Steal this boat! Speczacular - 58' Cayman 2005

Speczacular needs a new loving owner to care and cruise her. Her current owner is ready for a new boat.

The Cayman Yachts brand name was established in 1990, within the Mochi Craft Company, as the brainchild of Luigi Prosperi who was at that time Mochi Craft Chairman. In 1996, after having left the Mochi Craft Company, Prosperi formed the Cayman brand in La Spezia, Italy. He built his headquarters and a new shipyard with the support of his son, Paolo, a naval engineer, using the Cayman brand to kick-start the new company. Cayman is now well known in Europe. Luigi and Paolo continue to build Cayman Yachts from 42 feet to 75 feet.

With low hours Speczacular has had light use and great care. She has three staterooms all with en-suite heads with showers. Stepping into her finely finished matched grain pear wood cabin you can still smell the beautiful leather sofa like the day she was built. Hidden in the saloon is a full galley with fridge, cook top, microwave and double sink.

Her air-conditioned enclosed wheel house has an opening hard top, a large comfortable dinette and mini galley.
