The Wendon 601 Catamaran is a unique design with many great features. Catamarans have many strong attributes, one of which is that they are inherently stable and make for a comfortable feel on the water. Catamarans also provide unique spaces for designers to work with which results in many creative design features, a prime example is this vessels very impressive galley which has a view only second to the bridge. The exterior spaces are numerous and provide many entertaining and private outdoor space options. The enclosed bridge has an excellent view, additional seating, a day head, and a full deck with a protected walkaround.
Wendon Manufacturing has been building quality motor yachts in the Pacific Northwest for many years. This is a very impressive 63' boat and it has the space and feel of a much larger vessel. Accommodations are provided for up to eight in four cabins which are serviced with four heads. The twin 660hp, low hour diesels provide ample power to run this vessel in 7 - 18 knot range . Four hydraulic thrusters, three control stations, 34" props, & seven remote cameras all aid to the ease of operation.
This particular 601 is a great opportunity, the builder priced has priced the vessel to sell and someone is going to pick up an exceptional next to new boat at a price comparable or less than many well used vessels on the market. A review of the photos and full specifications will convey the excellent value being offered here. Contact the team at Freedom today for further details or to book a viewing.

Pilot House and Upper Deck
A beautiful staircase leads to the Pilothouse and Upper Deck area. The Upper Level on the 600 Series Catamarans is a source of joy and pride at shore or under way. The custom settee and table provide comfortable seating and the large reversible helm station seat converts the pilothouse area into a second Salon.
The helm station provides the captain with full control of the 600 Catamaran. Electronic controls are protected with a full backup system. Instrumentation is very complete, and includes engine monitors, Furuno 12" touch screen plotter & depth, separate Furuno NavNet radar and plotter, depth sounder, electronic heading sensor, binnacle compass, radio, autopilot, rudder angle indicators and a color monitor for the 7 surveillance cameras for docking, engine room monitoring and anchor watch.
A large chart table is starboard of the helm and has large chart storage drawers beneath and additional convenient storage below. Dockside, at anchor, or underway, the Pilothouse / Lounge provides a great area for relaxing, or enjoying a beverage, snack or meal. When under way, it becomes nearly dreamlike, with an incredibly quiet but breathtaking ride.
The Galley/Dining Facilities
The well-appointed galley is situated forward on the main deck, and is equipped for the most discerning gourmet. Amenities include a full size refrigerator/freezer, four burner ceramic range with oven, convection microwave, and in-sink disposal. The large double Corian sink also features a Corian insert cutting board and extension faucet. The full size dishwasher and trash compactor are cabinet enclosed. A dining nook is starboard. Corian countertops and the teak floor add beauty and practicality to this spacious galley area, and the cabinets and storage areas are incredible.

Main Salon and Lounging
The heavy duty entry doors aft in the Main Salon slide open effortlessly. As you enter the Salon, large cedar lined hanging lockers are conveniently located port and starboard. The Salon and Dining Area on the main deck define luxury and spacious design. To the right of the entrance to the stairway is the entertainment centre incorporating a large LCD Flat Screen TV. The house stereo system features DVD, CD and FM with zoned speakers throughout the yacht. The multitude of lighting options and the gorgeous ceiling inset enhance the elegant area. Custom window coverings stow at any position, and the custom dining area defines the excellent craftsmanship at Wendon. The power and control panels place all magnetic circuit breakers for all main level circuits in the Salon forward.
The main level of the 600 Catamarans which includes the main salon, dining area and galley forward is laid out with virtually no clutter, and allows for extensive interior layout and design to fit individual needs. It is amazingly spacious, with an interior beam of nearly 18 feet. Cabinet storage is awesome, extensively provided on both port and starboard sides in addition to the extensive drawer and cabinet storage provided in the galley. Lighting includes recessed lighting around the perimeter of the ceiling, custom inset lighting above port and starboard custom wall fixtures, the dining room hanging fixture, and extensive Xelogen lighting throughout the salon and galley areas.
Port and starboard accommodations are located below and are accessed by sets of stairs descending from the main salon. Each side has a twin berth stateroom forward and a queen berth stateroom aft. All staterooms have well appointed heads with toilet, shower and sink. Each stateroom provides excellent storage, full cedar lined lockers, and Xelogen overhead lighting, perimeter rope lighting, and incandescent reading lamps.
