Built in Essex, England in 1938, of select Burmese teak, English oak and bronze, Catania was designed in the nautical style of the day... long and lean. Exceptional English shipwrights constructed her with awesome attention to detail. Details such as dovetail joints and hand lathed bronze screws that you do not see in modern boats. She is uniquely one of a kind and is a "Yacht" in the truest sense of the word. She is graceful, elegant and swift, and her extraordinary lines belie her length of 40 feet. In 2010 Catania began a complete overhaul under the watchful eye of Ocean Petersen. With her restoration complete, she is ready to sail on a moments notice. As stunning as ever, with nostalgic lines, beautiful teak cockpit and accents, Catania is the definition of classic elegance. Anchored in the clear waters of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, she is available to charter for up to six guests. Treat yourself to an unforgettable sail aboard the Classic Wooden Yacht Catania.
