Meet Cata



I am professionally dedicated to, what has been my lifelong passion, the sea.

I am captain of my own boat and I sail every day.  These last few seasons I have a new boat, a jewel: a classic Mallorcan sailboat, the llaüt “El Gordito”, with which I hope to enjoy and share with all those who sail with me this spirit of freedom and love for the sea that overwhelm me so much.

Come and enjoy with me!

Amazing News!
Internationally famous pop-star Shawn Mendes has released a new single called Summer of Love with  the music video being filmed in Mallorca and featuring our very own “El Gordito”. We are very proud to have  participated in this experience and enjoyed a fun day at sea with the crew and the superstar.

It is one of the most beautiful sailboats in the bay

A perfect day with a great skipper. We had a wonderful day with Cata. She made it easy for us to feel like home. Her sailing boat is an eye catcher. Everything went well. We had a lot of fun swimming and snorkelling. Drinks, food, waves and sunshine. Wowww… what a day ☺️

Today we went for a boat trip with Cata and her amazing boat el Gordito! The atmosphere at deck is special due to the Charme of a restored fisherboat build in 1900. we decided to go for the half day trip and decided together with Cata to head for a calm place one hour away from Palma Harbour . The place she took us was absolutely perfect for us and our two children. On board we got everything we need for a great time there. Schnorchling, stand up paddling everything is possible . In the meantime Cata was taking care of preparing some typically mallorquin food for us. Just another awesome experience on the trip! We can recommend this trip especially for families with kids.

Would recommend this trip to anyone in a heartbeat! We were a group of 7 girls and we had the most special day on our sailing trip with Cata. She ensured we felt safe and welcome on this beautiful boat. It was an open conversation between the group and Cata to decide on our agenda and we had the opportunity to eat, swim, paddle board, snorkle. The food prepared by Cata was a highlight! Will 100% return.

We had a beautiful day sailing with Cata on El Gordito! Everything was perfect for a relaxing day on the water - could not have asked for anything more. The boat was beautiful, the tapas was delicious. Cata was so friendly, would love to do this trip when visiting Palma again and would 100% reccomend.

El Gordito was ideal for sailing around the bay with our family of 5 and Cata was the perfect hostess. She made sure all of our expectations were met and provided a great experience. As a native of Mallorca, she was very knowledgeable and shared her favorite local cuisine on our sail as well as her favorite places on the island. Thank you Cata for the spanish lessons, the sailing lessons and your recommendations! It was a wonderful day!!!

We had an incredible day with Cata on her beautiful wooden 100year old boat! Unfortunately we were running late by 45mins but Cata was very accommodating , gave us back some of our lost time and ensured we made the most of the few hours by taking us to some of the best beaches Mallorca has to offer.She even prepared us a wonderful meal with ingredients from her farm! Thank you Cata, we can’t wait to return for a repeat experience 🙂

This was one of the best days I ever had! And even better for my partner. I asked Cata upfront to have a trip with El Gordito, her beautifully restored wooden sailing boot to propose to my girlfriend, now fiancé 😉 she was really spontaneous, we had a little windy but hot and sunny day and the private trip with just the two of us and her as captain was absolutely perfect. Cata is such a friendly person and experienced sailor who prepared tapas for us and surprised us with a bottle of champagne after the proposal. I can highly recommend the trip to everyone but especially for a romantic trip out for couples.
