The Traditional S/Y Katariina Boat
The traditional S/Y Katariina provides cruises and events for celebrations, meetings and other events.
There is a traditionally decorated sailors mess which is perfect for private dinners and evening parties. A wood-heated fireplace in the mess creates cozy atmosphere for relaxation. You might even be accompanied by a troubadour playing his guitar.
For meetings and educational events the boat can offer appropriate AV-equipment. During the cruise there are some snack served from the boats´s own kitchen. Caterer provides lunch and dinner menus for the charter cruises.
Since S/Y Katariina is a Finnish boat it also has a sauna below the deck. Take a dive into the Bothnian Bay and relax & warm up in the boat's own sauna where 4 person can bath at the same time. Afterwards you can cool off with a cold beer or enjoy a hot drink.
Because of the low drought of the boat, also the shallow beaches can be visited quite easily.
The boat's capacity for the cruises is 12 persons. While staying in the harbor as a cafe the boat accommodates 30 persons.
