stephen and estelle cockcroft are owners of catamaran guru

Being successful catamaran broker-consultants isn’t just business, it’s our lifestyle. We are Stephen & Estelle. 25+ years ago in a friend’s backyard in Cape Town, South Africa, we built our first boat then sailed the world. Discovering new places, meeting extraordinary people, and enjoying unique experiences was fun, not work! We've co-owned a catamaran manufacturer, consulted with catamaran manufacturers, managed charter companies, and taught sailing. These experiences and living aboard for 22+ years have taught us important lessons that we happily share with fellow sailors and yacht owners like you. 

Today, Catamaran Guru™ is the number one go-to company for catamaran buyers. As experienced yacht brokers and liveaboard catamaran owners ourselves, we help you realize your cruising dreams safely and comfortably while maintaining more of your investment. Whether you are a cruiser looking for a well priced, well-equipped catamaran or want to reduce cost of ownership by placing your catamaran in a charter fleet, we have the expertise to help you.

Valkyrie is a 2002 Catana 582 Ocean Class. Similar to the 581 with additional luxury features. Located in NYC - United States. Customs duty paid, state sales tax paid - British VAT paid by previous owner. 

This is an owner's version - starboard hull has extensive space for main bunk and huge bathroom, and laundry room - and locking door!. Port side has two similarly sized cabins with en-suite bathrooms, and doors! Another "skipper's" cabin is accessible through a deck hatch forward of the main cabin on the starboard side.

April 2018 Survey by insurance company - found in great condition. Also surveyed by Coast Guard - with similar results. Survey available upon request.

The Catanas, specifically the 582 series are, IMO, the best ocean cruising vessels available, Along with the major and extremely beneficial enhancements I have made, make this probably the best Ocean Cruiser available. Easily shorthanded operation - for one person - 2 not a problem...Whether local waters or Ocean cruising, and its ready to go - now - 5 minutes notice and we can cross and Ocean.

And you can, too.

As far as cosmetics. Many items have been changed, however, I wouldn't mind replacing the ceiling, curtains, and a few other cosmetics are a bit shabby.  But, engines, steering, motoring sailing, electronics, navigation it is perfect and ready to go. Has a fresh coat of bottom paint, zincs, and Max-Prop grease (I usually grease the props by snorkel) while being surveyed in April 2018 

We do several 4-hour captained (by me) charters per summer in the protected waters of the Hampton's. People love it. Great to see and feel how wonderful the vessel is through others' experiences. Comments such as "This is the best day of my life", " I'm having so much fun", etc, etc.

It is a large and beautiful vessel, very safe and sturdy.

Valkyrie is docked in NYC for 2018 , except for July/August in Sag Harbor, NY

This is used in conjunction with windless control to stand near the anchor and drive boat up the anchor chain - very worthwhile and valuable. Designed so one person can control the boat, and windless with one hand at the windless for perfect vision and operation.
  • MT-3 Style Manual engine controls as backup - ready to mount quickly at helm station in event of KE4 failure..
  • Reefing lines to main sail run underneath bridegedeck - to main cockpit winch. This works well. However, the lazy jack lines can disrupt the process. I have designed, and installed, and debugged another system to lower and remove the lazy jack system from the cockpit. So never a need to go forward.
