Nautica 20 150HP Yamaha 14,000

Thank you for looking at my Nautica 20 Catamaran RIB, with a Yamaha 150HP outboard engine and full set of navigation electronics

Hull and engine are both 2008 and made in America as a tender to a large motor yacht, designed to take people to beaches and marinas. The design includes an electrically operated bow ramp, which makes loading and unloading the boat from a beach super easy. The ramp can also be lowered into the water, to ease swimmers or divers entry and return very straight forward - not like a normal RIB where you need to slither over the tubes to get in and out!

As you can see from the photos the boat is in good condition, but as with all boats there are plenty of projects to make them better. The port side tubes have a slow air leak, but this does not affect use because it takes days to be noticeable. The tubes are a bit faded from being used most days for Powerboat training

The engine has been serviced twice a year, because it has been used commercially and has high hours. The engine has never let us down and is a highly powerful motor for this size of boat, she gets on the plane at 12-13 knots and cruises happily at 18-25 knots (30+ max) depending on the sea state. The twin fuel tanks give a range of around 80 nautical miles

Being a catamaran (two side by side hulls) she is really stable, both at rest and when motoring along at speed. Coupled with the ramp this makes for a great work platform for any number of uses

There are 2 batteries fitted, which supply power to the electronics on board:-
* Garmin Echomap UHD 65cv chart plotter with UK & EU maps installed as well as depth sounder / sonar
* Transom mounted depth transducer with water temp
* Standard Horizon GX1500 VHF Radio with digital selective calling, ready programmed with MMSI and ready to go
* Digital Yacht AIS Transceiver, shows position of other vessels and transmits your own info to them
* Bluetooth stereo radio with two speakers
* Professional grade Pacfic VHF antenna

Other equipment included:-
* Two anchors, one with part chain part rope, the other with a good length of rope only
* Samson posts either side of the ramp for easy tying up
* Towing eyes on the transom
* 2-seater helm seat and 2-seater bench both with good storage under
* Midship cleats on the tubes
* Three automatic bilge pumps
* Self draining deck with one-way valves
* Port and starboard LED navigation lights

Plus a twin axle trailer, it is not braked so may not be suitable for long journeys - make your own decision on that but my 4x4 tows if without any trouble at all

It's a great boat and very unusual with the ramp and twin hulls. As an RYA training boat an internationally recognised course could be included for up to 3 people, negotiable as part of the sale. Delivery could also be arranged

Thanks again for looking, boat is afloat in Plymouth
