1997 Kelsall Catamarans KSS 45 Catamaran Sailboat in Belize

Stock #165797

Designed by Derek Kelsall and built by J. Partington in Lancaster, Great Britain in 1997 this 1997 Kelsall KSS 45 sailing catamaran has recently completed circumnavigating the world.

Each ama houses a twin birth forward and aft and a head compartment.

Two 2010 Trampolines forward provide extra room for sunbathing and play.

Spacious main salon houses the nav station, large settee and a dinette.

A full galley is to port with two refrigerators (a 12 volt DC and a 110 volt AC), 3 burner propane stove, both a conventional oven and a microwave.

Trumatic propane heating system provides cabin heat and hot water.

The main mast features jib winches and a new fully battened mainsail with a lazy jack system. There is a 155% genoa on a roller and a colorful fly sail for running downwind. Traveler is moved behind the cockpit to reduce clutter.

2013 Apex A9 Lite 4 person dinghy + a 6hp Yamaha on a Davitt at the stern.

Auxiliary power is provided by twin 1995 Perkins 28 HP diesel inboards turning two folding props via a sonic sail drive.

There is also a Vetus electric bow thruster for easy docking. A Vetus hydraulic sterndrive is installed for feather touch steering. Raymarine Autohelm autopilot helps maintain the heading.

Electrical power is supplied by a 2 kW Honda portable generator. There are 6 solar panels 100W each, and a 450W Apollo wind generator to recharge all 12 batteries onboard. There are two inverters, a 2 kW and a 1 kW onboard.

Navigation equipment includes a JRC radar, two chart plotters, Raymarine wind, depth and log gauge, autopilot, and a long-range VHF radio.

Dinghy included: 2013 Apex A9 Lite 4 person dinghy + a 6hp Yamaha

Information On Condition

Meticulously maintained by the owner-captain, who captains the catamaran singlehandedly, this ocean crossing sailing catamaran is ready to set sail.

Engines, electronics, rigging, and sails appear in good shape.

Cosmetic condition is average, hull and cockpit are due for wax and polish, woodwork could use fresh varnish.

Both amas and salon appear spotless clean and dry.
