CatNap is a 1997 three cabin/single head version of the 35' Tobago sailing catamaran built by the famous Fountain-Pajot of France. She is quite spacious, comfortable, and safe on long passages while either under sail or with power from her dependable twin Yanmar diesel engines.
Above deck, control lines are led aft for safety and ease of use for short handed sailing. Below deck, she has exceptional living space and a salon with wraparound seating that provides beautiful panormaic views while sailing or at rest. Also, recently added (2010) reverse cycle Heat/Air Conditioning provides climate comfort for warm weather or off-season use.
Unlike many cruising catamarans, her upwind performance as stated by the Owner provides speeds that equal and exceed that of sailing monohulls and won't become sluggish while carrying a full crew with a complement of cruising inventory. Her well balanced design and conveniences allow her to sail easily and safely "flat" while not displaying any annoying bad habits such as excessive bridge-deck “wave slap” or “pitching”.
She sleeps 6 comfortably in 3 private cabins; in additon each forward cabin has an access door to each crew berth with access to the deck.
With continuous care and upgrades over the Owners last 10 years, she has an updated Raymarine instrumentation package including Autopilot.
Catnap has served her Owners faithfully while they have provided a regular timeline of continuous maintenance. CatNap is staunch, clean and eager to go cruising and please her next Owners since retirement from the Navy has brought about the Owners relocation.

Accommodations & Walkthrough
Upon boarding, the expansive cockpit is quite impressive with it's generous seating and spaciousness. The helm is to starboard with full instrumentation for the dual Yanmar diesel engines and navigation electronics.
The dinghy is hung on davits between the twin hull transoms and may be lowered to the water for safe and easy boarding from the teak covered transom steps. A fresh water shower is also aft for rinsing off while coming from the sea.
From the cockpit through the slider door one immediately steps into a bright and airy salon area with wraparound seating, a large dinette while the gally is off to the starboard side. The large wraparound salon settee and cushions were reupholstered in 2011. Three steps down you'll find a large double berth cabin forward and another aft. Amidship on the starboard side is the head compartment with a shower, vanity, toilet and storage lockers.
Across the salon and down three steps to port is the electric panel immediately to your left while to your right is the VHF and stereo. Forward is a private cabin with a double berth. Two full size pilot style berths, with lighting and a separate access hatch, are located forward of the main berths in each hull.There's generous storage under all berths as well as other areas throughout the boat. Easy access to the engines is through their individual deck hatches on deck for servicing.
