Pandora is one of those very rare, owner version Catana 50's, that has never seen a day of charter and has been impeccably cared for by two very, very experienced owners. This is their second Catana (they owned a 471 prior to purchasing their 50), and they have sailed her all over the South Pacific, to Japan, and then on back to our Seattle office on Bainbridge Island. Upon arriving in Seattle in the late summer they hauled Pandora and went over her with a fine tooth comb, taking care of every little minor detail. She shows just impeccably. She is also, as far as we can tell, the most fully loaded, cruise ready Catana 50's we have ever had the privilege to sell. Take a look at her detailed full specs listing to see how finely and extensively outfitted she is compared to any other Catana 50. To set up a showing of this fine yacht, please contact listings agents Phillip Berman or Matt Dunning.

2 Victron charger/inverters allow Pandora to seamlessly travel and plug into shore power all over the world regardless of frequency of local power sources (50 or 60 Hz).
2 side panels were installed to protect the cockpit seating area during inclement weather.
Sony Bravia 32 in LCD flat screen in included and connected to Catana 50 standard 2 zone Bose Lifestyle sound and DVD system with Acoustimass base. 2 Speakers in cockpit (zone 1) and 5 speakers in bridge deck (zone 2).
In place of the normal vanity in the owners hull we have a set of cabinets for clothes storage, with bookshelves on top as well as overhead bins.
In place of the usual fore, port head they have a very roomy pantry, custom built with removable wood restraints to keep items in place.
Around the bridge deck and in the galley they have added wood fiddles much higher than standard Catana fiddles, again to keep items secure and in place.
Along the hallways there has been fiddles/restraints built in (in wood) so that items such as books can be safely and securely stored above the cabinets.
Standard foulies locker was converted into galley storage and houses the additional freezer.
All the above furniture modification was done by Catana, and so it is up to par with their standard furniture and looks identical.
Spools were installed for extra long dock lines below helm stations. Very useful for tahitian/med-mooring to a breakwater or to the shore.
Custom mosquito screens, including a 3-panel system for the rear window in the bridge deck next to the galley.
Standard Catana50 Ocean Air shades throughout.
This is one of the last 50s to be built with skegs which are invaluable for protecting propellers from objects in the water.
Other items not included above:
2 20 liter light fiberglass propane tanks (American), purchased 2011
2 10 liter light fiberglass propane tanks (American) , purchased 2011
This is the 2nd Catana the sellers have operated. During the build they added details too numerous to list to address the myriad of little issues they know these boats have (for example we had an outlet installed under the settee which allows a computer to be plugged in at the bridge deck table).
Pandora was last measured to weight 16 tons, making Pandora one of the lightest of the first Catana 50 series
The sellers have maintained Pandora scrupulously over the last 3 years with the help of recommended professionals to do the work.. They haul out at the end of each season or long trip to repaint, touch up gel coat and service equipment as well as fix any and every little thing that wears or breaks, from the smallest cabinet hardware on.
Aside from changing the occasional filter, only certified Volvo mechanics have touched our engines and sail-drives. Oil/impeller/filter changes are done on or before schedule on both the engines and the generator. The sellers have re-bedded hatches in the bridge deck to account for sicaflex wear and tear and to make sure they do not leak in the future. They flush and pickle our watermaker religiously to ensure perfect functioning.
They also did an extensive servicing including a costly and thorough cosmetic refinishing in Port Townsend in September 2011. The boat looks and feels like new.
