M/Y CATALANA was designed specifically with safety as a priority. While she still has the sleek and stylish feel of a Sunseeker and is capable of speeds up to 30 knots, this flybridge motor yacht has many safety features discretely added throughout, guaranteeing peace of mind at all times. Built in 2007 and comprehensively refitted in 2018, CATALANA is a modern yacht for charter, well suited to groups of any age to cruise around the Bahamas in style.
