This is Awesome.  And truly she is.  Everybody says so.  Every time we dock or someone kayaks between her hulls we hear them exclaim it . . . Awesome!. . . and then they see the name on the transom.  After 8 years of ownership, thousands of sea miles, and 5 years of living aboard I have to agree!  Awesome is a Malcolm Tennant designed canoe-stern power catamaran designed to cross oceans with aplomb.  She was built in New Zealand, crossed through Panama to Florida on her own bottom, and explored the Caribbean and East coasts of North and South America.  Then she went back through Panama and up the West Coast to Washington State for a substantial refit.  After refitting, she has been a wonderful liveaboard home and Northwest exploration vehicle for all of Puget Sound, the Inside Passage, and SE Alaska.  She is truly a world cruising catamaran and an excellent liveaboard – especially for families with children.

Awesome is of foam core, epoxy, fiberglass, and Kevlar composite construction.  She is powered by twin Yanmar 420 hp engines that propel her at an economical 17 knot fast cruise, a very economical 9 knot loping cruise, and a top speed of 23 knots. Awesome is sleek and stable.  She will run over a 4′ chop at 17 knots like it isn’t even there.  She can cruise Seattle to Ketchikan in 3 days running only daylight hours.  She can return to Seattle on the same tank of fuel (she carries 2000 gallons).  Perhaps you’ve seen her go by – offering twice the space, twice the speed, and burning half the fuel of other comparable power boats.  Awesome has a completely protected panoramic flybridge helm with space for a dozen people (and a flybridge convertible bunk for lazy Summer evenings).  She has an expansive aft deck that can seat another dozen or be actively sport fished.  She has an interior helm inside her huge saloon with a gourmet galley.  And she is an owner’s version to starboard (there is even a tub down in the owner’s head) with two additional guest cabins to port.

Awesome has been substantially refit including professional paint renewal from keels to RADAR arch with durable Awlgrip two-part polyurethane.  She has had many systems refit and renewed in the past 8 years (see the extensive list in her specifications).  My family is ready to return to a sailing cat now that my daughter (who grew up onboard) is old enough to be lashed to the mast.  Since this is a broker-owned boat, partial trades will be considered (especially performance sailing catamarans).  Awesome enjoys much sought after urban end-tie moorage in two Puget Sound locations and either slip may transfer.  Either slip could also be liveaboard again.  This is an Awesome situation for an Awesome cruising couple or family.  She is much less costly than a home on land in the Northwest and she can be your home in the Northwest or anywhere in the world.  And Awesome is already named after your wife!  What are you waiting for?
