Grainger 48 - “Celise Spirit ”

Grainger 48 - “Celise Spirit ”

Price Reduced! Owner says "Bring an Offer"

"Celise Spirit" is a very attractive and well proven performance cruising catamaran. She was designed by the respected Australian designer, Tony Grainger, and finely built in the Pacific Northwest by Little Hoquiam Boat Yard/Howard Moe Enterprises.

"Celise Spirit" has proven to be an exceptionally comfortable cruising boat, both at anchor and at sea. She features moderately proportioned hulls for good performance while carrying a cruising payload and good bridgedeck clearance to minimize pounding. Her cockpit is on the same level as the bridgedeck salon and is shaded by a fiberglass roof extension. Her spacious, bright and airy bridgedeck salon is trimmed in walnut and features outstanding 360 degree visibility, a fully fitted navigation station and a lounge. The hulls are fitted with 3 x double cabins and one single cabin, 2 x heads with showers, and a large galley. Headroom is exceptional throughout at about 6.7'.

"Celise Spirit" regularly cruises under sail at 8 to 9 knots. With true wind over 20 knots and 60-135 degree apparent wind, she attains 10 to 13 knots.

"Celise Spirit" is for sale because her owner has completed his long term cruising and now wishes to pursue other interests. She has always been well maintained and regularly updated and is ready to go again. If long term cruising on a comfortable performance cruising catamaran is in your future, you should give "Celise Spirit" serious consideration.

"Celise D" has a bright, airy and open interior that is a joy to live aboard. Numerous eye level windows provide abundant natural light and an outstanding view of the outside world. There is none of the "living in a hole" feeling found in some other catamarans. The salon is open to the galley for easy communication between chef and guests and is on the same level as the cockpit. Staterooms are private and comfortable. 

The bridgedeck cabin houses a navigation station to port, a lounge forward and a dinette table with seating for six persons to starboard. The navigation table is 4' x 3' and has chart storage below. 

"Celise D" can sleep up to 7 persons in 3 x double staterooms and one single stateroom. The staterooms are located fore and aft in each hull. The single stateroom, which is aft in the starboard hull, is also used as a workshop. The 3 x double staterooms each have a hanging locker. Ample storage lockers are located throughout the interior. 

"Celise D" has two heads, one amidships in the port hull and the other in the starboard hull bow. Each head is equipped with a marine W.C. and holding tank, a sink and a shower. In addition, the port head is fitted with a Lectrasan waste treatment system. 

The galley is "down" and is located amidships in the starboard hull. 

Cabin soles are covered in a mix of carpet and teak and holly flooring. Bulkheads are varnished Cherry veneer with Walnut trim. Hull sides are fabric covered. The main salon settee is upholstered with white vinyl. The salon table is Formica with Walnut trim. Heads and showers are painted for low maintenance.
