WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY - REVIEWS PREVIOUS GUESTS

“We stay on the boat for 3 Nights and had an absolutely brilliant time. This isn't somewhere you sleep, it's an experience. There's probably no other Place in Barcelona With such wonderfull views and such a great outdoor area. We spend countless hours just chilling on the aft deck. We were 8 People so just got cabs when we wanted to get into town (about 9 euros pr taxi). Cas really is a fantastic host too - he jokes and has a laugh, but is very profesional and takes pride in his work and his vessel. We had the paella dinner and it was superb.' - Martin J., Oslo, Norway (written on Tripadvisor)

'Just spent the last few days on the St Katherine and what a great time it was. We were a party of eight and hired the whole boat for a special birthday. Cas and Irene are absolutely fantastic and have certainly got a jewel in the crown here.' - Kevin H., New Malden, United Kingdom (written on Tripadvisor )

About Cas and Irene Pijpers

We are Cas & Irene Pijpers, originally from the Netherlands, but since 2012 we live in Spain and rent out our beautiful 80ft (24 mtrs) boat the St. Katharine in the peaceful marina Port Forum Barcelona.

Cas and Irene Pijpers purchased this boat in 2006

Why Cas and Irene Pijpers chose Forum Diagonal Mar

The St. Katharine is a former Fleet Tender from the Royal British Navy (ex. Denmead A363) and served from 1969 till 1996.

When we bought her in 2006, she was moored in Ireland and in a really bad shape. In the 2 years following we transformed her into a comfortable yacht with accommodation for up to 11 guests.

On our website you can find historical information and view pictures from the Navy period, the complete refit in 2006-2008 and the present renting activities.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on board of our luxury motor yacht St. Katharine in Barcelona and shall do our utmost to give you an unforgetable stay!

What makes this boat unique

IMAGINE.... After spending a day in Barcelona or soaking up the sun on the beach, you can return to the St Katharine and relax on the beautiful lounge area on deck while sipping your drink and watching the world go by in the marina and beyond to the sea. Enjoy lunch or bbq dinner on deck. After the sun has slipped over the horizon you are guaranteed a great night’s sleep in your air conditioned cabin downstairs. Next morning breakfast on deck and why not take the dinghy out and go exploring!

Staying aboard of the St. Katharine brings you all the beauty from the Mediterranean and an unforgettable holiday!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to celebrate a mother who turns 70 and who is used to stay at hotels. The answer is St katharine. Perfect accommodation in a perfect city in a perfect place with perfect hosts. The fact that it occurs at a perfect price on everything from accommodation to bar does not make it worse. Thanks Cas and Irene for making my Mother's birthday not only a day to remember, but a whole week. Sincerely, Jonas

What a wonderful holiday we had!

  • 5 of 5

Not really looking to stay on a boat, we found this by accident and how lucky that we booked this! We had such a wonderful holiday with our family on this boat! Everything was perfect; boat was beautiful, very clean, cool (had airco), had large decks to eat (big bbq) and to relax on, all kinds of drinks on board (for very reasonable prices) and even spacious en-suite bathrooms. And located in a calm marina, but not far from the center, specially not when taking cabs! Cas the owner checked us in, served us delicious tapas and even popped by the next morning with fresh bread just to ask if everything was okee, if we had any questions etc. Such a nice host and great cook!

Our entire family had an amazing time and we definitely recommend it if you are going to Barcelona and want to have a wonderful holiday! You will not regret it!

An exceptional holiday, we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with some friends 4 days on the St. Katharine and had a fantastic time. Breakfast every morning outside in the sun, great BBQs on deck in the evenings …. What a wonderful experience in between all those super yachts.

Cabins are spacious, clean and the bathrooms are even better than a hotel!

Beach on walking distance and in less than 10 min with the taxi (8 euro!) to the city center.

Boat was very well equipped, the bars were filled with all kinds of drinks for very reasonable prices.

Cas was a very good and friendly host and always helpful, brought us even some groceries so we could make our own breakfast and meals on board.

An exceptional holiday, we will definitely go back next year!
