The Fabulous Affair is a custom-designed 63 Starlite 2005 Aluminum Catamaran that was built for use in Coastal salt water operation. The hull is reinforced and the high shear of the hulls and bow are designed for coastal cruising. Her modified stern and transom with heavy-duty hinged swim ladder is intended to make this yacht a great snorkel, dive boat and/or excursion party vessel with easy boarding from a launch or after diving.

A major refit was completed in 2010 in preparation for Coast Guard T boat certification, 50 passengers with 10 live aboard guests in mind. Railing heights and other structural safety requirements for compliance with USCG commercial regulations are completed. Refit included; 4 new luxury staterooms, commercial galley topside Tiki Bar. Two Full heads, three showers, and 4 staterooms plus 2 crew quarters provide plenty of room for large parties or extended family getaways. All internal walls are made of fiberglass and consistent with the original materials used by Starlite in the shipyard. The only major requirement remaining to be completed if you want this to be used as a USCG inspected vessel is development of detailed naval architectural drawings of the vessel, which the Seller does not have. However, Fabulous Affair meets or exceeds most ABYC standards as a recreational yacht or for commercial use with a 6-Pack Captains License.

Powered with twin Cummins Mercruiser 1.7 DTi (@ 120 HP) Turbo Charged, inter-cooled diesel engines and a 12kW diesel Westerbeke Generator, Fabulous Affair is economical to operate and maintain. The interior is fully air conditioned and large opening windows provide plenty of light and fresh air when the A/C or heat is not needed. All windows have custom shades.

Currently used as a 4-Bedroom Floating Rental Condo and as a recreational pleasure yacht, this well-appointed yacht can be used as a private yacht, a Coastal Cruiser ideal for a large family, or with the addition of some minor required safety improvements and addition of naval architectural drawings to document the build configuration and details; can be certified by the USCG as a high capacity commercial vessel capable of producing substantial income. Come take a look and you can decide how you want to use this very versatile vessel.
