Rarely seen in marinas James Wharram catamaran are designed to sail all around the world in safety and on a budget.

In the mid 50's, based on his research into ancient Polynesian boat design, James Wharram built the first off-shore Catamaran in Britain and sailed it out into the Atlantic. While the world's yachting community were still dismissing such a design as a worthy sea-going vessel, James was landing his 23'6" 'Double Hulled Canoe' called TANGAROA in the West Indies

This PAHI Captain Cook has been build with a unique cabin normaly not find on this model.
The cabin give a large and comfortable living place with a 360 view of the sea around and protected from sun and rain.

This catamaran is in good sailing condition and stored on the dry. Ready to go aro und the world.

Check the Wharram owner forum 1.and forum 2 and the Wharram world.

With the present owner this boat has sail from the Indian ocean to South Africa and all over the Carribean proven to be a safe and seaworthy vessel.

Note from the owner:
Built in Reunion, by professional builders (French island) in 1999 with beams constructed from native "La Natte" redwood and high quality marine ply.  We have sailed 20,000 miles across Indian, North and South Atlantic, Mediterranean and Caribbean seas in summer and winter. Our Pahi is unique in offering a insulated cabin that is a 5th berth as well. It gives full protection from sun, rain and cold and a 360 degree view from within when sailing. We sleep in this cabin when sailing. It also provides shelter for when hand steering outside, though we have two autopilots that we prefer to use. Our vessel also has water catchment on the roof that can collect 300 liters of rain water in one tropical downpour.
The dingy is marine ply and glass and has a mast and sail for sailing around the bays. It is great fun to sail and row in this tender. We have a small engine but rarely use it, preferring the quiet of rowing and sailing.
We hauled out our vessel last year in Trinidad. From below the waterline we stripped back to the fiberglass, applied new primer and reapplied antifouling.
We have lived aboard for four years in great comfort and style, with our unique cabin providing the central living area we love so much. Our vessel is well maintained and ready to sail. New owners would need only to pack some clothes
