Tahiti, en route to New Zealand
Katta is a Catana 431 in owners’ version, beautifully prepared and equipped for blue water cruising. This is the boat for sailors who value fast cruising: carbon mast, lithium batteries, sails from 2017, engines 2017, generator 2018, electronics and electricity 2017, windlass and chain 2017 …. Katta was prepared for an extended cruise by her owners, a Norwegian couple who are experienced sailors.
The layout of the owner’s version is ideal: starboard owner’s hull with a large double cabin, equally big bathroom and study area. The port hull has a double cabin forward and the aft cabin can be a double or single, which has the advantage of offering 2 extra storage areas. The construction quality is clear to see, the woodwork is in excellent condition and the upholstery in Alcantara is new. The chart table is on the starboard side, equipped with plotter, instruments and autopilot, all of which are found at the helm station outside as well.
There are 2 helm stations, giving great visibility when sailing or manoeuvring the boat. There is the classic Catana central cockpit winch, centralising most of the sail handling. In total there are 8 winches of which 3 are electric. With gennaker, 2 spinnakers (one heavy weather) as well as new mainsail and genoa, this Catana 431 will perform well in any wind conditions.
The boat is a good fit for sailors looking for a performance catamaran that’s luxurious as well as very seaworthy, with new and nearly new equipment. Katta is currently in French Polynesia and will be in New Zealand at the end of 2019.
