11m Pelin Tradewind. This cruisy sailing cat is both a floating bach and a competent seafarer. There are few boats that boast the ability to be both without compromise, but this cat does! She has plenty of adventures in her well-documented history, being at the centre of many feature stories and photography sessions for Waterline Magazine.
A capable coastal cruiser with a roomy saloon set up for live aboard, there’s full standing headroom virtually throughout. A ton of possibilities for adventure await the new owner with this versatile vessel.
Built in Te Puke by the late Tim Simcock shes cedar and mahogany ply, glassed over, with a recently added lifted cabin top professionally built from foam core and fibreglass.
Powered by a single Yamaha 25 high-thrust four stroke outboard with low hours, which sits in a pod under the cockpit, tilting clear of the water to provide clean and quiet sailing and reduced fouling when moored. Steering is by wheel and there’s an autohelm that connects to the crossbar and controlled from the helm station. She is a simple, well balanced rig that is easily handled by one and superbly simple with two.
This boat can sail and anchor in shallow situations, providing a great option on those busy summer days when all the deep water spots are taken. She could even cruise right up to the beach and sit quite happily on her hulls on the sand at low tide.
The views from the saloon are wide and open, through the teak rear doors, big windows and hatches. A well-equipped galley in the starboard hull is open plan and connected to the bridge deck with a servery between. The main cabin has two double berths, semi-enclosed. These could be easily curtained off for more privacy. Generous single berths in each bow and another small double/large single in the starboard aft hull. A U-shape couch with storage under, is wrapped around a large central dining table. There’s a heap of shelves and storage in
the hulls and under the berths.
Well worth your inspection as so many features for you to check out.
