Quandary has been in the Multihull Company family for over a decade. She is one of those very special, well cared for, always loved, owner version Catana 431's that are perfectly suited for a couple to live on and sail the seven seas.

In addition to being very well equipped, and updated, she is set apart from every other 431 because she has all new wiring - yes, her entire electrical system was redone last year due to a minor lightning strike. So, none of the old relay cards, just a rock solid all new system of all new everything. So what does this mean? Just a $95,000 bonus to a smart buyer who has always dreamed of an owner version 431 classic.

So what else is cool? Quandary has the optional, upgraded, aft port office that can also be turned into a single berth when needed. She is just a tidy, maxed out, live-aboard 431.

Her woodwork is fantastic, cockpit and salon fabrics like new. She's clean as a whistle. So, if you want dagger-boards, if you want high clearance, if you want to pump into rough seas and still be sailing, and fast, Quandary is your best bet in this price point today. I've sold this boat with pride before and I'll sell her with pride again.

Call if you have questions. Check out her great inventory. She is duty paid, U.S. flagged, and lying in Florida. How sweet it is.
