Catriel was built in 1962 in Sanchez Shipyard, Buenos Aires, by order of YPF, an Argentine oil company, who needed a deep-sea steam towboat. In 1999 she was bought by an Argentine shipping company and used as a cargo boat on the Paranà river: the transports were then reduced because of the economic recession which afflicted the country. In 2004 someone noticed Catriel, which was, by that time, abandoned in Buenos Aires. It was the present ship-owner who, charmed by her elegant and classical shapes, decided to buy her and to transform her into a yacht. After a preliminary study of the feasibility of the project, repair and modernization works started with the aim to maintain the original structural features of the deep-sea towboat.

Repair works were entrusted to Tecnao srl, a shipyard in Buenos Aires under the direction of the current ship owner; a great many materials and structures came from Italy. By March 3rd, 2007 repair works of structural parts were finished and Catriel made the first voyage of her new life navigating the Paranà river, from Buenos Aires up to Iguazù waterfalls and from there back to Buenos Aires. She covered about 1,800 miles under the command of her Captain and his crew.

In December 2007 Catriel was ready to cross the Atlantic so she sailed from Buenos Aires. She covered more than 7,000 sea miles, and docked in Porto Antico, without the slightest problem after 35 days of sea voyage.
