The Privilege 495 is perhaps the most comfortable, seaworthy androbust50 foot cruising cat ever built. AFRICA 2 has been in the expert hands of a seasoned, live-aboard couple since 2014. A proven circumnavigator, it has never chartered and has always been maintained with superior care.The interiorcherry veneers, engines and engine rooms are in truly "bristol" condition.Systems are maintained atprecise manufacturerintervals and thehull gelcoats, brightwork are polished and sharp year round. Theyacht cruises in the Bahamas in the winter and is stored on the hard during hurricane season. Please browsethe gallery of recent photos and the walk-thru video.

The boat had a mini-refit this past fall 2022 including all new Raymarine navigation instruments and 12" plotter, new radar, new Raymarine autopilot, new Echo-Tech watermaker, new Lewmar windlass, new enclosure, new mattresses and soft goods. The bottom was painted and running gear serviced.

This is thesought-after owner version with a large king-size bed inthe forward"beam-to-beam" cabinand two guest cabins aft.The galley is up and includes four burner stove, double sink, dishwasher and Corian counter tops. The interioris fitted in a cherry wood veneer that is finished to a high gloss. The owners, whohave ownedotherblue-water mono-hulls, selected this cat to meet the challenges of Atlantic ocean crossings and Caribbean trade-wind conditions.

The yacht has seen limited use and registers just 1800 hours on the twin 75 HP Volvo engines. Allcomfort amenitiesare aboard: large 12KW generator generator (1500 hours), full air conditioning (4 x 16,000 BTU compressors), water-maker, fridge and separate freezer and a washing machine.

Thesail wardrobefeatures durableIncidences Hydranet mainsail and genoa, screecher on separate removeable stay and 2 Parasailors for efficiency and ease of use on long downwind passages. Electric primaries, main halyard/reef and main sail sheet/traveler winches (5 electric winches), allow theowner to run the boatshorthanded with his wife. The hard-top bimini facilitates mainsail accessand handling.

The powerful aluminum Marechal mast is stayed by an upper cap and lower shroud on each side and by a forestay and inner stay (baby-stay) forward. The raised stanchions are higher than the standard allowing for a third row of lifelines. This tough, uncompromising yacht will take your family in complete safety and comfort through the Caribbean or on a circumnavigation.

The dedication to luxury and practical comfort is unequalled on a Privilege cat. The joinery and finish inside are matched only by the caliber and quality of the stainless fittings on deck. The salon and cabins are roomy and light; the cockpit is large and offers easy access to very wide transoms.

Asuperb yacht, one of the finest I have seen. Please contact us to arrange a showing.

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.
