Immaculate Blue water cruiser that can give a turn of speed due to it's racing pedigree. She was designed by German Frers and built in the CNB boatyard by Beneteau. This is no production boat, the build standard can be seen and felt as soon as you step aboard. Katmai was sailed from Alsaka to Perth Western Australia where over an 18 month period she underwent a no expense spared major refit. Even though she was originally built in 1987 after this refit she was all but a new boat in 2009. The attention to detail has to be seen to be fully appreciated! It's in first class condition and has had significant money spent over the last 5 months so there's absolutely nothing to do! She's totally ready for your next adventure!

The inventory of sails, equipment and spares is extraordinary! You would not find a better prepared boat for blue water cruising.

There's so much more to this boat it would take far too long to list. Call now and ask any questions or to organise an inspection. You'll see and feel the incredible quality of this yacht as soon as you step aboard!
