Almost all yachts have their rear sitting area on the back, but the St. Katharine has it on the front and therefore has much privacy. Here you find a lovely lounge corner and dining area for 8 people. Also a big bbq to make a lovely meal for lunch or diner. To keep you out of the sun (if you want) there are 2 big parasols.

On the other deck there are sunbeds/loungers. Wind screens along the railing have been put on to make it very private so that you can enjoy and relax!

Left of the Marina, a 5-minutes walk, there is the cosy Beach Playa Forum. Here you can swim in the clear water and because of the slope, it is an ideal beach for children! Also there is a BBQ Restaurant La Barca d'Adria and on the beach the lounge Beach Club Mac Arena with often in the evenings a cosy atmosphere and music.

Next to Port Forum there are several areas for roller skating and skate boarden. Besides that Barcelona is easy to reach and to see by bike! Possible to take your own, but also to rent them - please ask for more information.

I organised the trip for my brothers, in laws and couple of friends, we are all in the 45-55 age category and really just enjoyed renting the whole boat to ourselves. We cooked on board, however, the owner at your request can make all meals if requested during your stay. Also instead of rambling around the city looking for a pub to, we just enjoyed sitting on the deck or inside when it got chilly to have a few drinks and not to have to shout over loud music or trawl through busy pubs/clubs. The owner, Cas, made us feel welcome onboard!

Dear Tony & family,

First of all thank you very much for your very kind review! It was a pleasure to have you all on board!
We just want to make a small comment about the check-in and check-out time you mentionned. Probably not good enough communicated to you, but check-in time is from 16.00 hrs, not at 16.00 hrs and guests can check-in till 23.30 hours (or another hour if agreed beforehand). Of course if you arrive earlier, it is always possible to park your car and stall your luggage (for free) so that you can go for a lunch or do already some sightseeing. Like wise, check-out is from 7.30 till 10.00 hours.
Anyway, looking forward to welcoming you again on the St. Katharine in the future!
Kind regards
Cas & Irene

"I went to Barcelona on business, ended up being one of my best holidays"

When a business stay becomes a holiday, you know you are staying in somewhere truly special.
I am so glad I do not talk in my sleep or my girlfriend would worry who is Katherine that I am now in love with.
Katherine is an immaculate boat moored just outside Barcelona ( close enough to walk in flip flops ! ... I did or 10 euros in a taxi)
A boat with history, style and a sneak of romance.
What sets Katherine apart is the welcome and hospitality I received. To be made to feel that welcome many 5 star hotels should take a lesson from Cas.
Breakfast was my favourite treat sat on the top deck with gorgeous bread and my favourite coffee.
When travelling on your own, for work, dinner can sometimes be a chore but with Cas a pleasure, the right balance between service and inclusion.
With reliable Internet my stay was great for business , but I made 2 great friends in Barcelona , Cas , a great host and Katherine who after 3 nights together I can't wait to wake up again with her.

"Great Hospitality"

Cas, the proprietor, is what sets this place apart. He couldn't do enough for us. boat was in great condition and the location offered good access to the centre of the city.

"Great Birthday Party with a twist!,,"

Just spent the last few days on the St Katherine and what a great time it was. We were a party of eight and hired the whole boat for a special birthday. Cas and Irene are absolutely fantastic and have certainly got a jewel in the crown here. Nothing is too much for Cas, he goes the extra mile to ensure you have a fantastic time, I sense he would have let me have the shirt off his back had I asked him. All of the facilities on board are great - we used the top deck for breakfast and had a BBQ for the evening meal of the party (each to their own). I would certainly return again if I can get a booking as the boat is pretty much booked up well in advance.
If you want a different type of break then look no further than the St Katherine.
Thank you Cas and Irene for such a memorable experience.
