S/V “BILLY K” is an owner version 2001 Catana 401. After reviewing her extensive inventory and updates, you will see she is a turn-key liveaboard performance catamaran, sporting North hydranet main sail, 3DI genoa, North NPC Radian G0, and a symmetrical spinnaker.

The Catana 401 was introduced in 2000 and replaced the Catana 381 and 411 models. Sail Magazine named the Catana 401 as their Sail Top 10 in 2001. Design features include asymmetrical hulls, tulip shaped bows, dagger boards and extremely high bridge deck clearance for her length. Like all of Catana’s current models, the Catana 401’s innovations include total mainsail management from the safety of the cockpit via a two-speed electric winch, wide clean flat decks with all sail control lines lead aft under the deck and no hatches to trip over. Catana’s “ocean view” port lights provide excellent ventilation while at anchor.

BILLY K has been maintained and upgraded continually by her current owner. He has kept up the history of great performance and maintenance, providing the next owners with a true performance and comfortable cruising catamaran. She’s a rare privately owned yacht with no charter history.
