EURO CATAMARAN 2000 
'Indio Pacific' built in Brisbane by Bob Rochester.

G'day Bruce, The boat was launched on June 4.  Spent the next 2 months commissioning.

Now at Lady Musgrave lagoon and heading to Cairns. The yacht is well up to expectations and it provides all the security and comfort that we expected.   Comfort is superb and cruising range excellent.  Last year was mainly light conditions where the Ghoster was most used and was carried up to a boat speed of 7 knots and over the deck speed of 12 knots. Higher winds suited the Genoa and Main with boat speeds up to 11 knots.

When motoring the Yanmar 4 JH4-HTE's were comfortable and economical at 2000 revs giving 6 knots. At max revs a speed of 10 knots can be relied on.  Most appreciated features - EchoTEC model 900 AML - 2  Watermaker, Mase 11.1 Generator, 1000 watt of Solar, 24v Alternators on Engines - All of this enables the installation of 230v ac. This provides excellent refrigeration, water supply and generally best use of household appliances..  The other striking feature of Indigo would be spaciousness in the limited number of main cabins.

Boat is well up to expectations. Have experienced some heavy weather and are impressed by the stable ride especially to windward. Judy can still use the vacuum cleaner at 30 knots +  She is alo impressed by her washing machine and dishwasher not to mention the deep freeze !!  Large Rig but easily handled by 2 persons.

Good range and 10 knots under power or sail
You have achieved this in all respects Bruce.
Best regards, Bob and Judy Rochester-

G'day Bruce,  I have your email that was forwarded from our previous address. Please note new contact details.

The boat was launched on June 4, in a hurry because  of poor future tides.. Spent the next 2 months commissioning.

Now at Lady Musgrave lagoon and heading to Cairns.

The yacht is well up to expectations and it provides all the security and comfort that we expected

I don't know how to attach photos to email , but when we get to Cairns , you can be sure of copies.

The plan is to stay on the boat for the next 2 years and then to hand over to our Son.  Speak to you soon. Best regards, Bob and Judy Rochester--
