SWISH was built as a luxury, performance cruising catamaran. She has a history of success as a crewed charter yacht for many years.
She has been professionally maintained throughout her life and her appearance is of a much newer boat.
With four ensuite queen cabins and a separate single crew cabin, the Voyage Mayotte is a perfect platform for private family cruising or crewed charter use.
SWISH was the last Mayotte 47 finished by Scholtz Marine in Cape Town, South Africa prior to selling the molds to Voyage Yachts and were built to the highest International standard with meticulous attention to detail. All Mayotte Cats are CE Certified and widely acknowledged for their quality, performance, ease of handling and low maintenance.
If you are looking for a fast, spacious, and well equipped bluewater catamaran at a very attractive price, then look no further than SWISH.

This is the last Fred Scholtz Marine hull. Scholtz had been recognized as the largest boat builder in South Africa. He then sold the molds to Voyage Yachts who changed the yacht to be a charter boat with many of the customized features eliminated. The outboard cockpit lockers were altered so as not to intrude on the aft berths.
SWISH has the interior space of most 55' cats in a more manageable size. She has sailed over 60,000 ocean miles in her 18 years including 6500 miles from S. Africa to the Caribbean and over 5 round trips to New England. As a luxury crewed charter yacht, any fixture is replaced at the first sign of wear. She was built as a Mayotte 47 but later had a 3’ bowsprit added.
