Catana is widely acclaimed for building spectacular, blue water cats that marry sailing performance and luxury like no other brand. Catana 65 LIBECCIO raises the bar further still.

LIBECCIO’s second owners purchased her directly from the Catana factory in France in her original layout and configuration and sailed her for three years all over the Mediterranean. This cruising couple made the wise decision to store the yacht in Canet, at the Catana yard, each winter. There, they upgraded the yacht using only yard staff and contractors. This culminated in a transformative refit in 2017 that radically enhanced the aesthetic, comfort and functionality of this yacht. The starboard owner’s hull was modified to create a true master cabin with walk-in closet in place of the original bathroom. A very large bathroom with walk-in shower was created in place of the original forward starboard cabin – consider the space this affords. The floors were replaced with a light teak-holly to enhance natural light. The engines, generator, standing rigging, dinghy and outboard were all replaced with new. Today, there is not a more elegant, ergonomically sound or faster Catana 65 on the oceans.

Scroll through the photos attached, you will impressed with her sheer line, her towering mast, her high bridge-deck clearance which hint at her sailing performance. Her interior is all about light and contemporary lines. Real wood veneer finishes, brushed aluminum trims, Corian and leather all lend to an authentic feel of refinement that is seldom found on cats anymore.

LIBECCIO sports a spectacular LORIMA carbon mast with textile rigging and is the only Catana 65 to have the forward “cross” – consisting of longeron/bowsprit (compression post), crossbeam and gull striker – in carbon fiber to substantially reduce weight in the bows. A full suite of sails including 140 sq meter Spectra mainsail, self-tacking Spectra solent, large genoa/screecher, and assymetric spinnaker coupled to 6 electric winches facilitate short-handed maneuvering and provide sail plans for all windspeed ranges and angles.

The current owner purchased LIBECCIO in Canet from his overachieving predecessor in 2019 and continued his work in the same spirit. The fuel tanks were moved aft from the mast-foot lockers to the cockpit lockers to further reduce weight forward and improve sailing performance in light airs. With long passages on the agenda, the new owner also fitted a crew cabin in the port forepeak complete with AC to accommodate extra crew. The yacht can sleep up to 9 passengers in 4 double cabins + crew cabin! LIBECCIO completed the ARC 2019, transited Panama and sailed on to the Galapagos, Marquesas and Hawaii where she has been for the last three years. She has always had a full time skipper aboard under the current ownership.

LIBECCIO is turn key and offers a rare opportunity for a couple or family to sail southwest through the Pacific. Or why not explore the Northwestern US, Canada and Alaska this summer on this unusually well outfitted and sea-kindly platform. The Catana 65 is equipped with straight propeller shafts fitted through skegs. No sail-drives on this cat! Stray logs, containers or marine mammals will never be a hazard. Go long, go far!

Alexis grew up racing dinghies in the waters of Brittany, France. He immigrated to the United States as a young man and developed his interest in offshore cruising and racing in New England and the Bahamas. Alexis began his professional yachting career as a charter captain sailing the storied seas of French Polynesia on a Fountaine-Pajot Marquises 56 catamaran. There he developed a talent for sharing and communicating his love for bluewater sailing to his worldly guests. More recently, Alexis spent ten years managing Nautor’s Swan Charters, a high-end charter company with over fifty Swans based in the Caribbean, New England and the Mediterranean. While at Nautor’s Swan, Alexis coordinated sales of new yachts through the French defiscalisation program. He later instituted a successful yacht sales and management program to develop the fleet in non-French territories. This experience gave him substantial experience in the many facets of yacht sales and brokerage in the United States, Europe and the Caribbean. Alexis is bilingual English-French. He was educated in the United States and has worked in the US, Europe and the Caribbean. He has sailed extensively on multihulls and particularly enjoys performance cats.
