Boat Details

About This Boat

Island Girl is a 48 foot Malcolm Tenant power catamaran, designed for coastal voyaging and island hopping.

She has very low hours on her dual Yanmar engines, is well equipped, and has been carefully maintained by her owner, a seasoned seaman who has spent his life on the water. He presently owns a large sailing catamaran and is heavily involved in the Marshall Islands with humanitarian work and projects in the South Pacific region. Island Girl was purchased mainly to be used for a specific project that was recently cancelled. 

She is being offered at a heavily discounted price for a yacht of her size, condition and equipment list due to her remote location. She can be motored at a speed of 9 knots and, with extra bladder tankage, and travel up to 800 miles on her own bottom. Using her existing tankage, she has a range of about 350 miles. Her top speed is 23 knots, but her cruising speed is ideal at 9 knots for efficient use of fuel. 

Due to her range limits, she is mostly ideal for coastal cruising, island hoping, rather than long oceanic crossings. Where she is located now she cannot be taken to Hawaii on her own bottom. She is ideally purchased by someone in the South Pacific. She can motor on her own to Tarawa in Kiribati, then to Funafati in Tuvalu, then to Fiji and points South. She can also motor to Guam, over to Kosrae, Pohnpei, and Chuuck, but would need additional bladder tanks for this journey. Her delivery can be arranged at an additional charge to potential purchasers. 

Her listed price is very, very low for a yacht of this quality, vintage, and condition due to her location. For anyone in the region she represents a superb deal for purchase, but an Aussie, Kiwi, or any Pacific Islander would be thrilled to find such a powercat near them at such a price. Replacement value for a Tenant such as this would exceed 1 million dollars.

Please contact us with any questions that you may have.
