   Shantiway is a 2012 custom designed 52-foot catamaran built in Key West, Florida at Tropical Solutions USA, inc. at the Key West Boatworks shop by Bruce Darby. It has a 22 foot beam, and has a draft of 28 inches, but only 18 inches with the kick-up rudder system in use. The modern schooner rig stands 40 feet above the water,
   It is powered by twin 9.9 Yamaha 4-stroke, high thrust engines. It has 2 fully battened, full roach identical sails with 2 reef points and a working jib, all built by Sailrite.   Shantiway is perfect for day charters or island hopping throughout the Keys, Caribbean, and points beyond. All lines lead to the cockpit for easy, single-handed sailing. 
   Shantiway has been sold and is happily cruising the caribbean waters around the Yucatan Peninsula...

NOTE: To view the photos more efficiently, please click on each photo page number at the bottom of the page and let the photos load. Once you have clicked on each photo page number, and all the photos have loaded, then simply click on the first photo and use the arrow to click through all the photos in succession. There are a number of repeat photos, and some of them are rotated sideways and a bit out of order, I suppose I have more patience building boats than websites, so thanks for your understanding...
