Own a Catana 44 for a quick get away price.

1996 Catana 44 ‘Trio’


Trio is a 1996 Catana 44, she cruised the South Pacific for the 2019 season and is ready to go again. Be quick to own a pedigree ocean passage maker at an affordable price.

As a current liveaboard Trio has provided the owners with a comfortable home combined with the thrill and safety of performance sailing with island cruising comforts. Her condition can be described as original and comfortably used and therefore she does not claim the pristine aesthetics of a show boat nor their price tag.

She is however a sturdy and capable cat well set up for her next season in Fiji. Compared to any other cat on the market ‘Trio’ is the perfect opportunity to enjoy sailing oceans or coasts on a performance brand yacht at a price that leaves plenty of cash in your cruising kitty.
