Technical Data and Equipment:

12m x 6m catamaran (40 ft.)
According to Messbrief 11,98m length for marina-tariffs <12m
Draft 1,15m approx., keels allowing for beaching and improved ( sloping Finn keels for dry traps), good sailing behavior ( little drift on the wind )

Hull Underbody:
Vinyl-ester-hulls underwater, no threat of osmosis,
Quality-antifouling by Hempel (2018 in Darwin)

Topsides & Upperworks:
formstabiles Sperrholz und GFK-Überzug bringen hohe Stabilität bei geringem Gewicht
( information of previous owner: approx. 4,5 tons in ballast / empty
coach roof / deck structure: sandwich constructure with a core of balsa wood -> excellent climate below deck , pleasant interior temperature even in the tropics. ( we never used the 12V-ventilators that we were carying along )
elegant deck layout, toes friendly stepless

mast & rigging:
masthead 14m above deck level
all shrouds changed in 2017
practical + safe: running goods are mostly redirected to the cockpit, for turning / jibing / reef I do not leave the cockpit; so that alone rides are safe ( I crossed the Atlantic solo with Quini 2017 ).
special feature: The double mainsheet is also amazingly easy to handle in a stable and controlled manner, so that I wonder why not more sailors are transferring.

cabin layout:
large, comfortable living room with separate salon bunk, dining table, corner seat (suitable as another guest buoy) and map table in desk format.
In the starboard hull the owner's cabin with double bed, "cupboard space", as well as bath and toilet.
In the port hull the large galley with gas stove, fridge, freezer, etc., a former studio and the cabin with berth in the foredeck.
Special foam mattresses adapt to body shape.
Sufficient storage space, backboxes, sail-locker, anchor box and separate walk-in engine compartments make this cat really spacious.

Condition and maintenance:

Since the construction 1998/99 "owner-maintained" and never chartered.
Since the purchase in 2014 together with 2 friends, we have renewed everything necessary in a comprehensive refit until the departure in November 2017, as you can see from the equipment list.
My motto is: keep it simple. If you really want to sail your boat (and not just park in a marina), keep everything as simple, accessible and easy to maintain as possible. This also makes the maintenance favorable..


Quini (short for “QUINUITUQ“, an Inuit-expression for patience) is a magnificent,widely traveled, light and fast ship. The previous owner, a German-Austrian couple, are Alaska fans, have designed this 40-foot catamaran (with much experience and prior knowledge of their first yacht) ingeniously designed for long-haul, build at Naval Force 3 in La Rochelle on a shipyard (Tropic 40), and sailed from Europe via Polynesia and Hawaii to Alaska and back again.

Quini is a fantastic sailing yacht with which I cross all the oceans and have almost orbited the world in the last 15 months. Unfortunately, my family did not sail at the beginning of the voyage, so I am leaving Quini at the end of the circumnavigation (expected to be in Arrecife / Lanzarote at the beginning of May), which of course will be not easy for me. She is thus ready for the Caribbean and / or next round with new owner.
