Welcome aboard "Symmetry", a 1994 Victory 35 built by Endeavour International. The current owner has maintained this yacht for the past 16 seasons in excellent condition, with meticulous attention to detail inside and out. The mechanical. structural, and electrical condition of this yacht will impress the most knowledgeable buyers out there. Finding a cat with full standing heardroom throughout, a double master layout, and excellent performance in this size range is unheard of. This is the ideal platform for cruising the East Coast and Bahamas in style. "Symmetry" was just launched, with fresh bottom paint, catleg service, and hull waxing in November 2016. Don't let the opportunity to own a capable cruising cat for under $100k sail away without you!
***November 2016 -- Fresh bottom paint; Repainted Catleg (Trilux 33); polished all hull and topsides fiberglass.
** October 2014 -- New Sunbrella upholstery - all settee cushions; RIB professionally reconditioned; insurance survey; full rigging inspection.
Vessel Highlights Affordable luxury. Ideal yacht for cruising, entertaining, and live aboard-- spacious, optimal layout, shallow draft, and moderate beam, allowing ready access to marina berths. The Victory 35 is a cruising catamaran, designed to be fast, safe, comfortable, and fun to sail. Her designer is a cruising sailor. Every detail of her lines, accommodations, deck layout, and sail plan arises from years of sailing and cruising on catamarans. The unique hull design allows a fine waterline entrance enabling the Victory 35 to point 38 degrees apparent while sailing at half of wind speed. Built in the USA by Endeavour International, Clearwater, FL.
The second/current owners acquired her in 2000. Symmetry was featured in an article in the July/August, 1995 issue of Multihulls magazine. All service, including engine, rig, and mechanical maintenance (by Deaton’s Yacht Services, Oriental, NC).
Hull Material: Fiberglass, honeycomb core, biaxial glass fabrics and Vinylester, vacuum-bagged resins.
Layout & Accommodations The Victory 35 is an ideal cruising yacht for East Coast and Caribbean sounds and bays. The deck layout and interior accommodations and equipment provide the space and conveniences to ensure pleasant, safe cruising. The stability of the catamaran provides comfort for your guests and crew, and negates the old warning that anything left out loose will end up on the deck. The large cockpit provides spacious accommodations to spread out and enjoy cruising, as well as a comfortable gathering area for guests to party and relax. The broad solid foredeck is a favorite of guests on board while under sail or lying at anchor. Ample bridgedeck clearance = no slamming! The size and design of the Victory 35 is large enough for comfortable living and cruising, yet it is still small enough to tuck into those shallow unique gunk holes and coves. The shoal keel also allows you to shorten cruising distances by traversing many shallows and shoaled sections of the ICW and sounds. The sixteen foot beam is a special advantage for a catamaran in that it allows access into many marina slips and travel lifts unavailable to other catamarans with broader beams. The Victory 35 was designed with live aboard comfort in mind. Only 30 or so of these unique vessels were built. Several Victory 35 owners live aboard part or full time The bright and airy main salon is luxurious with its teak and holly floor, large dining area, hand-crafted joinery, and louvered doors. There is 6'4" headroom throughout, and the continuous tinted windows offer 180-degree panoramic views from the bridge deck cabin which contains the salon and full galley. The salon area incorporates a U-shaped upholstered dining alcove with two movable upholstered stools, an entertainment center area, navigation station, wrap-around shelf under the main windows, and storage cabinets with teak louvered doors. The salon features a nautical style table built by a master woodworker.
