It has been three wonderful years with Catlyn! We have started our dream, sailing the world with her, and too soon it was time to say good bye to her. Catlyn was sold, with a smile and a tear. Her new owners is Brett and Teresa, who will start their dream journey with her, in 2013! Teresa started her own blog "Seismic Wave", and you can follow them.

And us? And our Catlyn blog? How can I end this? How can I let her down, and just stop? Catlyn started something deep inside of our family, and this something will be growing all the time.
Although we will be land animals for some time, I do believe that our journey will return to the Big Blue some day, and then Catlyn will be waiting for us!

I will keep on sharing what Catlyn started...

Catlyn is a  Maverick 400 Award Winning South African Built Catamaran, designed for a safe and comfortable life afloat with extra-wide hulls providing good load-carrying capacity with generous cabins and excellent visibility. Visit for more information about Catlyn and the Maverick 400 Catamaran.

Some unique features of a Maverick 400 Catamaran include:
• High bridge-deck clearance combined with voluminous bows make for a dry, go-anywhere vessel;
• The extra-width and height, together with the large windows give the visual effect of a much larger boat;
• The superb interior has a choice of layouts, offering comfortable sleeping arrangements for six people in three cabins with a truly massive owner's suite to starboard, which includes "his and hers" basins and both a shower and bath; or up to eight people in four luxury cabins with heads and showers in each hull;
• Deck saloon with wrap-around windows encloses a large galley, saloon, nav-station and breakfast nook, opening up onto the huge cockpit via sliding glass doors and windows, to create an extensive living area;
• Hidden mood-lighting in the designer saloon with dedicated reading lights;
• Large-screen monitor for entertainment and instrument display.
• Large, well equipped galley for the gourmet chef that is part of the living space;
• Large, front opening fridge and drawer freezer with optional extra drawer fridge or freezer;
• Optional dish-washer and washing machine forward of galley keeps you outdoors;
• Covered cockpit with canvas enclosures provides a sociable area even in inclement weather;
• Protected helm position with double seat;
• Cockpit seating with removable table and sun-hammock aft;
• Most lines lead aft to enable short-handed sailing so that the yacht can be sailed, reefed and sails stowed without the helmsman or crew ever leaving the cockpit;
• Generous fuel, water and black water tanks;
• Separate, large engine rooms aft with overhead access hatch for easy maintenance;
• Bow and stern 'dolphin-watcher' seats;
• Game fishing position with sea access and gas barbeque to supplement fresh food on voyages;

The Maverick 400 has won the South African Sailing Boat of the Year Award each year since its launch (2009 and 2010). Certified to the European Recreational Craft Directive Category A (Ocean), the Maverick 400 is capable of cruising the world's oceans in total luxury.
