Prometa Banana 43 - Bonobo - € 314,000

YOTI proudly and exclusively offer for sale the 2009 Prometa - Banana 43 "Bonobo", currently located in the amazing islands of New Caledonia. 

The Banana 43, build by the Prometa yard in France, is an aluminium "no limits" world cruising catamaran. It has been called the "Landrover" of the Oceans. 
It is a sister ship to "Mowgli", the first version of the Banana. Mowgli sailed half way around the world with the owner's family and he continued with a single hand trip (a world first on a cat) from Australia to Tierre del Fuego!

Access to the vessel is made easy by the transom steps, with waterproof hatches to the engine bays and storage lockers. The large cockpit is the focal point for entertainment, with comfortable all round seating and immediate access to helm station with large Furuno plotter and the sail controls. 

The light and spacious saloon has plenty seating around a solid timber table, has a well appointed galley to port and dedicated navigation table to starboard. Visibly is very good with all round windows, so that you may keep a watchful eye from inside too. 

The port hull features a double berth cabin up front with plenty storage and overhead hatch for ventilation. In the passage way the beautiful timber joinery continues with more cupboards and domestic size fridge / freezer, for those long passages and cruises. Aft in the port hull is the very large head with enclosed shower that will appeal greatly to those seeking these homely comforts. 

The starboard hull also has a very comfortable double berth cabin. In the passage way there is a head with washbasin and a separate shower, accessed by its own door. The cruisers dream is found aft in the starboard hull: a dedicated Machinery/ Workshop with amongst others a Sea Recovery 60l/ hr water maker and a freezer. Interestingly all the fridges and freezer are freshwater cooled by means of the onboard vessels water tanks. Efficient, and no marine growth to block the strainers. A single berth could be reinstated in the workshop, in lieu of the bench top. 

The electrical installation is all Mastervolt; Furuno Navvnet3D navigation and instruments, two independent autopilots etc., precisely what you would expect from an ex Naval Officer, that build this vessel for his extended worldwide cruising. The vessel is self sufficient, with generator, watermaker, solar panels, wind generator, 2 fridges, 2 freezers, gennaker, spinnaker (para sail) and oversized rigging and anchor gear. This is a seriously capable vessel, build to last!
It is a true sailor's boat, even for the extreme latitudes.
