    *   ELEVEN REASONS ... why you should consider owning Cobalt Blue It's the most stable platform on the water imaginable. I've slept through severe storms completely unawares. There is virtually no pitch & yaw as in a traditional monohull. I’m highly prone to motion sickness, and it’s only bitten me twice in 12 years … both times in big crossing seas. Monohull ‘purists’ may think nausea is a badge of honor. Not me. Oh, and about all those spilled Margaritas. Cats don’t ‘heel’ under sail.  The view. Because of her configuration and low draft, you stand much higher above the water when below deck. And the broad expanse of glass across the bridgedeck gives elevated panoramic views. By contrast, a monohull can feel like a claustrophobic ‘cave’ in the water.  The maneuverability. I’ve watched more marina wrecks than I can count when single-screw monohulls try maneuvering in tight spaces in heavy current. With twin props I can spin 360 degrees in place in the trickiest of flows. And this advantage alone may save your marriage / relationship when attempting to anchor. The galley being separated from the salon. Food preparation in the middle of your living area may ‘sound’ socially appealing. And the Caribbean cruising brochures joyfully exploit all that potential ‘togetherness’. But after 4 or 5 days ______ ?  You fill in the blank. The privacy of dual hulls. It's sorta’ like the galley issue. Staterooms & baths in opposite hulls are a godsend when spending more than a few nights with family or guests. Even the exteriors are set up for privacy. I often took my son & hordes of his college buddies & bud-ettes out on the harbor along with some of my adult-ish friends. Crazy kids up front in the tramps … adults lounging on deck seats in the rear. Great. ! The 3’6’’ draft. Have you ever sailed the Bahamas, Keys, or ITCW in a monohull?  If so, then you know what it’s like to suffer through 8' depth-anxiety ... when there's a 4' alternative. There are huge areas of the Bahamas Bank you simply can’t go to unless you draft under 5'. And strangely, the stuff you’ll hit (and yeah … you ‘will’ ) that’s only 3' deep tends to be a lot softer than the stuff at 7'. Save the Xanax … cruise the islands in a cat.  Open ocean safety. There are endless online forums debating whether a cat or a monohull is more likely to pitch-pole or roll in huge seas. I’ll give you the Cliff Notes … it’s indeterminate. But you can review the arguments here   However, there is one consensus. Once a monohull goes down … it’s eventually gonna’ sink. Cats float. Watch Robert Redford kiss his sailboat goodbye around the 1:30 mark in this 'All Is Lost'  trailer    The storage. As a rule, a cat has about 150% of the overall space of the same length monohull, and even more ‘floor space’. And Floor Space = Storage Space. In other words, a 45-ft cat is going to have more storage than a 70-ft monohull. Maybe not important for a weekend excursion … but 8 wks. in the Bahamas ? I’ve been there …   The helm-centric rigging. I’ll admit it. I’ve done less sailing and more motoring than I'd anticipated when I bought her. But that’s only a matter of personal preference (once I’m on H2O, my relaxation dopamine kicks-in). And there’s another curious thing about cats. Friends & family, even dock-groupies, are not as intimidated going out on a cat as monohull. Most of my social world doesn't know a jib from a chocolate bar. Therefore, I usually find myself as all-in-one helmsman, 1st mate, mast man, and trimmer. And if you’re a sailor, you already know the joy of having all those jib / genoa / mainsail halyards and sheets land within two steps of the helm. And back to safety issue … that’s a big deal in an offshore storm. Again, I’ve been there !  The systems redundancy. Not only does Cobalt Blue have critical navigation redundancy … Chart plotter, GPS, & Depth … catamarans have power redundancy built-in by dual engines and fuel systems. Yes, I have limped home on one engine more than a few times. In 2017, I lost my stbd engine in the remote Berry Islands and was still able to cruise at 2/3 speed for 350 mi. up the Gulf Stream to Ponce Inlet, Fla. for repairs. Absent that, I might still be stuck in the Berrys. Her looks. Cats can look pretty ungainly. Example ... just take a gander at the Lagoons. They look like bug-eyed Manta Rays. But they don’t have to. Beauty may be in the beholder, but there are a lot of beholders who think Prouts are the sleekest of the lot.  The price. Please view the last several files in the photos section for a summary of Cobalt Blue's competitive-set pricing. She's been priced to sell ...  (so please, save the $ negotiation impulses for the car lot). Please see the 'Offering Terms' slide in photos.
