  She is the fifth yacht built out of Delta's proven full-displacement design and is both Lloyd's and MCA classed. Styled by the in-house Delta Design Group - who is also responsible for the entire engineering package - her striking exterior is dominated by a long, raised sheer line with gentle slope. Her curves and sculpted lines are accentuated by a rich, warm shade of white, raised teak cap rail and red boot stripe. A centerline walkway splits the forward portion of the superstructure and large hull-side windows lengthen her stance.

Katya's owners wanted to create an interior that is elegant yet comfortable - spaces suitable for a family at home on the seas. Working in collaboration with their designer, Jean-Claude Canestrelli and the Delta Design Group, they chose dark figured Khaya veneers, Cinamora burls and Crotch Mahogany as the featured woods. Color was especially important to the owners, as they were drawn to shades of burgundies and teals. Accents of brushed nickel and gold were chosen for their soft but rich appearance.

The main salon is surrounded by breathtaking views through large windows and curved glass entry doors flanked with a mirrored set of handsome bar cabinets. Guest and service traffic will flow easily forward past the glass encased art displays into the dining salon where a custom mahogany dining table is anchored with a bow-front hutch. Matching buffets both port and starboard are finished in Crotch Mahogany with inlays of Breccia Vendome stone.

The full-width master, located forward on the main deck, features large hull-side windows perfect for taking in the morning sunshine or enjoying a moonlit starry sky. Below deck are four ample size guest cabins with a watertight passage way for easy access to the crew quarters. One of the feature elements of Katya is her stone work. In the guest heads a wide spectrum of Onyx was used including green, white, and a rare pink. Like the main living spaces, the guest areas feature warm tones, satin finishes, Dune Novasuede overheads and soft upholstered wall panels.

The yacht's stone-floored foyer and central staircase with a unique brushed stainless balustrade and sweeping Khaya handrail act as a focal point of fine craftsmanship and dramatic curves. A second staircase, for crew passage, provides access from the galley to the upper deck. The galley features four commercial grade refrigerator/freezers, butler's pantry and generous storage for dry goods. A third staircase provides access for the crew below deck to crew mess and accommodations for eight. Captain's quarters are located aft of the wheelhouse on the upper deck. The crew area is designed to feel bright and open, with Anigre woods and light wall coverings.

Her decks, with large walk-arounds, offer a wide selection of entertaining and dining sites—each with its own beautiful qualities. In addition to the aft dining area on the main deck, the upper deck is also configured with a generous outdoor dining area for ten. Just inside is an open, casual skylounge with bar, game table and great views of the outdoors. This space is perfect for intimate dining or evening soirees.

If it is the sun you are after, then the sun deck will be just your spot. This spacious area is equipped with a central bar, hot tub, lots of lounge chairs, a day head and stowaway workout equipment - all of this and little reason to leave. Handsome teak decks are on all outdoor areas including the sun deck. Finally, at the center is a carbon fiber arch - a slender and continuously curved surface that houses the yacht's vital communication systems and lends sophistication to the profile.

Katya is powered by a pair of Caterpillar 3508 engines and has zero-speed stabilizers with an integrated central hydraulic system. The engine room is complete with an enclosed control room and engineer's office. The main tender is stowed in an aft opening garage with a hydraulically actuated cradle for deployment. A second crew tender is stowed on the upper deck with jet skis and toys. Her full-displacement hull design allows for large tank storage. Carrying over 20,000 US Gallons of fuel, she has a range of over 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
