Katsu – Reichel Pugh 45

Katsu is a RP 45 that in 2011 was named Sailing World’s ‘Boat Of The Year’ and has all it takes to win a regatta.

This winter Katsu is having a refit at Berthon in Lymington, before heading to the Mediterranean. This refit includes a hull respray and new kiwi grip deck.

This boat offers a great opportunity to any team that are looking to charter a Grand Prix racing yacht in the Mediterranean this summer or the Caribbean next winter.
