This Ron Given Voyager 14.3 m Catamaran with Dibley Designed Interior is part finished.  For sale due to the owner’s personal circumstances and needs to be completed by the new owner. The details here are a best effort to identify the work completed and equipment included, however any interested party must inspect and do their own inventory.
This vessel has a Ron Given hull and topsides that were undercoated in 2013 using Interprotect (from AkzoNobel).

The interior, decks and cabin top were redesigned by Dibley Marine in 2011/2012 with a layout to suit global sailing.
Nina Heatley of Clever Fox Projects provided structural advice including for composite chainplates, forward beam, deck pressure requirements, cockpit sole, seats and coming, deck patching, mullions etc.
The two engines were serviced by Yanmar (CHCH) in June 2016.

Overview of layout 
Fore Deck 

There are 6 hatches to the fore deck forward of the cabin.
There is a cut out in the deck forward of the amidship window, for a concealed capstan. This will require to be filled in in favour over a concealed capstan. The beam is in place to enable the trampoline to be fitter to either side. Also for the chain to the capstan.

The cabin top extends aft over the cockpit approximately 1.8m. There will be twin helms - the formwork has been done. Access to the sea is aft to port or starboard down the enclosed stair case. There are two hatch openings in the cockpit underfoot with a temporary wooden hatch top within each. The aft has the rudder stock boss and the forward one the engine access. (this has been moved forward)

The headroom throughout the entire vessel is average of at least 1.9m. The saloon dining area is forward facing aft. The interior has plywood to the seating areas, also a start has been made to galley area, to starboard of the dining area, only so as to guess that that is where the galley will be. The entry is from the cockpit, via sliding doors, yet to be supplied. The same applies to where the navigation area is to be, to port of the saloon. The cut outs have been made for the windows (no windows).

Port pontoon 
Accessed down three steps from starboard aft. There is an aft double berth,, forward is an area for combo washing machine dryer, further forward storage/wardrobe area and then bathroom with a head, shower and vanity intended.

Starboard pontoon 
Two sets of stairs down – aft to double berth, forward to double berth and storage or children’s bunks. In between stairs is area for bath
