This is not an inexpensive catamaran. It is however well priced for any sailor that is considering a new boat purchase without the delays of construction, the expense of high quality upgrades and the inevitable, time consuming issues the must be sorted out with any new boat construction. SIYASINANA is in Beaufort SC until mid Novemeber 2010 and cruising after that.
