Katmai is truly magnificent. You would be forgiven for thinking she is a Swan, such is the quality of construction and attention to detail. Built by Beneteau at their exclusive Chantiers facility and designed by the legendary German Frers as a limited edition ocean racer/cruiser this collaboration resulted in a very special boat. The owners are both very talented and fastidious engineers and this shows in both the meticulous maintenance and the top quality, carefully thought out systems on board. She has been constantly upgraded and improved and is arguably as good, or if not better, than new.
Katmai is a fast and powerful blue water thoroughbred but such is her equipment and set up she is still easily handled by a competent crew of two. With comfortable accomodation for 6, be it 3 couples or individuals, she offers the opportunity to sail anywhere in the world in absolute safety and style.
Katmai features Airex cored construction above the w/l, solid GRP below the w/l, fully bonded bulkheads, 4 spreader mast, rod rigging and complete hydraulic rig adjustment.
At this price Katmai is very good value. It is also not often, that boats as exceptional as this, are offered for sale.
