(press release) Brodosplit, one of the biggest shipyard in Europe and the largest in Croatia, confirms the willing to enter the superyacht market with their second new build. The 60 meter cruise-superyacht Katina, custom built for her owner, is a four-deck displacing cruise-yacht vessel built in steel and aluminum.
- Katina is the second cruise yacht model built by Brodosplit, the biggest shipyard in Croatia
- Katina is a fully custom yacht, realized following her owner specific request
- Steel and aluminium, four decks, with the top-three fully dedicated to guests
- Plenty of spaces available on this 60-meter, including an hospital and a whisky room
- Every cabin has its own terrace
- Brodosplit already started building a 185-meter sailing yacht (more info will be available soon)
The designers gave Katina’s guest three decks entirely dedicated to their comfort, relaxation and enjoyment. Aboard several unusual surprises, specifically wanted by the owner, such as a whisky bar or a room set up as a hospital. Everything has been conceived and designed to offer owners and guests a long run cruise surrounded by the most comprehensive entertainment and luxury, without giving up any comfort.
With a length overall of 60 meters and a beam of 10.68 (draught is 3.10), Katina is a displacement vessel built in steel for hull and superstructure and aluminum for the superstructure.
The rational arrangement on four decks, with the top-three fully dedicated to guests, and the wide beam layout without external side decks, make of Katina one of the largest yachts in terms of inner space, compared to the external measures.
The interior design is by Turkish designer Ali Getz who, in accordance to the owner’s indications, went for a linear yet extremely elegant pattern of light and dark shades, using satin oak, gloss walnut, cream leather and most noble fabrics.
The main salon is a unique space, with large round relaxing area featuring a cocktail bar to port, two semi-circular couches and a hiding flat TV. Moving abow, the same pop-up TV is backed by a second, independent screen and partially separates the round dining table for 12 guests.
A full-beam hall placed amidships is the proper access on board, thanks to the two side gangways and watertight doors, in a cruise-ship style.
A center hallway leads to the elevator and to four rooms fully dedicated to guests: a gymnasium with sauna and shower, a whisky bar/cigar room with fireplace, armchairs, bottle cabinets and independent ventilation, a large day bathroom, and a fully equipped hospital room, with autonomous ventilation and power supply, hospital-like bed, private bathroom.
Through the elevator or the rounded staircase, guests reach the upper deck, where six suites feature private balcony and en-suite bathroom. The two fore ones are 50 square meters large, and share a front-facing balcony hidden to the view of other guests and crew. The four, identical mid ones measure 40 square meters and have their own folding balcony that hydraulically opens on the side of the vessel (two per side). Each of the six cabins feature double beds that slide open to split into twin beds, vanity corner, “office table” with chair, and bathroom with marble and wood finish and floor heating. The two suites to bow both sport shower and separate bathtub, while the other four have a double-sized shower cabinet.
A covered aft cockpit is a public outdoor area for better enjoying the sea.
The sun deck boasts a huge, teak covered deck. While the back part hosts several water toys, including a rescue boat, a 170HP tender rib, a jet ski and more, the center part is dedicated to a raised Jacuzzi for 6. A wide awning electrically opens and closes according to guests desires. Under the covered part of the deck a grill bar faces a cocktail bar to complete the amenities. A center hallway gets inside the bridge and features another day bathroom, while the fore part is fully dedicated to captain with private bathroom, separate office and the wide wheelhouse.
All the entertainment aboard can be controlled by tablet and smartphone devices, including heating, window shades, and lighting. A series of 30 RGB (red, green blue) underwater lights all around the yacht creates a spectacular effect while at port in the night.
The lower deck host the technical and service areas including, beside the engine bay, a technical room, a laundry, the galley (capable of serving three hot dishes to 50 guests at once), and 10 crew cabins for a 13 people crew. A four-story staircase, fully independent from guest spaces, allow crew to move on board undisturbed. The lower galley and the main salon are connected with a dumbwaiter.
