Red Beans is just back from a winter in the Bahamas!This 3 cabin/2 head boat is ready to go cruising again.Over the past 18 years, the current owner has made several trips on Red Beans from his hometown in NY to Exuma.He spent many of those years living aboard Red Beans in the Exumas. Since returning to NY the owner has been removing his personal items and making the boat tidy.Red Beans is ready to start your next adventure!

Red Beans is a great cruising catamaran that offers a balance of live aboard comfort with sailing performance.An air draft of 57 allows transit of the ICW, but also enough sail area to power the boat in light winds. The sail wardrobe consists of a new full batten main sail, roller furling head sails (recently reconditioned), stay sail, and a spinnaker.Two large anchors, a powerful windlass, and lots of chain/rode keep this cat safely anchored in strong blows.The cockpit is secure, yet comfortable and is an ideal place to keep kids or pets safe while sailing.There is a new bimini providing plenty of shade.A BBQ and plenty of seating makes the cockpit a great place to lounge while at anchor.Rounding out the exterior are secure davits with integrated solar panels and wind generator that hold the RIB with 15hp outboard.

Red Beans interior offers a beautiful combination of natural light, varnished wood, and opening hatches/ports for ventilation.The bridge deck cabin offers large U shaped seating with ample table space to feed the crew plus guests.To starboard is a navigation area that provides a large chart table, vhf, and electrical panel.

The port hull has a single cabin aft, galley amidships, master cabin forward, and head in the bow.Of note is the large stainless food prep area and sink, 3 burner propane cooktop and oven.The galley is a great space for those who enjoy eating well while living afloat!

The starboard hull has a utility room aft that houses the hot water heater, inverter, charger, and space for tool storage. Amidships is a large workspace and plenty of storage for spares.Forward is a master cabin and head/shower in the bow.

Although not common on this side of the world, Simpson is a highly regarded naval architect from Australia.Simpson Designs are known to produce practical yet efficient multihulls.The hulls are constructed via the strip plank method using Durakore, System 3 Epoxy, and 18oz bi-directional fiberglass.The original owner/builder sold the boat after a trip to the Bahamas and local use to the current owner.Red Beans has been lovingly cared for over the past 18 years by the current owner.Putting his baby on the market is weighing heavy on his heart, but grandkids and homes in NY and the Bahamas require his attention.Dont miss this special opportunity to sail away on a ready to go cruising cat!

We take pride in our happy customers

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

— Jimmy

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.

— JT

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.
