Grainger 38 Cruising Cat "Kitty"
The Grainer 38 cruising catamaran, “Kitty” is all about fast, safe, short-handed cruising in absolute comfort. Under sail, the performance is scintillating. “Kitty” is quite capable of loping along at around 15 knots. A proven coastal cruiser, she has many sea miles under her keels. Her shallow draft and mini-keels allow anchoring in close or even safely beaching (rudders and shafts/props are protected). The cockpit (teak sole) is well sheltered and spacious. From the delightful saloon, the huge galley, to the comfy berths (7 of) “Kitty” offers space (living and storage) for all the family and or the guests. She was well built by Woolwich Marine (project managed by a Master shipwright). Twin 27hp Yanmar engines provide reliable and economical auxiliary power. “Kitty” presents in excellent condition and is ready for you to step aboard and cruise the coast. Catamarans of this quality are rare. Contact Paul 0418 385 866 to arrange an inspection.
