S/V Options is a North Carolina based 2008 Admiral 40 catamaran for sale by owner

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

S/V Options is a Admiral 40 Executive, which has three cabins with double berths, and 2 heads with showers. The Owner's suite features a master stateroom, desk/vanity and large private head and occupies the starboard hull, while the double guest cabins and second head fill the port hull.

The Owner has the entire starboard hull: cabin aft, vanity with mirror amidships and large head forward. Head has plenty of room in front of sink and toilet, plus a separate, large shower compartment with Plexiglas door.

Outside and interior comfort are first-rate. The cockpit features cushions throughout, with large sunbathing cushions on either side of the cockpit. The two-person helm seat features a custom-designed footrest. By standing on the broad footrest, a short person can see very well, with their head almost to the ceiling; a tall person can fold up the footrest and stand on the floor.

In the spacious cockpit, the helmsman’s station and comfortable double bench are to starboard and are well protected from spray peeling off the bows at higher speeds by a removable dodger that spans the entire width of the house. The traveler is on the cabin top and the mainsheet then runs to self-tailing, electric winches. The genoa sheets also run port and starboard to cars and self-tailing winches.

The saloon is quite spacious with the galley immediately to port as you enter, and the nav station is just inside the sliding door to starboard. It offers a swing-out stool, which tucks conveniently out of the way underneath. The nav station is well organized while presenting just about every electronic device you can imagine—hence one of the three meanings of the name “Options”. The large, curved dinette is forward to starboard.

Storage space on “Options” is unequaled: Copious storage is available in the forward section of each bow; there are large outside lockers on either side of the mast; each aft cabin has a wall of cabinets on one side and a floor to ceiling cabinet on the other side; the central outside section of the owners’ hull has four floor to ceiling lockers that serve as a closet, pantry and misc. storage, with a vanity and mirror in the middle.

A mast height of 63.5FT allows for bridge clearance on the ICW for those occasional times when the crew is not interested in the roughest of seas.

This a beautiful and well cared for boat, which must be seen.
