Simpson Inspiration 11 "Namaste"
Fast, safe and very, very comfortable, Roger Simpson designed cats have proven the equal of the finest cruising catamarans in their class and “Namaste” is one of the finest examples. Well built, beautifully maintained and comprehensively equipped. The rig is simple and easy to handle with sail trim managed from the cockpit. The twin 20 hp Beta engines (new 2017) power “Namaste” through the chop economically and efficiently (conservative cruising range is approx. 700 nm). The cockpit with hardtop (slide hatch opens over helm) is a great space, safe and dry. Inside, from the bridge deck/saloon to the port and starboard accommodation spaces there is great natural light and ventilation. The skipper can run the boat from the comfort of the saloon with clever 'swing away' instruments and a removable helm chair. To starboard is the nav station, bathroom and private double cabin. The magnificent galley is to port. There are two private double cabins forward and aft. “Namaste” is a rare and special vessel. CALL Paul to arrange an INSPECTION.
