Norseman 400 - “Shangaan ”

Norseman 400 - “Shangaan ”


COMFORTABLE, SPACIOUS AND FAST! "Shangaan" (a Tsonga tribe in South Africa) was designed by Alexander Simonis and built by Norseman Marine of South Africa. This yacht is a strong, fast, offshore cruising catamaran or luxury condo at anchor.

GALLEY - Well-ventilated & efficient, two sinks, plenty of counter space & storage
SALON - Spacious and comfortable with a table that moves out for ease in seating guests
DECK - Lots of seating with a custom, removable table with a hard Bimini
CABINS - Four double Pullman-style staterooms with separate entry from the salon for privacy. Walk-through access to the two heads, one berth doubles as a work room.
STORAGE - Large closets at the bottom of the stairs for storing linen and spare parts.
Used as a winter escape for the last 10 years and meticulously cared for her by her current owners, this yacht would be an excellent choice for private living or charter service. Already located in the Caribbean, the brokers are on island and ready to show you the catamaran of your dreams!
