One of a kind Matrix Yachts Vision 450 Catamaran for sale. 4 Cabin version
The ongoing refit over last 24 months has seen over $200K invested. No expense has been spared in the quality of equipment installed.

Happy Time has been outfitted with the sole intent for the owner and family to Blue Water cruise and circumnavigate. The emphasis on being “self-sufficient” was key in every step of the refit. Happy Time is prepared and ready to go anywhere.

It should be noted that the Solar charging and battery systems was installed as a complete end to end system. Upgraded solar panels on a custom Arch provide autonomy from the diesel generator, the 4 x LiFePO4 batteries are $3500 each and provide a total of 1200Ah of DC storage capacity. The final piece of this system is a correctly spec?d engine charging system designed to meet the requirements of LiFePO4 batteries.

The Vision 450 is a modern innovative design, which incorporates build features found in performance catamarans. The fiberglass hulls are a vacuum-bagged sandwich construction using vinylester resin, E-Glass, and a high-density rigid PVC foam coring.

The bridge deck consists of a polyethylene honeycomb material, Nida-Core, which has a very high strength-to-weight ratio and good sound dampening qualities.

Tricel (resin impregnated honeycomb material) is used in all the doors and cabinetry to limit weight without compromising strength.

The keels are solid glass, without any coring. They are attached to the hulls separately being sacrificial without compromising the structural integrity of the hulls.

The profile of the yacht is dominated by the long, sloping coach roof, a feature that?s enhanced visually by the slanting, accentuating windows that also taper forward. A unique addition is the unusually large forward deck complete with several big lockers and a pair of hatches.

There?s a hard dodger over the cockpit, the layout for which is centered upon the large dining table and wraparound settee to port. The raised steering station with all instruments and engine controls readily at hand, as well as the mainsheet, traveler controls, clutches, and related running rigging are to starboard. The fractional rig includes a fully battened main with generous roach and a high-cut genoa as working canvas.

Quote from the owner;
“I have handled her in 45 knots sustained winds and 8-10 seas and she performed without issue and was stable and comfortable while my kids slept soundly below.!”
