About this Boat

Full Monty is a tried and true cruising catamaran that is ready to take your family across distant horizons.  Her current owners have sailed her through the coastal waters of the US, to the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal, as far north as Alaska, through many island chains of the South Pacific, and back to the US.  She has proven herself in all sorts of seas and sailing conditions.  She is the perfect boat for any buyer looking for a comfortable and capable family cruising catamaran at an affordable price.

The hull of the Privilege 482-S was built with the objective of comfort and security.  Therefore, Full Monty is a very solidly built catamaran that carries her weight well and sails nicely, especially in winds over 15kts. She has been lovingly maintained and will provide her next owner with many more years of comfortable and safe cruising.  She would also make a great candidate for an owner-operated charter business!

 The "S" model of the Privilege 482 was based on a modification that the builders made to the hull design in 1993.  This modification was done in order to improve the sailing qualities of the vessel compared to the older models of the 482.  In 1994 the stern scoops were extended and the vessel was rechristened the Privilege 51.
