About

Sol Searching is a great example of a consistently maintained and lovingly upgraded Leopard 42. She began her life in the Moorings fleet. The present owners are the second owners after leaving the Moorings and have owned and cruised her since 2013. They have enjoyed sailing between Georgia, Florida, the Bahamas, the Eastern Caribbean and Grenada. Sol Searching is nicely equipped and ready to take you where your heart desires.

The 39 hp Yanmar diesel engines have received regular maintenance. The transmission is a Kanzaki KM3A1. The engines are direct drive with straight shafts, not sail drives. The propellers are 3 blade fixed. The starboard side transmission was replaced in 2020. Most of the standing rigging was replaced in 2018. The main sail is a 2007 full batten Quantum and has been sailed lightly. The 2019 furling genoa has also been lightly used. The helm electronics were all replaced in 2014 and are Garmin. These include multi-function displays at the helm and the nav. station, depth finder, anemometer, autopilot, radar and AIS. Sol Searching is equipped with an Icom VHF, a West Marine VHF and an Icom Single Side Band radio. It has 5 - 130w Kyocera solar panels, a 400w Air Marine wind generator, and a 2020 NextGen 3.5 generator. Sol Searching has a Rocna 22kg anchor with 200 feet of 3/8" chain and a Lofrans Tigress 1200w windlass.

For cruising comfort, she is equipped with Corian counters, a Force 10 2-burner stove/oven, a Sea Frost refrigerator and freezer as well as 2 Cruisair air conditioners. The owners have converted one head to a laundry room with a washer and one head to a clothing closet. These converted heads can be returned to traditional heads by the next owner, if desired. One head is electric and one head is manual. The cockpit has a full set of lower cushions.

The vessel conveys with a 2018 ZAR mini 11DL dinghy and 2013 Yamaha 15 hp outboard. The vessel will convey with an inventory of spares and some tools. The owner's personal items, some of which are in the photos, will not be included in the transaction.

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
