1999 Custom Alex Simonis Catamaran

Fort Lauderdale, Florida





"SHANGRI-LA" is a one-of-a-kind catamaran from the drawing board of the great Alex Simonis of Simonis-Voogd and Leopard Catamarans fame. Constructed by Caribe Yachts, using Kevlar below and around the waterline, Carbon Fiber and a Foam Core to produce an extremely lightweight but strong hull. Twin helms afford excellent visibility along with spacious seating in the cockpit. Crane and chocks are used for lifting and raising the dinghy. She features 5 double cabins, each with their own head, as well as a crew cabin and storage area in the forepeaks. Massive salon and bar with a very spacious galley down.

This vessel would be ideal for term charter, dive/expedition charter, or for a family taking the cruise of a lifetime to faraway islands. She is reluctantly, though seriously offered for sale.

*Very* detailed and recent survey available for vetted buyers.
