Features This is the Catamaran for those of you who want a modern cruising multihull that actually sails! "Mai Pen Rai" (Thai for No Problem) is the boat John Sawyer designed and built for himself based on his Coastal Classic winner TL Systems. She is set up in a way that she is very easy to sail. The owner reports “Under sail she will regularly sail in the low teens and even in relatively light winds she will generally achieve 6-7 knots and up to just under 18 knots”. Johns wife said SHE would only come out sailing with him if he built a full bridgedeck with galley / dinette up, and so the yacht has a cruising interior with all the creature comforts. Major Refit by Richard Edlin 2013/14 and new rotating mast & rigging 2016, Main & Furling Genoa 2016, deck & cockpit paint 2019.
