BioTrek is light weight, powerful and is one of the fastest production 5X’s built! It is an owner’s version with three cabins and two heads built for the original owners who just completed a circumnavigation (with an additional captain’s cabin). This catamaran has been meticulously maintained and is blue water ready. BioTrek is built with carbon fiber throughout: mast, pulpit, crossbar, bimini, cabin superstructure, steering wheels, daggerboards, and deep racing rudders. There are two helm stations, two electronic engine controls controlling two super-efficient 80HP Yanmar engines, with B&G displays at each helm.

The owner has customized the boat for easy single-handed sailing. BioTrek has two autopilots to provide redundancy and safety. Most of the sheets, rolling lines and ropes were replaced in 2024. Facnor titanium continuous rollers are used for all three head sails.

BioTrek is ideal for a cruising couple, it is autonomous and ready for world cruising with both American and European electrical power. It has a state-of-the-art 23.4 kWh house battery that is Lloyds and DNV-GL certified (MG LFP 912Ah @ 25.6Vdc), this battery bank only weighs 162 kgs. It is supplied by a 1.6-kW solar array, a 10000I low speed Fisher Panda Inverter generator weighing only 111 kg and two 180A 28Vdc high output alternators that are CANBUS controlled by the house battery’s BMS. This boat is equipped with BOSCH induction and Bosch Inverter/convection oven, a LG 5kg high efficiency direct drive washer/dryer machine, it has no propane on board.

The port hull is the owner’s cabin, modified to accommodate a computer desk in addition to the king-size bed, wardrobes, bathroom and shower room. A sliding door separates the owner hull from the salon giving complete privacy.

The starboard hull has one cabin with a king bed, and the forward cabin has a desk/workshop that converts into a cabin with a queen bed. There is a crew cabin layout in the forward starboard locker built to accommodate grandchildren or crew.

BioTrek is ready for a new owner who might want to join the 2024 Grande Large Yachting (GLY) North Atlantic Rally or the 2025 GLY World Odyssey, around the world rally exclusively offered to owners of Outremer catamarans.
