This 2011 Privilege 495 is hull #31, the last one built, and likely the finest model of this fabulous, ocean-going, eminently seaworthy cruising catamaran remaining. With her low profile, her 860' sq ft mainsail (new 2018) and versatile cutter rig with three headsails, (new gennaker 2018) this is a go anywhere boat. All of her standing rigging was replaced and the mast, boom and bowsprit repainted with Awlgrip in 2018. Her design and construction forward provide massive strength not found in other catamarans. This design allows for two bow rollers off the A-frame and a chain locker forward which permits easy access to the anchor and chain as well as safe and problem free anchoring. In addition, this unique construction provides space for a very generous sit-down workroom that has massive amounts of storage for tools and spares. Her cockpit hard-top bimini, with removable cockpit enclosures and sliding hatch steering station allows for complete visibility of all four corners of the boat as well as complete protection from the weather. There are welded stainless handholds beneath the hard top that allow for safe movement about the cockpit in any weather. There are five large lockers in the cockpit for storage for all the gear required for safety, for normal everyday function of the boat, and for fun. Her teak decks in the generous sugar scoops and cockpit add functionality and beauty to her sleek, handsome design.
Her bottom is perfect and blister free with CopperCoat antifouling, 2021, for years of trouble free service.
