The Catalina 30 was built from 1976 to 2008.  With 6430 boats built, the Catalina 30 is one of the most successful production sailing yachts in history. The Catalina 30 remains extremely popular and has stood the test of time.  With a large main cabin and well laid-out deck plan, this Catalina 30 is a joy to sail and cruise. "MOON PIE"  has been extremely well maintained, is in excellent condition and constantly updated. It will be extremely difficult to find another 30 Catalina in better condition.  Look at the others then come to see this one and I think you will agree. 


"MOON PIE" sleeps 7 adults comfortably with a V-berth forward, a double and single berth in the main saloon and a double in the aft quarter berth. The main saloon has loads of room for a 30 foot cruiser.  A folding dinette table offers ample dining space and then folds out of the way to keep the cabin spacious.  The head and shower is forward to port and the galley is aft to port.

Brokers Comment

Do not let he age of this boat fool you.  She is one of the cleanest and well maintained Catalina 30's that I have seen.  She is consistently upgraded and serviced.  And as anyone who ever sailed a Catalina 30 can attest to, she is a joy to sail.
