Welcome aboard Catsy, a 62ft luxury charter catamaran designed and built in 2008 by Sunreef in Gdansk. Catsy is a study in modern naval architecture, combining the necessities of both guest comforts and quality sailing. Comfortable for up to 8 guests, the yacht's guests accommodations include to aft Queen berth guest suites, and two comfortable double berth guest suites forward.
The catamaran is of course fully air-conditioned throughout, and amenities include satellite TV in the saloon, and a 270 degree view of the blue Caribbean from inside! Of note is Catsy's large, shaded flybridge lounging area and helm station - it's a particular favorite with charter guests, as this design combines some of the more popular aspects of power yachts with the thrill of sailing. The main bridge deck features the saloon, galley and the interior lounging areas, and the covered aft lounging cockpit, where guests can enjoy sumptuous alfresco dining opportunities the tropical Caribbean climate provides.
One of Catsy's outstanding features is her amazing amount of usable exterior guest space, from the cockpit aft to the trampolines forward, with the flybridge lounge to all the interior cabins, much has been contained in her 62 feet of length.
The catamaran's features extend beyond architecture - she is fully laden with modern water sports equipment and a large rigid inflatable tender with a sturdy 70 horsepower outboard engine. This keeps Catsy's guests active with waterskiing, the towing-tube, wakeboarding and kneeboarding, though she also has a full complement of non-motorized activities, including kayaking, snorkeling and two new stand-up paddleboards.
All of these activities are at a mere arm's length away, just step down to the sea via the convenient stair-step swim platforms on the stern of either hull.
The entire Caribbean sailing charter package includes her award-winning captain and chef, professional charter crew that seek to accommodate the guests' every need, while maintaining a safe and eco-friendly environment aboard.

Jim and Amanda are a great crew, I can't even imagine what else they could have done to make our vacation more enjoyable. By the end of the week they were like family. We had 4 kids on the trip with us, and one of them was even crying when we said good bye to them.
The Catsy Catamaran is very well maintained inside and out. The beds and pillows were comfortable, and the rooms were cool at night so sleep came easy.
The wives on the trip continued to comment on how wonderful it was that no decisions had to be made, everything was done, and everything was fantastic. Even the kids who are picky eaters explored the new foods presented, and often found they liked them. If they didn't like the fancy food, an alternative dish was always ready. Amanda is an amazing cook.
Jim sat down with me the moment we arrived and he and I decided on the key things we wanted to see. After that, Jim would make recommendation on points of interest we could fit in, while still making sure we hit all of our must haves. All of his suggested areas were top notch, and much appreciated. He knows the islands, and after getting to know us, knew what we would want to do before we did.
John at Sailing Directions was responsive and helpful in selecting the boat we finally decided on (Catsy). He was attentive to the details and kept checking in to make sure everything was ok all during the time from when we first booked the trip until the time we departed. Chartered and crewed boats can be expensive, but they are worth every penny.
