My wife and I bought Azul, a Nauticat 33, last March after finding her for sale near our home. We had not considered a Nauticat before, but we looked at her and fell in love. The Nauticat 33 is the biggest 33 foot sailboat you will ever find. She has ample room to spend a night, a weekend, or a month aboard and we were impressed by her sturdiness. Built in Finland for the rough North Sea, the Nauticats are heavy displacement motorsailers. Everything about them says “solid”. My wife is new to boating and I wanted her to feel safe and secure. The heavy displacement offered a sea-kindly ride in rough waters, and being able to be in the pilothouse made my wife feel safe and secure. I liked the reliable and simple Ford-Lehman engine, and the fact that even though she had old teak decks, there is NO CORE to the fiberglass beneath…it is solid GRP. This meant that even though the teak was old, there was no waking of the deck below due to a rotted core from water intrusion. The decks could be refinished easily. I also liked the fact that the previous owner had the hull peeled and barrier coated professionally, so blisters would never be a problem in the future. I always say you buy not only the boat, but the previous owner. The previous owner of Azul was a meticulous FAA electronics technician who rewired the entire boat and kept it ship-shape and all the systems working well through a program of regular preventative maintenance. We bought Azul with the intent on keeping her long term, but eventually moving to a larger sailboat someday. As such I set to work immediately restoring the exterior brightwork and teak decks, as well as reworking some of the plumbing. Almost all brightwork has been stripped bare and refinished with Cetol Natural Teak and Gloss, and we are currently refinishing the decks. I have re-plumbed the freshwater system to ensure that the weak point of the outlet attachment to the tank would not be a problem in the future. I replaced the heat exchanger on the engine, as they usually go bad at around 2000 hours and I did not want any problems in the future. Alas, a great opportunity fell into my lap at an inopportune time. Not wanting to turn down an opportunity that I was sure would not ever come my way again, we recently bought a 44 ft. center cockpit sailboat and are now 2-boat owners. We love Azul and hate to give her up, especially after having put so much labor into touching her up, but we know that two boats is one too many to maintain and try to sail, so, reluctantly, Azul is on the market again. In my opinion, the only thing she is lacking is Air-conditioning, but the good thing is I have already bought a unit and it just needs to be installed. It will go with the boat. We hope we can find owners who will appreciate and love her as much as we have.
