KALINA: A Morgan Yacht, KALINA was designed for Caribbean charter sailing. Fun, fast, beamy (wide) and stable, KALINA has a roomy and shaded cockpit as well as flush decks that are great for sunbathing. The transom ladder provides easy access in and out of the water, and along with a fresh water rinse, makes KALINA an ideal boat to snorkel and swim from.

Captain Kati & Brian Bradley
Captain Kati Bradley grew up on the California coast and has been a water person her whole life. Kati started enjoying the beach as a baby and began power boating and water skiing with her family when she was around 7 years old. She was 12 when she sailed for the first time and it was love at first tack. Learning to sail in San Francisco Bay, taught her a few things, for one, warm water sailing is a lot more fun than cold water sailing. Capt. Kati has cruised the Pacific Coast, Baja and mainland Mexico and then made the ‘milk run’ to the Marquesas. From the Marquesas, she stopped in the Tuamotus, finally making her way to the Society Islands. She spent about 8 months altogether in French Polynesia. She has also sailed the Gulf of Mexico on deliveries to/from Florida.
Brian was born and raised in the Northern California wine country. He didn’t know anything about sailing until he met Kati (“the woman to blame”, also “the love of his life”), who introduced Brian to the sport in the late 90’s. When the sails filled for the first time, Brian was hooked. Brian spent the last 15 years working in the architectural industry with his last 2 years in the Houston area as a project manager for a design/build firm. He traded in his T-square for a winch handle and moved to paradise to sail with his lovely wife (aka Captain Kati).
Capt. Kati and Brian, are the owner/operators of KALINA and currently live and work in the Virgin Islands. Kati is also a qualified ASA instructor.
