Northrop and Johnson sends word that the 150-foot Delta motoryacht Katya is moving from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, up to Newport, Rhode Island. In order to secure some en-route charters, the owner is dropping Katya‘s weekly base rate from $150,000 to $130,000.
Katya is a 2009 build that accommodates 10 to 12 guests. I got aboard Katya back in 2009, when she was brand-new and chartering as part of a different company’s fleet. She was built to be family-friendly as well as charter-friendly, and I have no reason to believe those programs have changed in the half-dozen years since.
The tenders and toys aboard Katya tell us there is some good family fun to be had aboard. She has a pair of jet tenders, wakeboards, towable toys, snorkeling gear and more. The yacht spends winters in Florida and the Bahamas, so she is outfitted to make the most of the beaches in even the most shallow-water areas.
Northrop and Johnson didn’t give timing details on the yacht’s pending move up north, except to say that it will happen “very soon.”
Any reputable charter broker can tell you more about Katya or help you book a week on board at the discounted rate while she moves from Florida to New England.
