Below are the photos of our Miss Catana being moved from the yard, through the local town to be placed gently into the water. No easy feat when you are a 12.58 metre long x 6.9 metre wide boat that has to cross the village to the water. The Dutch truck that did the move was nothing short of amazing.

Below are a small selection of photos showing how it was done.

Thanks to Mike and Laure for taking the day off to travel with our girl and sending us the photos. Also thanks to the Catana Yard and delivery team – top effort!

    Hi Renee,
    It was very exciting seeing our home “fly” to the water. :)

    Mike our man of international waters and our French friend Laure were kind to represent us on the day and take the photo’s for us.

    I must be honest and say I shed a little tear when I first saw these photos. 17 weeks to go.

    Cheers the Miss
