Croatian yard launches cruise-yacht


Brodosplit, the largest shipyard in Croatia, has launched its second new build: the 197-foot (60m) M/Y Katina, which debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show. The cruise-yacht built in steel and aluminum has four decks, with the top-three fully dedicated to guests. It includes a hospital and every cabin has its own terrace. It has no external side decks and no master suite. Embarkation is amidships. An elevator leads guests to a gym with sauna and shower, a whiskey bar/cigar room with fireplace and independent ventilation, a large day bathroom, and a fully equipped hospital room.

The interior was designed by Turkish designer Ali Getz. Ten crew cabins can accommodate 13 crew. It also includes a four-story crew-only staircase. The galley and the main salon are connected with a dumbwaiter. It cruises as 12 knots, with top speeds of 14, for a range of 4,000nm. Brodosplit shipyard builds mostly cruise ships, ferries, passengers vessels and merchant ships powered on alternative fuel. In the past 70 years, it has delivered more than 350 ships.

Within the superyacht division, a third project is under way, a74m pleasure unit.
