  1. In January 2006, Kaiserwerft launched Catwalk, a very unique semi-displacement 40.5-meter yacht that extends to 42 meters by way of a swim platform. The name Catwalk is based on its interior design concept, stucco walls and fabrics in harmony with Oak and African zebrawood, having both a polished and satin finish, grace the yacht. She was built entirely in-house by KaiserWerft of Bavaria in GRP. The yacht benefits from unusually high ceilings especially in the entrance lobby, which also incorporates a lounging area with 3-meter ceilings.
  2. In continuity with previously built yachts, large windows in the Observation lounge compliment the Salon, a few steps away. Exclusive staircases to the lower deck for both the VIP and Guests are an unusual feature. The large Master suite on the main deck incorporates a Nautilus, an unusual and unique seat at 2 different levels in the bow area. A Penthouse in the Sky-lounge is equipped as a discotheque. Its floor has oak paneling certified to be over 150 years old and 3 glass-frames hold oak certified to be over 3,000 years old.
  3. In contrast to most yachts, Catwalk has a full walk-around on the main-deck, which results in the walk-around being at a higher level. Access to the bow is via a set of srairs. Sun-space can be experienced on the bow area by way of a dining table which levels with the seating to become sun-pads. There is also a sunning area on the superstructure which incorporates a sunbrella and substantial seating, as well as an aft top-deck which incorporates a Jacuzzi and sun-beds.
