Owner's Comments

"Our brief was to build a Fast, Comfortable and Safe world cruiser for a couple to handle without a crew, we wanted sail storage, tender and toy storage all below deck. Katherine was our fourth X-Yacht and second new build from the yard, and we invested a full year in the design process and another year in the build to ensure all aspects of this yacht were right for us. We have now sailed thousands of miles shorthanded from tropical to arctic conditions all safe and comfortable and at cruising speeds most only dream about, for us she truly is a fast apartment."
