David and Sheila Blackburn travelled the world to find their new boat, they are no strangers to boating, as they have cruised all over the world. They knew exactly what they wanted and they came to NZ for a quality build at a good price.

They ran into John Hughes(designer) at the end of a Coastal Classic yacht race and hit it off
John took their ideas and designed the boat, he introduced us to the client and they commissioned the build. The construction took 12 months and in that time we built up a very good relationship with David and Sheila, so much so we have been invited to the Pacific for a holiday on the boat as that is where Catenza spends much of her time. CPY have built two of these cats and have moulds in storage for any future clients
