Finnish-built pilot-saloon cruising yacht from 2011, boasting comprehensive bluewater/liveaboard inventory and custom interior layout, and with just one private owner since new.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Delivered in 2011 as hull No.19 to her current owner, OUMKA is a professionally maintained and privately used example of the Nauticat 385. Designed as one of Nauticat’s range of pilothouse cruising yachts, as opposed to their full motorsailer variants, OUMKA boasts surprising sailing performance, while still retaining the security and all-weathers practicality of a pilot saloon.
With approx. Euro 150,000 in factory-fitted options, OUMKA’s original list price was in excess of Euro 500,000. Certainly one the best equipped examples we have ever seen OUMKA has been configured for effortless short-handed cruising and liveaboard sailing in both warm and cold climates and benefits from a custom interior layout. Her specification highlights are many and include:-
** Note – named to be retained **
The main idea behind internal configuration is to have a boat for a couple to cruise in total comfort. Perhaps, with occasional guests. The choice of configuration, therefore, was deliberate to create a feeling inside the boat of a much larger yacht. Yet, the boat to be compact enough to fit into any marina.
Internally, OUMKA has a custom interior layout, with walk-in wardrobe-cum-storage room in lieu of an aft heads and an owner’s cabin bunk with transverse orientation (goes under the cockpit) that is truly huge – 2.10 x 2.00 m.! Sleeping is easy and very comfortable indeed!
Home to home comforts. Dishwasher, washing machine, freshwater toilet flushing (to avoid the smell), separate shower stall, and of course, watermaker to have enough water. Here, I have to say, with full water tanks a couple can cruise for about a week without resorting to watermaker. There is enough water for everything, including daily showers.
The boat is configured for an easy cruising. For instance, the RIB arrangement. There are fixing points on deck to store deflated and rolled up dinghy just forward of the mast and an electric pump with reversed cycle to inflate and deflate it. It takes about 5 min to deploy the dinghy. A very neat and practical arrangement.
Encouraged by the success created by the Nauticat 37, the new 385 was introduced in 2005. The Nauticat 385 replaced the legendary Nauticat 39. Our mission, which was not simple, was to create a new yacht, that would be in every detail superior to the Nauticat 39. Kaj , Patrik and our skilful workforce managed to design a yacht that in every aspect will satisfy even the most demanding sailor.
“This is a yacht for the discerning offshore cruising sailor who is happy to sacrifice ‘seat of the pants’ performance for security and seaworthiness. Steadfast and seaworthy, the Nauticat 385 will take you almost anywhere in absolute comfort – safe in the knowledge that she was hand built to exacting standards in a yard that has produced nothing but top class ocean going yachts during its 50-year lifetime.”
“Although considerably nippier and more agile than the earlier, more traditionally built Nauticat motorsailers, the 385 is still a relatively heavy displacement craft and behaves as such…. She’s a sound thoroughbred, a steadfast mile-muncher that will see you through adverse weather conditions, but still put on a bit of a spring when encouraged…”
“…Her hydraulic steering is precise and effortless, but with enough feedback to ‘feel’ what is going on and she tacks precisely without hesitation.”
“Her deep keel and rudder, together with her relatively deep body keeps her on track, pretty much regardless…”
“The powerful Yanmar diesel is amazingly quiet, thanks to a double floor and well insulated compartment. We were purring along at 6.4kn cruising speed with rev counter showing just 1,800rpm. Another 400rom took us to hull speed, 7.8kn, with no more noise…”
Sailing Today review of OUMKA – January 2012
The Nauticat 385 is a pilothouse cruiser that boats sturdy construction, a good-size sailplan, gorgeous joinery, and a cruising range under power of approximately 500 miles. With its full interior helm station, teak railings instead of wire lifelines, and considerable fuel tankage, you may be thinking "motorsailer," but not so fast. It appears to have the sail area and hull form that could respond well to a breeze, even with the motor turned off.
