Travel the world and cruise in safety and comfort. This blue water designed, 5-cabin Privilege 482 catamaran is known for strength, stability, and sailing performance, not to mention its luxurious interior. We have lived aboard for the past 10 years--nearly exclusively at anchor--and have continuously updated and improved her (almost every system and piece of equipment is new since 2012, with major 'refits' performed 2013 and 2020). She has everything you need to start your next adventure immediately. This is not a project boat and you can step aboard and push off to wherever you want. Some of the highlights include a custom hard top, solar, water maker, diesel genset, dive compressor, new dinghy and outboard, new sails, and new rigging. 

In addition to all the information provided below, feel free to look through our blog at We've been quite open about all the good and bad that comes with cruising and boat ownership.

What we like most about this boat

Perry is a rock-solid, well-built boat that we have trusted completely to keep our family safe. Privileges were semi-custom and are renowned for their robustness of build. Compare the size and quality of the rigging, boom, mast and interior woodwork used on Perry to a typical production boat and you'll see why they inspire confidence. We have crossed 3 of the world's 4 oceans and the peace of mind we gained from being in such a strong boat is priceless.

The decks are high enough that she is a dry boat even in large seas. She's fast and stable in trade wind conditions. In lighter winds (less than 8 knots) she's not breaking any speed records (she's built with too much fiberglass and resin for that), but the spinnakers keep her at a good pace. Every cruising boat is a compromise and this one provides a good balance of safety, comfort, and speed. Perry sails surprisingly well upwind for a catamaran (a function of her deeper, 1.5 m keels).

The spaciousness has been perfect for our liveaboard family over the last decade. Each of our two children has the privacy of their own cabin. There is an extra cabin for guests and another that we use for storage. There is plenty of table and floor space for entertaining, school, playing, and exercise (it makes a difference on passages and days when you're stuck on the boat).

There is tons of storage on this boat (including under all the settees of the main saloon). More importantly for a catamaran, the weight of extra gear and other heavy items does not slow down this boat as much as it would many lighter catamarans.

We love the huge kitchen. It makes all the difference and the boat feels like home, rather than 'camping' and making due in a cramped space.  Having entertained and lived aboard for many years, we definitely appreciate our galley 'down'. The mess of cooking is contained out of sight and the galley isn't taking up valuable saloon space. We also appreciate the extra room and counter space that our galley offers. We have made some great meals on board and there has been room to teach our kids to cook as well.

Accommodations and layout:

Sleeps up to 10 comfortably. There are 5 separate cabins, four with an en suite. Forward cabins have separate shower stalls. The center nacelle also contains a cabin with a queen sized bed, although this was typically used by the "crew" and is not a full height cabin. Cabins equipped with fans.

Bathrooms all have electric flush heads, plumbed for a choice of fresh or salt water (starboard rear head remains a manual toilet as a backup in case of electrical issues).

Central saloon is large and open with 2 tables that can seat 10 (more if folding chairs are used). One table has built in storage, the other has a slide out bar. A wall-mounted monitor makes watching shows and movies easy.

The starboard side of the salon has a dedicated navigation station with a large desk (storage underneath) and adjustable chair.

The cockpit is similarly large with 2 tables and even more seating options. Custom enclosures keep the rain out and can provide additional shade at anchor.

The galley features loads of counter space and a proper 'house' sized deep double sink with Kohler faucet (new 2013). There is a large, built-in front-opening refrigerator (reinsulated 2013) cooled by an Isotherm evaporator plate unit (air and water cooled; compressor new 2013, keel cooler and condenser new 2020). A  separate, large top-opening freezer (reinsulated 2013) is cooled by an Isotherm Magnum with eutectic holding plate (new 2013). The freezer is a water cooled unit plumbed into the port water tank for efficiency and to prevent the marine growth issues found when using raw water.

Cooking is easy on a Force 10 4-burner gas stove with oven and broiler (new 2013). Big enough to roast a small turkey! LPG is supplied from the outside, vented propane locker. A galley mounted solenoid and gas detection unit allow for remote turning on/off of the LPG (new 2020). 

Engine room access is from the outside in the cockpit. This keeps the noise and smells associated with the engines separate and out of the living space.

Hull and topsides                               

The cockpit is fully covered with a custom hardtop that is vastly larger than the canvas dodger that originally came with the boat. It is fiberglass supported by sturdy aluminum supports with new stainless steel handrails installed in 2012. The hardtop holds the solar panels and allows easy access when stowing the main sail.

Heavy-duty stainless steel dinghy davits support a 3.4 meter RIB and 15 hp outboard while at sea, high enough to be clear of the waves. The 4:1 pulley system allows the RIB to be stowed quickly.

Wide side decks with multiple handhold options allow for safe movement around the boat while at sea.

All hatches were replaced with Lewmar low-profile hatches (new 2012).

LED spreader mounted deck lights (white/red, new 2013) are both super bright and dimmable and make nighttime deck work safer. 

Blue LED cockpit & transom courtesy lights (new 2015)

The topsides outer hulls are Awlgrip (2020/22). Coppercoat bottom paint applied in 2020 (7 coats, sprayed) over West systems 422 barrier coat. All the below-water through hulls and sea cocks were replaced in 2016 with new Tru-design composite, non-corrosive fittings, including the optional high-strength collar.

Both rudders rebuilt with new solid 40 mm 318 stainless steel rudder stock in 2020. Rudders are filled with a lightweight, solid epoxy filler to prevent water intrusion. 

Docking: 10 Fenders and dock lines (new 2022)

The main deck has hatches for engine room access. No need to tear apart your boat to access the engines. 

Both engines are equipped with dual Racor filter systems and push-button electric fuel pumps for easy bleeding. 2x AlgaeX fuel conditioners (some say they work, some say its snake oil. We've never had the diesel bug, though.)

Water and Plumbing

There are four heads. The two forward heads have separate shower stalls. The aft heads have pull out faucets if a shower is desired. Each head drains to a shower pan with a manually activated pump out. There is also a separate shower room in the starboard hull, but this has been re-purposed into a wet/scuba locker. The exterior port transom of the boat features a handheld shower.

There are three Jabsco Quiet Flush household electric macerating toilets (new in 2013) and one Jabsco hand-pump toilet. All heads can be supplied by either sea water or fresh water with 2-way valve selectors.

A 25-gallon holding tank was installed in 2013 and is connected to the port forward toilet via a selection valve (tank/overboard). Holding tank can be emptied either via deck fitting or by gravity draining of tank to submerged through hull.

Hot water is created by either running the port engine or a 230 VAC heating element. A 20 gallon IsoTherm hot water tank stores hot water. Note: Electrical heating element is currently burned out, but a spare is aboard if you wish to restore this functionality.

The fresh water system is supplied by a Jabsco Paramax 4 pump (4.3 GPM, new 2018) and is pre-filtered before distribution to the faucets. A spare house water pump is onboard.

All water and diesel tanks have senders that connect to a navigation station mounted Tank Level Indicator (new 2014) so you immediately know the amount of fuel and water in each tank.

Watermaker: CruiseRO 35 GPH watermaker (new 2012). System runs off the 230VAC supplied by the generator. Typically produces above the 35 GPH rating (40-50 GPH). 2 new membranes are also aboard and in sealed packaging.
