The St. Katharine is a former Fleet Tender from the Royal Navy (ex. Denmead A363) and served from 1969 till 1996.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on board of our luxury motor yacht St. Katharine in Barcelona!

Perfect place to combine a city and beach holiday

We stayed here for 6 days, wanting to combine both beach and citylife. We were 2 adults and 5 children (7- 13 years old). The boat was a perfect accommodation for us. The boat: Well equipped, well set up with drinks and food in fridge at arrival, and additional stocks to refill, at very reasonable prices. Excellent, and very convenient. The rooms was clean, and comfortable. The large sun deck was very much enjoyed, also having barbecue lunches and dinner. Local area: Nice and quiet. (on friday and saturday it was a rock concert close by, could be heard outside, but not much inside the boat. The beach is only 5 minutes away, with very few people, so a nice place to spend the first half of the day. A small bar has some drinks / simple food. The short distance from the boat, made it possible for the children to return by themselves, when they had enough. The closest supermarket / metro / bakery is 15 minutes walk away (1,3 km), but not far when you get used to it. Bakery open every day, and we enjoyed fresh bakery every morning on the sun deck. Few possible improvements (minors): - 1 bicycle for the person running the morning bakery errand :-) - air condition timing could be prolonged (?), could get a bit warm some nights Overall we were very happy to stay there, enjoyed our time alot, and Cas was a very hospitable and service minded host. We will absolutely consider to stay here again if/when we return to Barcelona

Amazing place - will be booking again!

Having already been to Barcelona before we already knew what to expect from the area, the port itself was well located for our purposes and we ended up hardly leaving as the boat was so comfortable and well equipped. Before even arriving Cas was flexible, accommodating and efficient in responding to any queries. Once we found our was to the boat we sat down to an AMAZING tapas meal. Pre-ordering this was the best possible start to our trip - lovely food and plentiful drinks on the decks without any of the stress of deciding where to go. Cas was attentive throughout the stay, dealing with everything from bringing us an additional corkscrew to providing mosquito repellants! The kitchen was well stocked with equipment to make any meals. The deck area has a huge comfortable sofa and with the dining table as well we were about to have guests over for meals and it became our own social hub with the choas of the Sonar music festival going on around the city. We will definitely be re-booking, hopefully for the same time next year! Thanks so much to Cas & Irene!

Boat and service fully met our expectations!

A boat instead of an apartment! We were looking for an apartment for a shortbreak in Barcelona and suddenly I saw this beautifull boat! Looked so good! Besides that, this boat had the same name as my girlfiend ... a coincidence?? We would not know what we would miss if we would not book this top boat!! So we had to go and experience it! Result? It's a great place to stay and ..to sleep! So cosy those cabins with own bathrooms in the belly of this big ship. Every morning, we had breakfast on the sundeck in Januari (!), between al those superyachts, you feel like a rich man to may experience this! The galley is fully equipped and the fridge is filled with drinks and food with normal prices, such a great idea! We did not even think of going to the supermarket! In the harbour is a very good restaurant (Restaurant Port Nautic) and a short walk brings you to the metro. Then.. only 4 stops and you are walking on the Ramblas in the center of Barcelona! The 3 days on the St.Katharine were a realy very positive experience for us. The boat and the service from the owners met fully our expectations. We are coming back to the St. Katharine for sure to enjoy again this fantastic boat in Port Forum - Barcelona. We hope loads of others will do the same, because Cas & Irene and the St. Katharine deserve it and we wish them every guest of the world!

Great place to stay, we will be back this summer!

Hi Cas & Irene, we had a great time onboard of the St. Katharine. First you gave us a warm welcome and an useful (and very interesting) tour through the boat. We were very surprised about the spacious cabins, beautiful bathrooms and large sundecks, fantastic! Next to that the children playroom with the playground and DVD (with children movies) is a very good idea. Our little Sara was very happy there! Also the food & drink service, which is present on the boat when you arrive (even candies for the kids!) is really a great! We didn’t have to go shopping after our arrival and could start directly enjoying life on the boat! The boat is in an excellent condition, everything you need is aboard (like 150 movies!) and it is very well maintained and very clean. We will be back this summer! It is a great place to stay for a family for a very reasonable price!

We had a great time in Barcelona!

It was just a good choice to book on the St. Katharine. It is probably not as luxurious as other yachts in that marina, but it had a 'homey' atmosphere, just what we wanted. The winter chill was absolutely not on board, due to a well functioning central heating system. We felt absolutely safe for ourselves as well as for our belongings, with an excellent function security system. Our host and owner of the St. Katharine did everything in his power to make our stay a memorable one and succeeded. I'll be back...

Floating apartment

Floating apartment If you go with more people on vacation, this is much nicer than a hotel or just an apartment. Everyone has his pricacy, but you're still together. The atmosphere on a port is friendlier than an apartment in a street and there are plenty of places on the boat to stay in the sun. Everything is on board from dishwasher to central heating or air conditioning. The owners told us that, on one of the decks, a lounge sofa and a large umbrella will be placed. We have a great time and the owners who have welcomed us to explain how everything works, and they were also there when we left, they were quite friendly and also made a map with information.
