Whisp is setup ready to live aboard and/or cruise. She is an excellent entry-point vessel, solidly built and reliable having recently spent the last six months cruising New Caledonia and Vanuatu, sailed single-handedly by her present owner. Before that her life was spent cruising the east coast of Australia with a live-aboard couple. There is nothing to spend to sail away.
Whisp has been extensively upgraded in 2017 with the latest Raymarine navigation and autohelm equipment, new Simrad VHF and AIS and a massive 650 watts of solar power. Re-rigged in November 2017 with new running rigging added in May 2019, she was recently anti-fouled in November 2019 with her interior refurbished (even her tender was replaced in May 2019).
The catamaran is airy and cool down below with multiple hooded portholes and hatches, so there’s lots of cross breezes even in tropical rain. Ample cabin and bunk space and a fully fitted-out galley deliver a carefree and enjoyable life aboard for a couple or individual.
A full suite of sails (including spinnaker and screecher), a whopping 800 litres of fresh water, economical 21hp Nanni diesels, 75 metres of anchor chain and a full inventory of spares ensure she is a boat comprehensively set up for cruising.
