Kallima was the very first Catana 47 built in 2014 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the creation of the Catana shipyard.   She was designed by the naval architect, Christophe Barreau.  She has a French flag.

Construction includes carbon infusion, with Airex closed cell foam sandwich and carbon reinforcement.  Beneath the waterline the hull has been reinforced with Twaron and there is protection against osmosis with the use of Vinylester resin.  The bulkheads, the deck and the binimi have been reinforced with carbon fibre in order to gain more rigidity and increased performance on the wind and at speed.

The interior has been designed for comfort and long-term cruising.   

Kallima is an exceptional long distance sailing catamaran combining elegance, performance and seaworthiness.   This has been demonstrated by the first owners who cruised the Pacific Ocean from north to south for 5 years and sailing some 30,000nm.   More recently with her current owners through French Polynesia, Islands of Fiji and New Zealand. 

She is currently lying in the Bay of Islands, North Island, New Zealand and is fully equipped for a circumnavigation and absolutely ready to sail across the Pacific Ocean at a moment's notice. Her owners, a family from the UK and Germany, have devoted weeks since they arrived in Opua, to make her ready for your arrival. We are honoured to bring Kallima to market. She is a credit to the Catana yard but very much so to her owners, who should be truly proud of her stunning presentation.

Kallima has had two owners.  The first, Serge and Brigitte Megret, a retired French couple with decades of sailing experience and the second, Nick Moriarty, his wife Tanja and two children Marcus and Lara.

Please read on for the full description and watch our full video tour to discover this superb ship in details. We also have videos of Kallima on the hard just last month (February 2023), just before she was re-splashed after a thorough 'spa'.

For a bit of info about Nautilus Yacht Management, we are a boutique-style brokerage devoted to high quality cruising yachts and to the cruising community since our launch in Sydney in 2011. 

With several offshore branches from French Polynesia to Fiji, New Zealand and Australia to assist cruisers along South Pacific route, we are here to help both sellers and buyers with the logistics involved from registration to insurance, delivery, import, survey, storage and crewing if required. Ex- cruisers ourselves we just strive to help others begin their journey on the ocean.

Our team can organize a private video viewing, discuss the purchase process with you as well as have all the time in the world to answer your questions, put you in touch with the owners if you wish, assist with organising your visit, purchase, delivery home if needed, insurance, berthing, crewing, etc. 

A Word From The Owner:

"With more than thirty years mono-hull sailing experience, I wanted a vessel for ocean cruising that would perform well under sail, be comfortable as a home, safe under sail and look good.   I realised that the majority of our time would be spent at anchor in the tropics and that the less time I needed to be at sea with a family (unaccustomed to sailing) the better, so speed was important too.  

A catamaran seemed the obvious choice of vessel, but I could not entertain a floating caravan, nor a twitchy thoroughbred.  I was aware of the Catana brand that achieved an impressive compromise between comfort and performance but I had little experience of sailing catamarans, and no time spent on a Catana.   Fortunately, the opportunity came for an older son of mine, Harry (a sailing instructor), to crew on Catana 47 around the Atlantic and this provided the perfect opportunity to get first-hand information on the pros and cons of the design.   His 13,000nm trip started and finished in Scotland and included visiting the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, numerous Caribbean islands, Bermuda and the Azores.   Inevitably such a passage meant encountering all types of weather, sea states, trials and tribulations.  He had nothing but praise for the design and it was with this endorsement that I began the search for a suitable vessel.   The demand for the Catana 47 is significant and so this proved to be more difficult than I had envisaged; however, I eventually heard about Kallima.   She was the right age and in the right ocean.

My initial focus was on the owners.  I was relieved to discover how competent and experienced they were and how much they genuinely loved Kallima.   This was evident by the tearful hand-over in French Polynesia.

Our purchase of Kallima coincided with the outbreak of Covid 19; however, we tried not to allow the global pandemic to unduly influence our plans.  We took advantage of any travel restrictions to make as many improvements to Kallima as we could and we ensured she was kept in tip-top condition.   

At least one lock-down was spent in Bora Bora which was wonderful.  Indeed, through good fortune, we were able to make the very best of the Covid months although it did mean that we were compelled to spend two seasons in French Polynesia and not one as we had originally intended. This was no trial and the endless above water and under water activities that we love doing meant every day was special.  French Polynesia is so extensive that a lifetime there would not be too long.   However, we had a three-year plan, and this needed to be amended to suit the reality of global travel and Covid.

As soon as travel restrictions eased, we set off for Fiji and only wish we could have spent another two years there.   The Fijian hospitality, coral and the underwater life were outstanding.   

We remained in Fiji for as long as we could before heading south to New Zealand and it is here in the Bay of Islands, North Island, that our journey must end.   After home educating our children for the last 10 years Lara is now 12 and is ready for school.   Hopefully, when the children have ‘flown the nest’, we will embark on our next sailing adventure.

Kallima truly exceeded our expectations in terms of how she performs under sail, the space (above and below deck) that she affords, comfort, reliability and ease of handling.  I remain convinced that there is no better compromise for long distance ocean cruising than a catamaran and a Catana is in a class of its own.   Kallima was well loved by her first owners; however, we have made many significant improvements over the last three years and we leave her in very good condition. She is waiting to take her next owners to far off destinations in safety and comfort.   We shall miss her greatly." Nick and Tanja, Opua, March 2023.