Integration of the U-shaped galley as part of the salon allows the onboard chef to be part of ongoing social activities in the salon and cockpit. The galley is equipped with double stainless steel sink, double-burner propane stove, a Sharp microwave , Norcold 120v/12v refrigerator/freezer, and several above and below counter storage cabinets. Within the hulls are a master cabin and a guest cabin with two queen-size aft berths. Berths are oriented fore and aft, providing much greater comfort in a rolling sea than berths laid out athwart ships. The private master cabin in the starboard hull features a queen-size latex/memory foam mattress, ample hanging locker with louvered teak doors, and storage drawers. Also located in the starboard hull is a separate compartment containing a Jabsco flush toilet, full shower with custom hand held shower, and a large vanity with mirror and medicine/storage cabinet, located just aft of the head/shower compartment. The separate guest cabin in the port hull includes an aft cabin with another queen-size berth, a hanging locker, and shoe locker with louvered teak doors. The port hull also contains a full head, shower and vanity with storage beneath, a workbench, and a cabinet for storing tools and spare parts. Seven opening deck hatches with screens (Lewmar), plus ten opening ports with screens, provide light and air below in any weather and any climate. All hatches are equipped with solar powered Nicrovents.
This is a vessel in which everyone on board has plenty of space, privacy, and comfort.
Electronics & Navigation
Deck & Equipment The hull is an asymmetrical design with a 3’2” shoal draft ( draft depends on load). It has a fixed box keel under each hull and twin balanced spade rudders. Not only does this hull design work well in the water, it also makes it easy and simple to block while in dry storage and allows beaching the boat for maintenance. The cockpit has a Todd 5-Star seat for the helmsman. Cockpit seating, which wraps around the port, aft, and starboard sides of the cockpit, can accommodate up to eight guests. The cockpit seats are all equipped with cushions upholstered with weather and mildew resistant material (Textiline). A storage locker is incorporated under the helmsman seat and another locker built into the seatback on the port side. The aft cockpit seat swings up for access to the hydraulic lift pump for the Sonic Cat Leg stern drive, as well as other electrical and mechanical equipment, dock lines, and supplies. The two panels which form the cockpit sole are backed with SoundDown insulation and can easily be lifted and removed for access to the diesel engine, drive coupling, and upper end of the Sonic Cat Leg. Access to the salon from the cockpit is via a tinted bi-fold Lexan companionway door with a sliding tinted Lexan hatch overhead. The helm station position affords a clear view of the entire foredeck and allows easy communication with crewmembers during docking and sailing. The helm station is equipped with a stainless Edson wheel, steering control arm for the Sonic Cat Leg, engine controls and panel, compass, Raymarine navigation instruments and autopilot, Garmin GPS Chartplotter, two electric self-tailing winches for the mainsail halyard and sheet, jib sheets, and reefing control lines. The large solid foredeck provides a stable platform for crew to handle docking lines, sails, anchors, etc. Built-in steps lead up to the salon roof for access to the mast, boom, and mainsail. A large forward locker is accessed via a large hatch in the middle of the foredeck. This locker provides storage for anchors, rode, propane tanks, holding tanks, and still has plenty of space for other sailing and recreational equipment, including bicycles. A hose hookup for the wash-down pump is located alongside the twin anchor rollers. The stern has a crossover walkway and built in transom steps to the water line on both hulls, and a fold-down swim ladder on the starboard hull.
Sails & Rigging The simple, powerful rig has a full-battened mainsail (new in 2009) with lazyjacks. The mainsail drops and reefs easily with a Strongtrack system and Doyle StackPac. The genoa is roller furling (Harken furling system). The traveler is conveniently aft of the cockpit, out of the way. All halyards, sheets, and reefing gear lead aft to the cockpit for effortless single-handed cruising. Lines are controlled by two electric self-tailing winches and sheet stoppers. Raising the mainsail (or crew in a bosun seat) with the electric winch is a breeze. The main sheet can also be controlled with the electric winch. The genoa is easily furled or reefed with the furling line led to the cockpit. The mainsail guided by the lazyjacks drops smoothly into the integrated mainsail cover, which can be zipped closed when you are ready to stow it at the end of your sail
The Berig asymmetric spinnaker is easy to rig and launch and provides exciting performance on reaches and downwind runs. The 49’ mast height provides bridge clearance over the entire length of the ICW from Norfolk to Miami.
