VOYAGE yachts discontinued production of the VOYAGE 500 in 2010, after masterfully crafting 40 of these beautiful, pure bred, blue water cruising catamarans. Since then, as more and more new designs come to market, the timelessness of the VOYAGE 500 seems to ring louder and louder...
IMILOA was the second to last Voyage 500 built, and her original owner spec'ed her to be an efficient, fast, and comfortable bluewater home.
Her tinted Velvaglo interior, Alcantara ceiling, sand colored countertops, and teak look flooring bring a warmth that perfectly balances with her sunlit and open living arrangements.
Imiloa has received the best of care since new and will be found in totally turn key condition, with less than 1000 hours on engines and genset, an 1800 GPD water maker, solar and wind, washer/dryer, full electronics, the works!
You will not find a better looking, better equipped, better perfoming, or better built catamaran in this size and price range anywhere.
