"Kasatka" ex-Pachena is a spectacular one of a kind a custom Doug Peterson design and built by Bent Jespersen in Sidney, B.C. for fast cruising and long distance racing. "Kasatka" has won every race she has competed in. This is a rare opportunity to own this very special yacht!

The current second owner has maintained "Kasatka" in Bristol condition and the boat is in show condition ready for local or offshore adventures.

This is a rare offering for a Yacht that has appeared in movies. A show stopper at outstations, boat festivals and major yachting events.

Winter and Summer covers keep the bright work impeccable.

This is a must see for a serious yachtsman that appreciates quality.
