| Flat sailing in 20 knots of breeze, reaching at 8-9 knots, cool summer drinks resting on the cockpit table no cup holders needed, nor a drop spilled, while the chef cooks in the galley. |
Sailing flat on a catamaran has definite advantages!
FRIENDLY WAVE is an extremely comfortable and fun cruising catamaran that is ideal for single-handed sailing, with all sails managed from the cockpit.
Prouts are well known for their strength and the seaworthiness to cross every ocean.
They are designed with a relatively small, easy to handle mainsail, which is raised and lowered from the cockpit, along with a large furling genoa.
Friendly Wave is also equipped with an asymmetrical spinnaker in a spinnaker sock for ease of handling, along with a staysail on a Schaefer roller furler.
This catamaran features a master cabin forward, featuring a queen size bed, panoramic windows and an en-suite head and sink.
Aft are two double cabins, each with a hanging closet, drawers, numerous cubbies for storage, three opening hatches, a reading light and a fan.
The well laid out galley in the starboard hull features a deep stainless-steel sink, single handle pullout faucet with sprayer, saltwater tap, a triple burner propane stove, and a propane wall oven and broiler.
There is lots of storage for dishes, cups, wine glasses, food and beverages behind sliding plexiglass.
It is perfect for cooking gourmet meals aboard, while watching the sunset from the enormous side windows.
Central in the boat is the salon.
Featuring new cushions and a dropdown table, it seats six.
It is equipped with LED reading lamps and a fan, with a large hatch above for perfect ventilation.
One is afforded excellent views from the salonís banquet seating through the oversized eyelevel windows.
The port hull contains the nav station which features a full-size chart table and fold out seating.
There is lots of storage here for linens, extra life jackets, etc.
Forward there is the main head, featuring an electric toilet, propane hot water heater, sink and additional storage for your beach chairs, beach umbrella, inflatable mats and other beach toys.
Throughout the yacht there is beautiful book-ended wood paneling and a teak and holly sole in the salon and nav station areas.
The large cockpit provides plenty of seating and lounging space.
On the wide aft deck there are two comfortable new deck chairs and a cockpit table for your dining or snacking pleasure.
Just the place to enjoy your morning coffee or the afternoon cocktail hour, while taking in beautiful water views.
There is also a cockpit shower to spray off the saltwater after a swim or to just cool off.
The new Pioneer Blue Tooth and Sirius stereo along with new Polk Audio speakers provides for your listening pleasure.
Proutís solid foredeck design provides a flat stable safe platform to handle anchoring in any sea conditions.
There is a new Mantus anchor along with plenty of new chain, 250 feet of 8 plait braided line and a fore-deck washer to spray it all off.
It is also the place to put out the mats and lay out in the sun while at anchor or underway.
You will sail Friendly Wave in the company of good friends.
A day on the water, surrounded by the calm and freedom that you experience on a cruising cat, with a nice glass of wine and a well-filled cooler-the makings of a perfect day.
Both the interior as well as the deck will give you plenty of space for these purposes.
Despite its considerable size, the yacht draws only two and a half feet of water, so you can get into shallow waters to anchor near to beaches that few venture so close to with a boat of this size.
