Hargrave motor yacht Catera sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 30.7 metre motor yacht Catera, listed for sale by Carmine and Michael Galati at Galati Yacht Sales, has been sold with Alliance Marine introducing the buyer.
Built in GRP by Hargrave with delivery in 2010, she received a complete interior refit in 2013 by A La Mer. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a main-deck master suite with a king size bed, a full-beam VIP suite, again with a king size bed, and two twins convertible to queen size doubles. All cabins have entertainment systems including flatscreen televisions and all have full en-suite bathroom facilities.
The main saloon features cherry gloss and camphor burl wood joinery and is designed with contemporary angled cabinetry that provides an abundance of counter space and storage. These 45 degree angles are mirrored in the main saloon and dining ceiling soffits. Inside the soffits is a band of beveled mirrors that give the illusion of a much higher ceiling. The overall mood is clean, modern and very comfortable. There is cherry gloss crown moulding throughout the main saloon with the air conditioning system streamlined throughout, hidden using the crown moulding. The port aft corner houses a 50-inch Sharp television and an audio/visual system including Blu-Ray DVD and a Marantz surround sound system.
The flybridge features a huge horseshoe seating area on the port side and the bar with its teak edged light marble top and seating for four gives plenty of open space for cocktails and al fresco dining and there are sun pads for relaxing next to the Jacuzzi. There are two teak cocktail tables with sun dial inlays and cross grained patterns in front of the horseshoe seating area and a large gas grill is located to port, aft of the sun pads.
Twin Caterpillar 1,675hp engines power her to a cruising speed of 15 knots and both have Caterpillar Platinum Plus extended service coverage until May 2018.
Catera was asking $4,300,000.
