saloon is thru large glass double doors. A removable serving hatch allows good flexibility when entertaining your guests. The spacious saloon has a custom built table with wrap-around seating overlooking the aft deck. The galley is "U" shaped with plenty of work surfaces. The 2 fridges and large freezer unit are ample for most situations. The saloon is surrounded by large windows giving a light airy feel. With regards to accommodation she has a traditional 4 cabin / 4 head, layout. The berths are a generous size. In short ... she is sleek, fast, spacious and in good condition. Please email through this site with any questions on the boat.

Extras: Inflatable tender; outboard engine 9,9 cv

  • sail drive control oil in November 2016;
  • replacement hydraulic steering gear pipes: port 2013, starbord 2015
  • impellers, engine port, in June 2015;
  • replacing both propellers October 2014
  • In July 2015 we have replaced the rigging of the mainsail and spinnaker.
  • We gave the antifouling regularly t-o the boat once a year. The last time was in July 2015.
  • Four solar panel and wind generator installed in 2012.
  • replacement piston hydraulic steering: port 2013

Work To be done

The boat was in the water for three years so I suggest a general check. With regard to the emergency equipment, the EPIRB is working as well the liferaft and flares.

Then there are some repairs to be done:

--the freezer is not working (you need to change the 12 volts compressor)

--Radar antenna cable came off.

--I also suggest you to change the system of sewage. It all works but it would be better to eliminate the internal sewers that require constant maintenance.

The owner of the boat is a company based in Seychelles. During all charters we had on board a professional skipper and our deckhand.
