Catana is known for the luxury they provide in two
versions, the one and the two. While the ‘one’ version is
known around the world as the highest quality and safest catamaran afloat,
the ‘two’ version has extra luxuries built in such as:
Extra large scenic opening hatches for increased ventilation
Extra large water maker for long luxurious fresh water showers
Wifi connection inside vessel for your personal computer
Aft deck hot water shower to fresh water rinse after your salt water
Curved corners on every piece of interior cabinetry so we never
have a bumped toe
Air conditioning throughout the vessel with double systems in the
Highly varnished woodwork throughout the leather interior
Larger, more powerful turbo charged engines with extra large fuel
Large self feathering props for easy docking and quick passages
A ‘vacuflush’ toilet system so no odors ever escape
Double sound insulated and double muffled generator that sounds
like a whisper
An extra large master’s cabin comprising one complete hull
with a separate, and private en suite, washing machine, large bed,
full shower facilities, and even a computer work station
Satellite Internet connection (additional costs)
Iridium satellite phone
Twelve volt and 110 volt electrical distribution throughout with
220 volt available for charging cell phones etc.
Extra large battery bank for longer periods without generator use
Six large solar panels integrated into the Biminis cover
Sun protection covers from all angles
“Lazy boy” recliners built into the cockpit both port
Double screen DVD system
Extra large 30mm thick windows throughout the main cabin for a
full wrap around view
Large opening ports in each cabin for comfort and air flow
Our Catana 582 has three luxurious suites and an extra large bright
and sunny bridge deck with full wrap around full length windows. All
three guest cabins have a private entrance and are en suite (private
toilet, shower, and vanity).
The two engine rooms are double sound insulated from the rest of the
boat. The crew cabin is separated from main cabin through a private
hatch where they have a private bathroom. A fifth “sailor's”
cabin is situated forward that can be used to sleep a guide, or “extra”
The “owner's” cabin comprises one complete hull. A comfortable
queen size bed, large opening hatches, two air conditioning units, sit
down computer desk, DVD player, wrap around shelving, enclosed head,
separate shower, washing machine, and vanity with wrap around mirrors
all combine to make the Catana 582 one of the world’s
most comfortable charter boats.
A second cabin contains a large queen size bed with opening hatch facing
down toward the sea between the hulls providing an exquisite view of
the rushing water. Another large opening hatch sits in the side of the
hull, blowing cool fresh air down toward the computer station desk.
The enclosed head, shower, and air-conditioning complete the luxury
rarely seen aboard the water.
A third cabin contains two single beds or one queen (simply request
the configuration desired), a sit down computer table, large opening
ports, enclosed bathroom with shower, air-conditioning, and wrap around
shelving to keep your personal comforts close at hand.
Your privacy is our prime concern. Our crew has over 20 years working
aboard the worlds most exclusive mega yachts comprising an impressive
cliental list. They know how to be discreet and protect the guest’s
privacy. Feel free to relax in the freedom of knowing what “happens
aboard stays aboard.”
Here is a copy of our "Welcome Aboard!" pack. Please have
read to see some of the luxury we provide.
In an effort to make your trip more pleasant please take a moment to
review this list of onboard guidelines and recommendations.
Feasts - Three meals a day are served onboard, but
you might like to take advantage of some of the local Tongan feasts
served at some of the neighboring restaurants. These options can be
viewed in the black folder stored in the main salon. Please note the
resorts need to plan a day ahead so we’ll need to reserve the
Fishing - Mariah has a complete compliment of fishing
gear and is an excellent fishing platform. We tend to troll fishing
gear while moving between anchorages. If fishing or the blood from fish
disturbs you please let the crew know. We can also use the ships tender
to fish, or fish trips can be arranged off the vessel. Alternatively
we can use Mariah for a day of fishing if desired.
Exercise - Living aboard a boat can produce a sedentary
lifestyle. Mariah has a stair-stepper aboard or Allison is a certified
Yoga instructor. Morning Yoga has become a routine aboard and you are
welcome to join in.
Internet - In Vava 'u Internet is available through
WiFi and your laptop. It's possible to use the Vava’u hotspot
and purchase time online. The hotspot only works in Vava’u itself
and a few selected anchorages. Mariah also subscribes to the government
TCC Internet system that is fed through our Catana 582 catamaran through
WiFi that provides service at 164Kbs in all the eastern anchorages.
If you have Internet needs please let us know and we’ll arrange
a time for contact. Alternatively Mariah has an emergency Sat phone/Internet
connection for a fee of five USD per minute. Please note this is a very
slow connection and used for emergency contact only.
Smoking - Mariah is a non-smoking vessel, but if you
must smoke please use the downwind corner of the boat. Please ask a
crew member as we have gasoline and flammables stored on the aft deck.
Water - All water used on Mariah is from our own water-maker.
This means our water is pure, and disease free. We also provide bottled
water. Bottles can be re-filled through the water-maker saving plastic
and bottles in the trash. Feel free to sample both types of water for
your preferred taste.
Air-conditioning - Mariah has excellent ventilation
or air-conditioning. In order to run the air-conditioning the generator
must also be turned on causing a small amount of noise. Feel free to
ask for the air-con to be turned on or off to suit your comfort.
Windows - Each cabin has a series of opening windows.
During rain any open window will channel water directly into your cabin.
Please take care to close all windows during rain.
Dietary needs - Mariah comes complete with a personal
chef. Please mention any special dietary needs or requests. Also feel
free to take over for a meal if the mood suits you.
Gratuities - Crew gratuities are not included in the
charter fee. A 15% gratuity is customary, but more is gratefully appreciated
for exemplary service.
