Description: Malcolm Tennant Turissimo 10 MK3
Our season of live aboard cruising of the Qld coast has come to an end and we must now return to our land lives, so we are selling Dasyure.
Dasyure is a Tennant Turissimo MK3 11m (36ft) sailing catamaran with a 6.7m beam. The width makes Dasyure a very roomy boat below decks compared to others in her class. It has 8 comfortable berths, plus a full single berth on the saloon couch. This boat is very stable and comfortable at anchor and at sea.
Our family of 5 have lived onboard while cruising up and down the Qld coast. We have had a great time. We learnt to sail on this boat. We have taken her to the outer reef and up rivers. We have had in the most beautiful anchorages and beaches. We have had her out of the water for maintenance and have made many significant improvements to her along the way including renewing through-hulls and seacocks, re-wiring to the switchboard and new trampolines. We have had the unfortunate experience of having weathered storms at anchor and at sea however we are pleased in the way that the boat handled the conditions.
Dasyure was built in 1996. The exterior is stylish in a sleek modern way. It is a good-looking boat; she often gets comments from other sailors in the anchorage. Her wood-trim interior is dated and would look fancy after a refresh if that is your thing.
Dasyure is a great boat for value orientated buyers looking to get into cruising at an affordable price. Dasyure would suit a family or couple or even friends going in syndicate (as was the ownership before us).
Like all boats, Dasyure requires on-going maintenance and there are further improvements that could be done to add value, function and amenity.
We are currently sailing south. We are not keen sail to you for an inspection, you'll have to come to us (got to know that you are serious). We are happy to consider delivery/ extended handover with the new owners following the sale.

The price is negotiable to some degree.

House power is supplied by 480ah of deep cycle AGM batteries new Sep 23 located in starboard hull. The cabin is wired for 12v throughout. The cabin has USB charging ports throughout. 240v is supplied through the 600W inverter or the generator.
The house battery bank is charged by the 700 watts of solar panels and the alternator via a 40amp DC-DC charge controller (Red Arc BCDC1240D). This is the solar regulator and it is the voltage sensitive relay which sends charge (profiled to suit the battery type and status) from the alternator.
Engine Start battery is a 700 cold cranking amp (new Aug 23) sealed lead acid start battery (this is a specific cranking battery intended to be housed inside a living space). The start battery is charged via the 80 amp alternator (new Nov 23).
Anchor winch battery is a dual purpose 480 cranking amp/ deep cycle battery which can be paralleled to the start battery for charging or for starting in the case of a flat start battery.
Generator 1kVa Yamaha 4-stroke unleaded portable sine wave generator. The generator is used to run 240v appliances (laptops, blender etc) and to top up the house batteries after a couple of cloudy days.

Sail Inventory
Main sail - fully battened with lazy jacks to sail bag on boom, Genoa - furling around the forestay, Screecher - furling, and in the sail locker; Storm Jib, Tri Sail,
The Screecher/Code Zero is a great sail for cruising and is often deployed on its own without the main. We have achieved 10+knts in 15-20knts. This sail is good for wind angles up to just forward of the beam and dead-down wind.
General sailing speed over ground is 5.5 - 6 knots with top speed been 10.9 in the right conditions.
Mast / Rigging
The vessel is rigged as a masthead sloop with a deck stepped aluminium mast with aluminium boom and supported by stainless-steel wire rigging and a single set of inline spreaders. Aft swept quarter backstays, Diamond jumpers and forestay rigged with a Profurl furler on the headsail and a continuous furler for the screecher which is flown from a prodder fitted on the fore beam and secured with wire pennants to the stems of each hull. Alloy mast of 40ft. Half height mast ladder. Standing rigging is 13 years.
Running rigging mostly comes back to the cockpit for ease of sail short handed however further amendments would need to be made to confidently sail single handed in all conditions. The running rig is ready for a renew.
Deck Gear
Sheet Winches 2x Arco 44,2x Arco 30,2x Arco 8.1x mast mounted halyard winch.
Anchor winch Maxwell RC8 (new Aug 23).
Main anchor - Rockna 25 with 60m of 8mm short link chain and bridle. This is the ideal set up for this boat. We have been in a storm at anchor in which 5 other boats dragged and ended washed up on the beach. We had 40m of chain out and held fast on the Rockna 25.
Secondary/kedging anchor - sand plough 5m chain and 40m+ rode. We have the switches to wire this to be controlled from the cockpit if sailing single handed however I prefer to control the winch from the foredeck.
Bathroom/laundry - Marine toilet with macerator pump. Holding tank. Shower with hot water from engine heat exchange. Large deep laundry sink for handwashing of clothes. Fresh foot-pump to the bathroom sink.

Storage - Storage in the boat is excessive, you will not want for any room to put any gear.
Navdesk - Full size desk with storage for maps and tools.
Centre cockpit with excellent 360 deg views. Has hardtop coverage. Set up for safety while sailing. Helmsman's chairs sits two. Clear windscreen with zip down section. Large back seat sits 4, great for any visitors feeling queasy.

3.1m Swift inflatable with ridged floor. Retractable sand wheels. Sun cover for long life. No air leaks. 9.8hp Tohatsu outboard. This tender is a good size, no too big to be too heavy to drag up the beach, not too small/slow as it can carry 6 pers. An inflatable tender is a must for snorkelling IMHO.
