The Voyage 500 may arguably be considered one of the last of the true bluewater production catamarans ever built. Her quality of construction is second to none and she was built to take her owners anywhere in comfort, safety , and speed. Her graceful design is devoid of trendy front porches, exposed raised helm positions, knuckled hulls, and veneered joinerwork.
PANACHE was last owner’s version Voyage 500 built, and her South African owners oversaw every step of her construction, adding many thoughtful and custom touches throughout, including:
Extended teak swim platform which allows full walking access forward of dinghy.
Custom laundry/storage area in port hull in lieu of standard day head.
Roller furling staysail
Custom cockpit table
Brunton Variable pitch propellers
100l integrated gasoline tank for dinghy fuel
PANACHE has been meticulously maintained to the highest level and every system is in perfect working order.
After a transatlantic crossing and 6 years of cruising the Western Atlantic and the Caribbean, the sellers are ready to move on to other pursuits. You won’t find a better equipped or maintained bluewater cat of this size anywhere
