"AVALON" IS PRICED TO SELL, From the drawing board of high-performance catamaran designer, Peter Wormwood, comes the Wormwood 55. And this boat is fast! I have sailed her myself down the Chesapeake Bay at 18.5 knots in a thunderstorm. I was passing lots of power boats. I then sailed her out into the Atlantic up to Newport. I can tell you this boat lollygags at 12 knots with the main well reefed down for easy night sailing. The owner of this boat has spent many thousands of dollars on her in the past two years. He has owned for over a decade. "AVALON" is currently lying in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This past year the owner conducted a complete structural check and reinforcements, new carbon bimini with walk-on solar panels, refit of electric systems, new paint on the mast and reshaping of the rudders for better helm balance just to name a few, spending over $125,000 to make her ready for a circumnavigation. A change of family plans has, for now, nixed that vision. "AVALON" arrived in Fort Lauderdale in July 2015 where she is now seriously for sale. A few things to note: She is U.S. designed, and U.S. built and may therefore be modified to do high performance charter work. As anyone knows, replacement value for a cat with this sort of performance and materials is well over 1 million dollars. Avalon will have great appeal to a sailor who wants a very high performance cat that can cross oceans safely and offer good live-aboard comforts. Designed to cruise the oceans of the world at speed with a small crew, "AVALON" has the long legs necessary for blue water sailing. As you step aboard, you will discover that the cockpit is a lounger paradise.Centered in the cockpit is a table that expands to provide dining up to 10 people. Double sliding doors and large opening windows allow easy access and excellent communication between the cockpit and main saloon. She has deep rectractable daggerboards that give her great performance to wind; retracting both daggerboards and rudders the boat draws a mere 2'6" and allows you to reach anchorages otherwise precluded. A special boat for serious sailors. Call Phil to learn more about "AVALON"
