Catbird is definitely a Caribbean boat. Large, comfortable cockpit with ample room for an island party, a cosy interior with lots of storage space, and a centralised galley from which meals and snacks can easily be served to either the interior saloon or up to the cockpit. The interior has been greatly enhanced, having gone through a total refit, the deck is well laid out and she is easy to handle with a cutter rig, and most lines can be controlled from the cockpit. Attention to detail is evident throughout including the hull which has been moulded to resemble a traditional Clinker hull. Catbird has been under the same ownership for 13 years and has benefited from a continual program of maintenance and upgrades. However, the owner has decided that its time to move on from his pride and joy and has reluctantly put the boat on the market.
