The Catalina 36 has a very welcoming, roomy and ventilated salon .  Entering a large companionway with 4 nicely spaced steps places your center line.   With a full "U" shaped galley to port, great for working underway or on the hook.  Adjacent is a Nav Station with a swing out chair .  Starboard and aft lends access to the aft stateroom with an athwartship double berth with a hanging locker.  Mid salon is a "L" shape sofa to port with a bulkhead mounted dining table that stows neatly away.  When lowered in place, it allows the sofa to serve as a large dinette.  Lower the table all the way down and you have yourself a mid ship double berth.  To starboard is a long settee, with the center section that converts to a game table between two seats.  Moving forward is a great storage cabinet with 3 deep drawers and roll top covered area for either a TV or books !   Adjacent to port is a large "wet" head with dual access (from salon & fwd stateroom) .   Forward is a spacious, well-ventilated V berth stateroom, with a cedar hanging locker to starboard and drawers and storage bins below the berth.
