About this Sailboat:

PDQ catamarans have earned an excellent reputation as fast, comfortable cruisers. Slow Dance is a very-well maintained example of the very rare LRC (Long Range Cruiser) model which features tri-axial knitted fabric, vinylester resin and additional reinforcement in high stress areas. This model also enhanced economy, performance, reliability and safety by upgrading to inboard diesels, instead of gasoline outboards, as well as additional tankage, strength, and safety features.
