Clean, Comfortable, Catalina 34 Loaded with Options

"Y Knot" comes to the market in very clean condition with many RECENT UPGRADES  as well as options you would desire in a cruising boat such as FULL CANVAS ENCLOSURE, AUTOPILOT, WINDLASS, RADAR, GPS Chartplotter, DINGHY DAVITS, LAZY JACKS & JIB FURLING. (See Full Specs For Recent Upgrades.)

The Catalina 34 has an enormous amount of interior volume for a 34 footer- with Two(2) enclosed cabins and berths for seven! Her Tall Rig assures top performance even in the lightest of winds, and her Shoal Draft Keel provides for worry free ICW cruising and many opportunities for gunkholing. Her autopilot, RADAR, full enclosure w/ all control lines, and electric anchor windlass- all offer an enhanced level of comfort and safety, no matter what the conditions.

Snowbirds Take Note: If you are tired of cold NE winters and ready to head south in a roomy 34 footer in great condition, then "Y KNOT" is a must see! Remember, there is NO SALES TAX in NC (and we are located half-way there already!)  Call today for before she belongs to someone else!

Broker Comments

This boat has been kept behind the owners' home, so cleaning and maintenance are easily accomplished. The results are strikingly obvious when you step aboard....the boat shows very well and is "turn-key" ready, just add your provisions and cast off!
