NAUTICAT, an Admiral 38 Executive catamaran, is one of the best equipped luxury cruising catamarans for sale on the market today. She is in ready-to-sail away-condition and always professionally maintained. Privately owned and never chartered, she has low engine hours and features considerable cruiser extras such as Solar Panels, Spectra watermaker, wind generators, Inverter, Gel batteries (800ah), Raymarine E80 Chartplotter Radar and Raymarine navigation, 30hp engines with Balmar high output alternators, New Mainsail and furling Genoa, 60# Delta and 40# Bruce anchors with 210ft of 10mm galvanized chain and big anchor windlass .... the list goes on. (Be sure to check out her full specs!)
On deck, everything is set up for short-handed sailing and she performs exceptionally well in light to moderate winds while still maintaining a safe and stable platform in adverse sea conditions. There is a double helmseat in the cockpit under a hard top bimini (a very nice feature not often seen for a catamaran of this size) with an excellent view forward.
The Admiral 38 catamaran is designed by Angelo Lavranos whose trademark sleek lines and performance shine true to his motto of "Space, Pace and Grace". Apart from sailing beautifully, this Admiral 38 has an incredible feeling of space. The roomy, open galley-up is brilliantly laid out and rivals that of a much larger catamaran. Everywhere are handy lockers. With the beautiful joinery work and wood accents there is an attractive feel of high-end design with a comfortable and functional homeliness. A perfect livaboard cruiser! Pack your bags and let the sailing begin!

An interview with Owners:
Shhhh, don’t tell Famous Potatoes she’s being included in an article about starter cats. She thinks she’s at least 42 feet long, and she’s about convinced me of it too. The most impressive thing about this boat is her incredibly spacious feel. Owners of larger cats have come aboard and exclaimed, “Wow, you have so much room! What a beautiful boat!”
I fell in love with her lines when I first saw her at the 2005 Miami Boat Show. She looks sleek and fast, and indeed she is. On passages I love to see another sailboat ahead of us, especially if it’s a larger cat. I like to sail past and pretend I’m reading a book. She is capable, too. I sailed her from South Africa to Florida with 25-to-37-knot winds and some 20-foot waves for the first three days. We reached top speeds near 20 knots while surfing down them. The autopilot and boat both handled it with ease, but I admit that on two occasions I had to grab my wineglass as it slid across the dinner table.
The roomy, open galley-up is brilliantly laid out, a pleasure to cook in, and easy to clean. We entertain a lot and once had 26 fellow cruisers partying aboard. We have the owner’s version, and our bed is huge; the fore/aft layout means there’s no crawling over one another during the night.
The 2-foot, 9-inch draft put the Admiral on our “top three” list immediately. In the clear waters of the Bahamas and the Caribbean I can sail right through reefs that other cats (to say nothing of monohulls) fear. We love finding a secluded sandy beach and anchoring in 4 feet of water; then taking a stern anchor ashore so we can step off the sugar scoop and walk in to our private beach paradise. What more could you want from a 42-foot—whoops, I mean a 38-foot—cat? She looks lovely, feels good, and sails beautifully. We love this boat!
