Fountaine Pajot Saba 50 with Established Charter Revenue

Balam is absolutely one of the best layout for larger groups of friends and family that want to comfortably cruise together. At 49’ LOA it is a very manageable catamaran to dock, sail, and anchor. The long waterline makes it incredibly safe when the weather comes up. With a full house of 12 guests you can still find private space to soak in the sun or read a book. A generator, water maker, climate control, and plenty of storage make this catamaran a very comfortable long vacation cruiser. This is the boat you want if you plan to sail with larger groups.

Balam has the added value of being a proven financial performer in the West Coast Multihulls Mexico charter fleet, operating out of La Paz with a dedicated full-time captain and crew. She comes with all required documentation and permits for chartering in Mexico, if the new owner chooses to continue. This fully-equipped six cabin/six head adventure platform is perfectly suited to captained charters in the Sea of Cortez, and the owner could use the boat as much, or as little, as they may choose, while substantially offsetting the costs of ownership. She has never been bareboated, making her maiden voyage across the Atlantic from France as part of the ARC Rally fleet in 2017, and then on to Mexico. Shortly thereafter she was placed in charter with WCM, and has been well cared for ever since. She’s a turn-key charter business opportunity!
