LUMBAZ is a nice example of the very sought after and classic Catana 431 performance cruising catamaran. It is a true blue water catamaran in excellent condition. The yacht offers ultimate sea worthiness, high speed, space and privacy. ‘We looked for the ideal compromise between cruising comfort and performance and we got it with Lumbaz’, says her owner, who spent considerable time looking for the perfect boat to take his wife and young children on their 2nd Pacific cruise.

Lumbaz was professionally refitted in the US West Coast at the end of 2013. This yacht has never been chartered and is in beautiful condition, having always been cherished as one of the family and well looked after throughout her travels. The yacht has also been given a full maintenance and beauty service between August and September 2016, where her engines and sail drives were serviced, her bottom was scraped off her many layers of antifoul and given 4 epoxy barrier coats and 2 coats of antifouling (3 on the waterline), as well as the boat being detailed, polished and wax so as to present as immaculately as possible for her new owners. ‘Lumbaz’ is ready to keep on sailing with her new prospective owners.

The Catana 431 can easily and safely be sailed single-handed or as a couple, having all the main sail controls lead back to the cockpit. The winches for main sail control and for jib sheets are Harken electric, allowing for easy & comfortable sailing. She has a tall rig (only a few 431 were fitted out with the 471 mast) allowing for nice light wind performance. ‘This has saved us a lot of fuel across the Pacific and in Indonesian waters, and it allows for more fun sailing!’ commented the owners. She has also upgraded 4 cyl. Yanmar engines

Features

Every single equipment that you’ll find on Lumbaz has a manual and operating instructions. All well organized and easy to find. This proves as a great asset when things don’t go the way you want. The boat also has log books of all maintenance done on all serviceable items and obviously the engines and there is a list of spare parts for different components like eg. Engines, pumps and heads so that there is always a spare part on board. After buying the boat we changed all the through hull fittings (bronze) as well as the standing rigging and overhauled both engines completely. The result has been 3 years of continuous sailing, approx. 25,000 Nm without major problems.

Prevention goes a long way at sea.
