Welcome to Katlyn Charters

Welcome to our website where we invite you to browse, imagine, contemplate and ultimately enquire about a sailing vacation aboard our 44 foot St. Francis catamaran, Katlyn. Our aim is to invite you aboard for a carefree taste of life exploring The British Virgin Islands...
Katlyn is a South African built catamaran with an established pedigree.  She has sailed over 70 000 nautical miles over a period of 15 years, proving that she is both a reliable ocean cruiser as well as a comfortable home. With a spacious cockpit, plenty of seating with stylish outdoor cushions, a swim platform, expansive trampoline for sunbathing, and plenty of awnings to provide shade, the exterior is attractive and user friendly.  Sliding doors lead from the cockpit into the saloon, where to starboard there is leather upholstered seating for 6 around a lovely bamboo topped dining table.  The expansive chart table and navigation station are to port, with stairs leading down into the port hull where the galley is nestled amidships.  Throughout, Katlyn is tastefully decorated in crisp white, subtle blues, and sandy beige finishes, creating a feeling of tranquillity and space, reflecting the crystal clear tropical waters and pristine beaches. A major refit in 2012 ensures that the yacht is contemporary and up to date in design.

Crew Profile

Luxury charter yacht crew for KATLYN
Captain: Doug Fairfield

To ease you into life at a slower pace are Doug and Val Fairfield, an English speaking, husband and wife globe-trotting team from South Africa, with many years combined cruising and charter experience. Together we have crossed the Indian and Atlantic Oceans twice, travelled by yacht many miles up the Amazon River, and explored remote archipelagos across the globe. During our voyages, we raised and home schooled our children aboard, and have enjoyed a life living beyond the limits and safety of the norm. Along the way we have developed an awareness, appreciation and respect for the ocean, the sky and the weather in all its diversity. Doug holds a Yachtmaster Offshore qualification, and is a charismatic, adventurous and attentive skipper and host, willing to go the extra mile to ensure you get the most out of your vacation.
