Robert Perry Perry 43 Passagemaker
About this Boat
The boat is a true bluewater ready catamaran ready to go anywhere in the world. It is a Brian Perry design built for the heavy southern ocean.
The boat is the perfect size to be operated by 2 people, but large enough guests. The helm station is tied into the cabin for inclusion and also protected from the elements. The unique width allows for a large salon, but narrow enough to fit regular shipyard travel lifts. This boat has been meticulously outfitted and never chartered.
The Perry 43 Wavelength is an owner’s version, designed as a strong Southern Ocean blue water sailing catamaran. This boat is a rare find in North America. Wavelength is equipped with AC, generator, watermaker, radar, AIS, Raymarine electronics and more. She is unique with the beam large enough for comfort but narrow enough to find berths and haul out opportunities. The draft is shallow to get into secluded bays but offers strong protection for the running gear and support for beaching. The motors offer high fuel efficiency, but stronger power than most catamarans to allow for speed and power when necessary to handle docking, inlets, or current. The owner's version interior layout blends together privacy and socializing in a way the galley and the helm station are part of the activities. The rear salon offers a great outdoor experience, but also protection for guests and helmsman in foul weather. This boat has been excellently maintained and outfitted, and never chartered. This is a rare turn-key opportunity to start a sailing adventure into the blue.
