Dolphin 460 - “MUSE ”

Dolphin 460 - “MUSE ”

We sold Muse new to her first owner who took delivery of her in Brazil and sailed her to the Caribbean where he used her each Winter. He then stored her on the hard during hurricane season in Puerto Rico. Her current, second owners, have done the exact same thing the past three years. Grandkids in California now call them back to duty.

Muse is a very well equipped Dolphin 460, perfectly suited to continue doing what she has done so well for the past few years. She has a Single Side Band Radio, Solar Panels, Air conditioning, watermaker, folding props, spinnaker, and a full Raymarine system - radar, autopilot, and chart plotter with charts for the Caribbean and Bahamas.

Muse is a super-clean owners version, with very light use, and with a dedicated starboard hull for her owners and port hull with two cabins. She has very low mileage on her engines and generator, and all brand new standing and running rigging, as well a new genoa and furler. To learn all about this fantastic Dolphin catamaran, visit our website to see all the press features, or call us to learn more. Dolphin Catamarans have sustained their value better than any other catamaran on the market due to their quality and the limited supply of daggerboarded performance voyagers. After three glorious seasons in the Caribbean, the owners of this fine catamaran are nearing the end of their cruise and look forward to resuming their sailing life on the San Francisco Bay, close to the grandkids!
