Wharram Builders and Friends

A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts

MAHUINI was built 1995-1998 with the best materials (all invoices available) and to a very high standard. The present owner has sailed her for 12 years and has just finished a singlehanded circumnavigation.

MAHUINI is optimized for a small crew or singlehanded sailing. This includes some slight modifications to the plans: a conventional rig for easy handling, less bunks and more comfortable living space, there is even a desk with a comfortable office chair. With little effort you can bring her back to the plans, then she is great for cruising with family. For outside living in warm climate there are 2 large cockpits under a Bimini of 10 sqm/110sqft.  I had the command pod when I bought her - and never missed it after removal, but I would miss my huge cockpit every day, for safe reefing, meeting friends, laying in the hammock, gymnastics, sleeping under the stars…

MAHUINI is in absolutely sound condition, well maintained and “ready to go” immediately. Sails and outboards are from 2012.

we know this boat and ingo very well. we meet him 2006 in new Zealand the first time on a boat yard.

we just started building our tiki46 and he was already since years on the way with his boat.  

ingo is a very good sailor and took and takes care of his boat a lot. he is not patching up stuff. he only uses the best materials and has his boat i perfect conditions all the time. he is one of the few sailors we meet on our way, who takes really care of his boat.

he does all the repairs him self and this better them most "professional" boat builders.

i would take his boat anytime to sail with it anywhere... if you want a wharram to jump on and sail away for good.... this is the one...

we sailed with him side by side though the north pacific till the Philippines ... here some of our pictures...

Are you coming by Florida or going direct to England from the Caribbean?



My plan is to go directly from the Caribbean (US Virgin Islands) to England.
