We are always thrilled here at TMC when we get to list a coveted owner version Catana 431. These are just really special boats and have proven their mettle with many circumnavigations over the years. What is even nicer about them is they offer an excellent blend of performance underway as well as comfort at anchor.
We sold Kontiki to her current owner several years ago, and she has enjoyed sailing and living on her on the U.S. East Coast and in the Caribbean. Kontiki has been well cared for, constantly upgraded, and is equipped with the gear any serious voyager and liveaboarder could want.
Owner version Catana 431's are one of the most highly sought after catamarans that come to market because they are large enough and sea worthy enough to sail the world, but small enough to be handled easily by a sailing couple. They have dual daggerboards, high bridge deck clearance, and offer very spacious suites for comfortable living.
To learn all about Kontiki, please send us an email.

Based on the innovative and highly successful Catana 471 model, the Catana 431 design features include asymmetrical hulls, tulip shaped bows, daggerboards for improved windward performance, and extremely high bridgedeck clearance.
Like all of Catana's current models, the Catana 431's innovations include total mainsail management from the safety of the cockpit via a two speed electric winch, wide clean flat decks with all sail control lines lead aft under the deck with no lines or hatches to trip over. Catana?s ?ocean view? port lights provide excellent ventilation and incredible views.
KON TIKI is the owners' version with the entire starboard hull devoted as the owner's suite with a queen size berth aft, multiple wardrobe lockers midship, and a large head compartment forward with separate shower stall.
The port hull was customized by Catana to include an office in the aft cabin, a double berth stateroom forward, and a midship guest head compartment outboard with additional lockers inboard.
The galley faces aft along the entire cockpit bulkhead and includes a top loading 7 cu.ft. 12V fridge, front loading 3 cu.ft. 12V freezer, Force 10 propane stove w/oven, and double sinks with H/C pressure fresh water and a Seagull waterpurification system (filter).
The saloon has a large "U" shaped settee facing aft with a double leaf dinning table and a forward facing nav station with bench seat which provides excellent visibility for standing watch in inclement weather.
The interior is finished in a light maintenance free Bassam (teak) veneer over a closed cell foam core, new saloon upholstery in January '06, and maintenance free synthetic teak sole cored with closed cell foam.
