This boat was designed by Robert Perry and built at the Lien Hwa Industiral Shipyard in Taiwan. Robert Perry is generally credited with starting the "performance cruising" movement that introduced the concept of sailing speed to offshore cruising yachts. If there is a Center Cockpit Motor Sailor that sails, and powers, with top performance, this is it!
Copy Cat was recommissioned in 2010-2015 with a goal of producing a Motor Sailor that offered Safety, Comfort, Piece of Mind, and Great Sailing
Copy Cat's engine is a 4 cylinder 4-236 85 HP Perkins Engine. The engine consumes 1.5 gallons per hour and easily powers the boat to more than 8 knots. With a little help from the currents, ground speeds of more than 10 knots are common.
Forward is a VIP cabin featuring an offset double berth to port. Opposite to starboard, is a large hanging locker and ample storage in multiple drawers, cabinets, and cubbies.
Just aft to port is a large enclosed head with separate stall shower. Opposite the head is a large pantry/hanging locker.
Up two steps you step into the spacious and airy main salon/pilothouse with the lower helm to starboard and a U-shaped galley to port.
Aft of the galley is a convertible U-shaped dinette with complete visibility from a seated position. The pilothouse features 270 degree visibility from standing or seated positions.
This vessel offers extensive Taiwanese teak interior with aft master cabin and custom queen size bed on centerline, center galley-up saloon with standup AC/DC refrigerator freezer, inside steering station, dinette seating, 24"flat screen AC/DC HD TV, foreword cabin with a Twin mattress (i.e.non-V birth), abundant storage, and foreword head private access.
