The Maldives design is rarely the smallest/cheapest catamaran with 2 x realistic double berths. Standing headroom in the salon is achieved through having a 'pop top' and she exhibits good bridge deck clearance. Whilst being accommodation friendly she shows amazingly good performace. this boat really can sail well!

The Maldives is a nimble and seaworthy design which is often off the radar for many buyers because they think the good bridgedeck clearance comes at a cost of salon headroom and the outboard is not as attractive as twin diesels.
This boat has not compromised on common sense, the pop-top gives the headroom and the o/board means no drag when sailing and no fuel/oil smell in the acommodation!
The owners are selling due to age and having 'fulfilled the dream'. They have extensively cruised the central Mediterranean and looked after this boat. By way of future improvements, she could use a holding tank installation, and maybe replacing the mainsail and Zodiac in a few years.
She will appeal to a sporty couple who like the performance and racy looks of the fine design.
