DEAN 440 - “HONU KAI ”

DEAN 440 - “HONU KAI ”

Dean catamarans have a loyal following of knowledgeable owners who appreciate the innovative design and excellent craftsmanship these yachts are known for. The voluminous interior accommodations are complimented by a functional cruiser-friendly exterior. These cats were built with excellent payload capacity without compromising stability or performance.

Honu Kai is no exception, and she has recently returned home to the US after safely circumnavigating the Atlantic for the past year. With major upgrades to the electrical and mechanical systems prior to her departure this yacht is ready to undertake her next voyage at a moments notice. Fresh bottom painting and hull waxing was completed in 2017, and Honu Kai is back in the water waiting for new owners to sail her away!
