Conceived, designed and built as a liveaboard, blue water cruising catamaran, Papillon has proven herself by completing a ten year 48,000 nm circumnavigation. Following an extensive refurbishment, this exceptionally well-maintained yacht is offered for sale to an adventurous new master.
Papillon was custom designed by Crowther Multihulls, Pty. in Australia and constructed at Advanced Multihulls in Florida. The vessel was conceived from the beginning as a safe, comfortable, easy-to-sail, liveaboard vessel, built to high standards, enabling travel anywhere in the world. She is a true owner’s blue water cruising yacht with comfortable accommodations for children and guests.
High quality materials including Core-Cell structural foam, various E-glass reinforcements, Hydrex-100 vinylester resin and West Systems epoxy were used throughout. Structural components and furniture were vacuum bagged to optimize resin loading and adhesion. GRP structural members throughout the vessel add strength and stiffness, reassuring when the seas kick up.
Papillon sports a strong and powerful rig and sail plan. The B&R rig is supported with Dyform wires. The mast is pre-bent and slightly raked. Support is derived from upper and lower shrouds and the forestay. Due to the B&R rig design, a backstay is not required. Wire terminations are Norseman-Gibb. A full suite of cruising sails in good to new condition is included.
Papillon is equipped with virtually everything needed for world cruising. In our website’s pages, you’ll see photos and read descriptions of everything from design features to actual construction images to equipment details to how she sails to life aboard. Please visit us at www.worldcruisingcat.com
