“Margaritaville” is a Schionning 1480 Catamaran built in 1999 by a team led by Brett Schionning of Dura core and Duflex. Since launching she has cruised extensively throughout the South Pacific. She was built with the idea of a fast cruiser able to fit smaller weather windows and out run forecast bad weather. Originally fitted out to accommodate eight but since re-configured to 4 to 6 and turned some of the accommodation into more useful purposes.
The person that will find Margaritaville attractive is one
• Who has some sailing experience and appreciates a strong, well-built, locally produced boat that is reasonably straightforward to sail and ready for immediate delivery.
• Who appreciates speed and efficiency without sacrificing comfort.
• Is keen to have a live aboard home on the water that is Australian and Qld registered and ready to sail internationally immediately.
• Who appreciates the security of a well-built boat and the confidence that she will take them anywhere with the best safety margins.
The boat is both Queensland and Australian registered and ready to go.
The boat is well equipped for the cruising and live aboard owner, excellent galley, good refrigeration, radios, electronics and autopilot.
The engines, whilst being outboards, are in fact mounted inside the hull and are high thrust 25hp and can be lifted free of the water whilst sailing or at anchor.
Accommodation consists of two queen beds and two passage bunks. The rigging is new 2011 supplied by David Lambourne and accommodated a good selection of current 2011 sails.
This is the boat with just about everything needed for a new owner to step aboard and go!
