Dean Catamarans are produced in South Africa and renowned for their seaworthiness and practicality. This Espace 440 cruising Catamaran is a great example, being ideal either as a very comfortable blue water cruiser or for weekend sailing with friends. She has a large cockpit with plenty seating for 8-10 people and a raised helm station for excellent visibility while sailing. A double cabin occupies each end of both hulls and the forward two are ensuite with the galley located to starboard and a small office area located to port. Sail handling is made easy with the large mainsail easily handled by a lazyjack system and battcar system. The twin Vetus engines push her along comfortably at 8 knots or you can cruise at a more leisurely 6 knots on one engine.
