DP15 ‘Desiderata’ was designed and built as a fully wheelchair accessible Dazcat Power and launched in 2008. Superb and smooth cruising can be enjoyed from the bright and spacious saloon or flybridge and sun-lounging area.

Desiderata is designed to comfortably accommodate your family and friends with three double cabins, each with ensuite. There is a twin double in each hull and a master with large wet room on the saloon deck.

The current owner has enjoyed Deciderata for the last five years, cruising with family and friends. Due to the owner’s change in circumstances this truly unique boat is now available to buy in a very rare opportunity.

Description

“Dazcat Power 15 -A SUPER SMART DESIGN THAT EXCELS IN A NUMBER OF ROLES – A REAL GAME-CHANGER

With a range of approx 300 nm at cruising speed of 12 – 15knots and a max of 25knots, Deciderata can be whatever you need: A coastal cruiser for exceptional trips with family and friends; a channel hopping delight for quick getaways; a weekend home away from home; or liveaboard in the sunshine?

The sleek, elegantly minimalist Dazcat design is certainly all those things, but exceptionally, it is also fully accessible.

Launched in 2008, Desiderata is truly a remarkable and very cool boat! Her Dazcat lines, sumptuous lounge areas above and below decks, and innovative solutions all have the wow factor. A major refit in 2021/22, overseen by the original project manager, has brought this beauty right up to date.

Vessel Details

Dazcat Power 15 ‘Desiderata

The DP15 power catamaran is an exceptional, wheelchair accessible catamaran designed for comfortable cruising. Desiderata had major works done in 2021/ 22, overseen by the original Project Manager. This included: Topsides, foredecks and sidedecks repainted; fresh Coppercoat antifouling; new and additional eco-teak exterior decking; and new Rolls Royce water jets.

GRP construction is robust but light; the advantages of a light boat include greater fuel efficiency, which equals greater range. The Vector Joystick controls make helming a delight whether at the saloon pilotage station or on the flybridge and manouverability couldn’t be easier.

Desiderata can be easily handled by a couple or a group of family or friends who love the exhilaration of being on the water. Her large tankage and efficient cruising will allow you to enjoy a larger cruising ground and give a greater choice of destinations, whether weekending or long-distance cruising.

The DP 15 features a horseshoe shaped flybridge with a second helm position, seating area, wet-bar with fridge and BBQ and a sun-lounging area. The external lift enables safe wheelchair access to the flybridge.

Ergonomics were high on the agenda during design and build. The flybridge helm seats can be easily retracted so a wheelchair can comfortably fit behind the console when needed. The saloon helm seats raise and lower with push button control for ease of transfer.

The clean interior styling is bright and airy with panoramic 180 degree forward views from the interior helm station. Sliding doors allow easy wheelchair access to the owner’s cabin, wet room and aft cockpit, all of which  have also had close attention to ease of use and movement.

The wet room is immediately adjacent to the aft swim deck, opposite the owner’s cabin and at the rear of the saloon for easy access from all areas. The well kitted, spacious galley is designed to be sociable. Each hull has a double cabin and head with shower, accessible via steps.

The jet drives coupled with the hull forms were developed to offer economy and comfort of ride. The water jets also minimise risk of entanglements and benefits access to shallower drafts as opposed to exposed drives. The wet deck deflects the water travelling between the hulls and creates a water vapour damping to reduce slamming and helping to cushion the ride over waves.

There’s a small fold up ramp for quick and easy access to the pontoon. A long passarelle stored on the flybridge can be positioned with the crane to allow stern to mooring and wheelchair access in a variety of locations. This extends out to the pontoon and enables passangers to wheel onto the aft swim platform. The aft platform not only lifts to deck level but also extends fully into the water to maximise accessibility.

A systems panel by the saloon helm station provides a clear overview of all the onboard systems and their status.
