Sailing Catamaran PEARL
- Our floating home
The seating area in the salon
The large standing height in the whole boat is one of the numerous benefits of our catamaran. Another: the large seating area.
It offers all crewmembers place for a get-together, for eating, talk and for a toast with a good wine.
The versatile equipped galley lets in the most varied recipes no wishes unfulfilled. It has a 3-burner gas stove with large oven, a fridge, a separate freezer, a double sink with draining area and many devices that make life easier. The entire area is located on the starboard side of the salon next to the seating area. So we are not separated from the rest of the crew while preparing the meals through the flowing spatial transition to the salon.
CabinsIn each hull the PEARL has 2 large double berths, a roomy in the bow and a stern, and one bathroom with sink, mirror, shower basin and toilet.
The bathrooms are located respectively midships in the transition of the hulls between the berths.
Therefore it is extremely private, and it is a pleasant sleep allow.
In each case behind the doors of the berths are lockers for personal belongings.
In the berths you'll find a selection of books and games contained in shelves.
All berths are equipped with reading lights.
One wants to privately retreat sometimes? No problem!
The berths are spacious and very cozy!
Aft cabin to starboard
This is our bunk.
Aft cabin to port
Here Christine has established her film studio when no guests on board.
She likes to edit in a comfortable lying position and can darken the berth very well at daytime.
Front cabin to starboard
These berth we use mainly as a work and storage space. Here is next to the entrance our washing machine.
Unfortunately, it looks here only rarely so nice tidy.
With more than 4 guests on board we would sleep here and put our berth to guests.
Who knows if that will ever happen?
Possibly we will build here a workshop later up.
Our clothes drying space is located at the stern underneath the solar panels.
Front cabin to port
Bathroom to starboard
If we are alone, this is Christines bathroom. Are guests on board, we share it.
Bathroom to port
That's Alwins bathroom when no guests on board. When we have guests, he moves into the bathroom to starboard.
The spacious cockpit is fully covered with a Bimini with large windows in the side walls and in the front and rear wall and is protected absolutely from direct sunlight, wind and rain.
The front window can be opened for better air circulation, so that it is always pleasant cool in the cockpit.
On the port side is a large seating area, similar to the salon that offers all the crew members and additional guests plenty of space.
The ideal place for talking, eating or for a sundowner.
We spend the most time of the day in the cockpit, it is as though our second living room.
On both sides each have a lounger for relaxing, sunbathing or reading.
If the side walls and the rear wall rolled up, there is a good panoramic view, and you feel immediately like sitting at a roofed terrace.
Behind the cockpit is still enough space for a transition, from which the rear steps of the hulls can be reached for bathing or for convenient boarding the dinghies.
The helm station with steering wheel is placed on the starboard side of the bulkhead to the saloon.
From here, the catamaran can be pleasantly navigated protected from the sun, wind and rain. But this does anyway usually the autopilot.
The helm station is equipped with all the instruments that are necessary or convenient for a safe navigation of the vessel.
