This is Ciel Bleu

And she is for sale.

The Maldives 32 is a great boat, unlike many cruising catamarans she is amazingly fast in light weather, you will have no difficulty keeping up with any cruiser up to 45 feet and yet she is roomy and comfortable.  She offers great privacy for two couples or can accommodate a family of five with all the children getting a cabin of their own.

Her styling was way ahead of its time and with her plumb stems she looks right up to date.   The twin keels mean that she can be run very economically from a drying mooring and is as at home up a muddy creek as she is reaching across the English Channel at over 9 Knots. For the more adventurous she is capable of transiting the Canal de Midi and can therefore reach the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea without crossing Biscay, though she would be quite at home there as well.


​We have owned  Ciel Bleu for fifteen years and have come to love her for both her looks and performance and for her practicality.  However it is now time for us to move on and we have bought a larger Fountaine Pajot catamaran.  We are confident that you will find her more appealing internally than any Maldives currently on the market and that her new owners will come to appreciate the many virtues of the design.
