Custom built for her current highly-experienced owner, SELIKA is hull no.7 of seven Catana 65’s built at the French shipyard. Conceived for fast bluewater passages and offshore races, SELIKA’s construction incorporates extensive use of carbon infused structures to reduce her weight by approx. 5 tons over a regular Cantana 65. Coupled with her full high modulus carbon rig, carbon standing rigging and top-of-the range carbon laminate sails from Incidence, SELIKA has proven herself to be a formidable competitor, winning the prestigious Heineken Regatta in Saint Maarten and more recently, placing third overall in the Tahiti Pearl Regatta, just behind two dedicated racing catamarans. Her performance also makes her perfect for crossing oceans, with her ability to outrun and dodge weather systems coupled to fast, safe and relaxing passage times such as just 15 days from Galapagos to French Polynesia. Her Twaron (Kevlar) hull reinforcements also provide great peace of mind on those longer mid-ocean crossings.

Below decks, SELIKA is luxuriously appointed with lightweight cored maple joinery and an ‘owner’s 4-cabin, 4-ensuite heads’ layout which can be configured easily to run with crew or without. SELIKA has however always been professionally maintained by a permanent crew.

Privately-used by her one owner and never chartered (although built to demanding  MCA classification standards), SELIKA is now offered for sale as her owner has a new larger custom carbon catamaran in construction. Offered for sale exclusive of EU VAT and under a Gibraltar flag to offer maximum flexibility to her next owner’s plans, and with a replacement cost of circa Euro 4 million, SELIKA is very realistically priced to attract a quick and simple sale.
