Quest 50 Sailing Catamaran
At 50′ with clean, elegant lines – her waterline length is ideal for overnight or day-charter work with a kick on the performance side. The Quest 50 is also characterised by easily driven hulls, a performance-orientated sail plan, dagger boards and a layout chosen for its dual purpose of overnight and day-charter work.
The Quest 50 is being home-built by an advocate in Buhrmansdrif in the North West province of South Africa, 1350 km from Cape Town. Hundreds of km from the sea, it is an unlikely location for boat-building, but this project is nothing short of impressive.
The owner builder is nurturing his love for sailing by constructing an impressive catamaran. Once complete, the owner and his wife will launch the catamaran in Cape Town and sail to the Caribbean, where they will retire.
