Harmony is a professional built Schionning Wilderness 1650 that was completed by Custom Marine in Knysna, RSA to be its boat show centerpiece. The craftsmanship and construction quality are excellent. The interior is refined and comfortable with great visibility. The epoxy/frp/carbon reinforced hull make her a fast and durable cruiser with max sustained speeds in the 15-20 knt range.

She was designed with the idea of an ideal blend of great performance and grand luxury with a beam to length ratio of 13:1 coupled with high bridgedeck clearance guarantees that this boat performs exceptionally well, especially if the weight is kept sensible.

Harmony is a proven world traveler having visited Madagascar, Mozambique, and Namibia, then crossed the South Atlantic, and on to Brazil, the Caribbean, Bahamas, and the Eastern USA. She has been well maintained by her current owners and just returned from an extended season in New England.

She underwent a major refit in 2017 including 12kWh LiFePO4 batteries; then significant improvements in 2023 including new standing rig by US Spars, all new Victron and Garmin electronics, new SunPower eFlex solar panels, new Slipstream folding stainless steel props, EZ2CY dodger, salon and cockpit cushions. The engines were professionally rebuilt in 2017 as a preventative measure having sat unused for several years. They have just under 1200 hours each and are in very good condition.

The long waterline length with centralized weight and long fore and aft overhangs, loads of buoyancy including reserves high up forward in the hulls, a moderate rig and easily driven hulls, she has every desirable feature, making her extremely safe and an excellent design choice.

The accommodation volume is by no means on the small side, this is a big boat with the volume to suit. The layout can suit either a couple who don't want to compromise, using the volume to suit only themselves or alternatively, choose a layout to suit the whole family and accommodate everyone in comfort. The saloon and cockpit are very airy and spacious with all-round visibility, the bulkhead between, opened up as much as possible giving the feeling of one large indoor/outdoor area. This makes both areas feel much bigger than they would individually. With the wide beam, we have the luxury of a separate navigation station in the saloon.

In the cockpit the helm is set to one side leaving a nice open feel. This keeps the cockpit clean and uncluttered with plenty of space. On both sides of the cockpit the boat has incorporated generous sized day-beds, for couples this works well with the helm right next to the starboard day-bed. The shade-top is designed as a 'T' top with blinds that fill in the gaps, if shade is required, but great for the winter days when the sun is sought after.

The saloon is spacious enough to include comfortable seating, a nice navigation table and also a generous sized galley, with ample room for a full fridge and freezer and plenty of bench space for preparation. The rest of the accommodation offers two huge state cabins forward, with their own private lounge area. The aft cabin is also separate with a smaller lounge. All double bunks are island beds, leaving a space either side, giving a very spacious feel to the bunk area. There are two heads on board, the main head and shower is set centrally in the starboard hull. In the port hull aft there is a separate head and shower. This is mainly for the owners cabin, more of an en-suite but a huge one.

The Wilderness 1650 is a light, fast cruising cat with all the luxury included in the package. She is light on her feet and a pleasure to sail. Windward performance is excellent, with her long hulls and lean cabin, she has the safety and speed to be driven hard and yet retain some of the feel of a light easily handled smaller cat. Whether youre after comfort or speed, the Wilderness 1650 blends both together brilliantly.

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.

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.
