Led by Captain Ferdi and operated by a crew of 12, the 38-metre Katharina sits low in the water, making her a beautiful looking boat. Built in 1995 in Kalimantan, her slim hull was originally planned for use as a commercial freighter. After her 2014 interior refit, her transformation is a conservation exercise back to authenticity of a mighty seafaring tradition. Not only is the Katharina very elegant on the water, she is also fast becoming a classic yacht, as very few of these original designs remain. Accommodating just 12 guests in six cabins, with a salon & bar, two sun decks, and an outdoor dining area, she offers a more intimate experience.
