Silver Tern For Sale

Silver Tern 2013
Mumby 48
$325,000.00 USD

This catamaran was professional built to the highest standards so it could be sailed safely anywhere in comfort at high speeds. This is number 40 of these ocean going boats.
She is a three cabin version with a workshop, laundry room and huge dry locker on deck.
Silver Tern was built specially for the owners who wanted a very strong, easy to sail and comfortable to live on voyaging boat. She has extra structural supports running along the hulls. There are fore and aft crash bulkheads. Her salon and cockpit accommodate the owners 1.85 M height and the inboard areas of the aft bunks are 50 mm higher than normal. She was built with custom hand rails allowing safe access to the transoms without the danger of going overboard. These handrails also make it much easier to get in and out of the dinghy. She was custom built with integral in-hull fuel tanks. These allow the weight of the fuel to be lower and outboard. There is a custom double helm seat with storage under. All normal sail handling is done from the cockpit. The galley was redesigned to accommodate larger refrigeration areas, a spice rack, an integral rubbish bin and easy access to cooking tools. The chart table is extra-large and the electrical panels are very comprehensive. The salon settee has corners instead of a circular shape. This does not look as good, but is much more comfortable for lounging, sleeping or watching the built-in 12 V. TV.
The interior is beautifully fitted out in seamless molded fiberglass, it is easy to clean and is maintenance free. The floors are hand-built rosewood and beech wood, the cupboard doors are hand crafted from red cedar and Philippine rattan.
It has kick up rudders with shaft driven folding propellers that allow it to float in only 0.6 meters of water.
All deck gear is over sized to safely handle the loads and speeds of long ocean voyages. She is rigged to be easily single handed.
There is sufficient solar to allow the boat to sit at anchor or sail for extended periods of time without running the engines. Lights, refrigeration and the water maker are all 12 V and solar powers them all. We have never used shore power when in a marina or on the hard.
