Sonadora is one of the most safe and proven blue water catamarans you'll find. She is a perfect liveaboard for a family on a budget, without compromising on safety or comfort. She is built with the solidness of an original Solaris, but with all the modern technology for easy sailing. With 5 cabins, a saloon and dining area to rival a small house, Sonadora is not your typical production boat.
This is an extremely forgiving yacht that has withstood the test of time. Built in 1975, by Solaris England in collaboration with her owners who lived onboard for nearly 40 years, she has circumnavigated twice and extensively sailed through the South Pacific. Sonadora can handle the ocean and is a turnkey boat ready to go. She can be sailed two handed, or with some minor adjustments can be made single handed.
As a family of 11, we have loved the space aboard and are currently sailing in Fiji for the season. We are very sad to be selling this amazing vessel, but the older kids are ready to start their lives back on land so it's time for someone else to continue her adventures. NZ GST has been paid so Sonadora can stay in NZ or you can explore the world on her with confidence! We would also consider selling her in Fiji so you could just fly in and begin your adventure.
With huge water and diesel capactiy, full laundry, storage and more storage you can be at sea for extended periods of time. Check out the extensive specs and feel free to get in touch via WhatsApp with any questions!
