Silver Star is a well-equipped, well made and hard to find Catana C381'Owners' version built in '98.
Key differences you'll find in the owner's version layout include an office setup with desk and bookshelves that can also be setup as a3rd berth using removable custom bunk and bunk cushions. You'll also find a rather large shower and head in the aft portion of the starboard hull.
She is powered by highly reliable 29 HP Yanmar 3YM30FC diesels with Flex-O-Fold props that propel her at 7 knots while sipping 2 - 3 gallons per hour.
Under wind power she nicely sails at 7 - 12 knots in 10 - 20 knot winds and can get up into the teens in 20 knot winds. Fastest sustained speed was 14 knots. Daggerboards enable her to point very well.
The Catana C381 is a performance oriented cruising catamaran that is perfect for those interested in an ocean capable catamaran with daggerboards that when up enable you to get most anywhere on the Chesapeake Bay or Islands.
Silver Star has been continuously refurbished since we acquired her in December '04. Highlights include: a re-power with twin Yanmar 29 HP engines (3YM30FC/SD20 Saildrive) with flex-o-fold props, a new main and tri-radial genny were acquired in 2017 and 2018 respectively, a Cruisair 16,000 BTU AC/Heat system was installed in 2016, three 150 Amp Master Volt Slimline Batteries were added in 2017, Padeyes and bowsprit were added in 2018, an Alder Barbor compressor and condenser plate was added in 2016. Her bottom has been prepped and painted each year with Petit Hyrocoat with all zincs replaced and oils changed each year.
