Katanne For Sale
Entering Admiralty Bay, Bequia, Caribbean

£119,950 (VAT paid))

Please contact me at tomsampson(at)live.co.uk if you require more information about Katanne or wish me to contact you.

 After our circumnavigation we based ourselves in Lagos, Portugal for a couple of years and during that ime we carried out an extensive refurbishment. She now has a new Eno cooker and new galley top surfaces together with new carpets throughout. The mainsail was bought in 2013 and the genoa, although the original has been little used.Instead we replaced the 150 in 2010 which has been, together with the spinnaker, the foresails used most often.

Stratton Marine Brokerage are the selling agents and the boat is now at Wicor Marine.

Katanne has served us so well. She is built for comfort, not speed (that said we averaged well over 5kts crossing the Pacific). Nicolette claims never to have got wet, from the sea, during the 10 years she has been on board. In bad weather you can rely on her to keep you safe.

A careful study of the specifications will be worthwhile as will a visit to her. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
