A well-maintained and reliable catamaran, a 1999 Kelsall Tonga 39, S/V Santa Gallina, boasts a thoughtful design and meticulous construction. Originally built by its first owner and builder from Switzerland, this catamaran was assembled over seven years using top-quality materials.


Upon acquiring the boat almost three years ago, the current owners ensured the vessel remains in optimal condition. Electronics have been upgraded to state-of-the-art Raymarine systems, offering enhanced navigation and control capabilities. The addition of lithium batteries, along with upgraded solar panels and Victron controllers, ensures ample power supply for extended journeys. 


Recent maintenance efforts include the application of six coats of fresh Cooper Coat antifouling, guaranteeing protection for up to 10 years. The hull sides have been meticulously painted with polyurethane, while all valves have been replaced with new bronze Grocco valves. Steering cables have also been replaced, ensuring smooth maneuverability and control. 


The boat features a well-designed structure akin to racing boats. Electrical systems, like those found in racing boats, are left uncovered, allowing for easy access and maintenance of critical components while at sea. 


This well-maintained catamaran is fully operational, ready for sailing. With its strong and safe construction and practical design, it's the perfect vessel for your next adventure on the water.
