The ‘Katharos’ is clearly the little sister of the ‘Bestevaer 2’, the private yacht of designer Gerard Dykstra, but it truly stands out for its interior. The basic colours are off-white (matte combined with gloss) and black. This is combined with aubergine cushions, an aqua green oak floor, an illuminated horizontal strip through the entire cabin and streamlined, subtle stainless steel light fittings. The cabin is made light and spacious by the open connection between the wheelhouse and cabin on the starboard side. Light also enters through the two portholes and deck hatches. Her pilot house offers protection during rough weather or watch keeping, while down below there is a spacious salon area and U-shaped galley. The cabins and a wet cells complete the interior lay out. Headroom is 2.00m or more trough out.
Please note that as of May 2021 we will be updating the interior by changing the interior styling. Locker doors will be changed to a light oak fineer, the floor will be made light grey, the black nav table will be light oak and the high gloss painted areas will be repainted into a satin.
With the ‘Katharos’ KM Yachtbuilders has once again delivered an unpainted aluminium yacht. Eeuwe Kooi, shipyard owner: “We’d like to have the chance to show off another painted yacht, but our customers are increasingly opting for a plain hull. That’s a big compliment for our shipbuilders!” The deck features the same basic colours as the interior: a black stripe on the hull just under the freeboard, a black radar unit and a superb black carbon mast and jib. The wheelhouse and superstructure are white, and the deck is light grey. The mast is not only a pretty sight: it also contributes to the outstanding sailing properties of the ‘Katharos’. The ship has a length of just over 15 metres, but sails like a dinghy. Light on the helm, fast and manoeuvrable.
