Catalina 400 mk2


Our new to the fleet (as of Dec 2020) Catalina 400 mk2  will be based out of Mystic for the summer of 2021.  She is in St. Thomas till May of 2021 when she will head north (and several members are onboard for parts of this trip).  Our Catalina 400 offers twin helm steering, with an enormous owners cabin aft (we may alter this to have a 2nd aft cabin after we get more member feedback).  As our largest and most comfortable yacht, she is ideal for longer summer cruises.  When we purchased her, she had been sailed for less than 100 days, having been in storage for almost all of her existence.  The motor had less than 40 hours of use.  As of Jan 2021, she has new sails, new canvas, new electronics, and lots of other upgrades.

Var 37

VAr37, based out of Norwalk CT for 2021, offers quality European design and workmanship. She has a simple, elegant interior, beautiful lines and striking teak decks in the cockpit area. See VArYachts.com for more info.

With quality construction by Hanse, she is better built than many high end yachts. Sailing performance is perhaps her most notable feature. With a large main that can be effectively reefed, a 105% jib that is almost self tacking, she is easy, fast and fun. All the sheets can be trimmed from the helm, allowing one person to sail her with ease. Let your crew do what they enjoy (a hint – this generally does not include sheeting in large headsails!), while you enjoy the feel of the roller bearing steering system with finger tip control.

Our VAr 37 also has more sail area than our competitors, so you can actually move in light air instead of bobbing around. When the wind picks up, you’ll appreciate her stiffness and stability, thanks to the properly sized keel.

Down below, the spacious three stateroom layout allows everyone to spread out in their own cabins or enjoy the spacious main salon. Her Bose speakers can be directed out the cockpit or into the main salon, and the iPod jack allows you to hear just what you want. The midships head includes a stall shower. The owner’s stateroom forward has plenty of room for all your gear and a very large berth.  She also has a rigid bimini with solar panels and dingy davits, for even more comfort and performance.

Jonmeri 40

Jonmeri 40
Jonmeri 40
Jonmeri 40, is a new addition to the 40 class. Our Jonmeri 40 has been custom modified for our member’s use, with a walk thru transom, rigid solar bimini with dingy davits, and a new engine, sails, electronics etc for 2021.

The interior of the Finish built Jonmeri is stunning, with beautiful varnished woodwork, as one would expect from a company that is an offshoot from Swan.  Swan is universally acknowledged as the finest production Yacht builder in the world.  The Jonmeri yachts share the same focus on quality, strength, excellent sailing abilities and stunning interiors, and are likewise considered one of the finest yachts in the world.

She has a forward head and V berth, along with a 2 separate cabin aft, one with a very large double, the other a large single or small double.  Both aft cabins can be connected if desired by hinging up the separating panel.  There is the same standard large galley as before, along with lots of storage. The Yanmar diesel is new as of November 2021, and there are lots of other great interior upgrades to make for an enjoyable, trouble free cruise

On deck she has a single large cockpit (14′ from front to back end!), a single forward companionway, and a walk thru transom.  Overhead, the main sheet lives on top of the 16′ long rigid bimini, which terminates in a davit system so the dingy can be easily raised and lowered.  Our 40 has new sails, new standing and running rigging, and all new B&G electronics.   The main flakes automatically with the Dutchman  system, while the jib is self tacking.
