General Details


Equipped for cruising and ready to go!

Welcome to one of the most popular sailing boats ever built. There are so many options with the Catalina 42. She is outfitted for cruising with Raymarie electronics, Wind generator, solar panels,Stainless steel Arch  and is ready now to head out!..She is large enough to live aboard yet easy to single hand...good for club racing or cruising the Caribbean and beyond.  Low maintenance exterior means more fun and less work.  This Catalina 42 is the very desirable two stateroom/two head version with the shallow draft, wing keel. Each stateroom has an adjoining head to afford owner and guest their privacy. The Galley has the Mega Pantry configuration. The light teak interior makes for a very open, bright, and airy feeling below. 


Backround and History of the Model
For those of you that may not be familiar with this model, this is an excerpt from the Catalina Owner’s site,  “ The Catalina 42 Mark I was introduced in 1988 and evolved until 1995 when it was replaced by the Mark II Model. The hull was adapted from an earlier racing hull designed by Nelson Merik . Catalina Yachts modified the racing hull with a new cabin top, interior, and rig in order to make it a comfortable coastal cruising boat which two people could easily handle. The spacious design is comfortable for a gang of crew on a week-long cruise. With a race-bred hull and a substantial rig, the boat is moderately stiff and capable of weather legs approaching 8 knots and downwind action which can push the knot meter past 15 knots. She has a PHRF handicap rating of 102/108 (So. California), which has been the subject of many heated discussions by Cat 42 skippers. But as the sun sets over your favorite hideaway anchorage there is little argument that the Catalina 42 is hard to match for her comfort.  The Catalina Mark II was introduced with the two cabin MK II hull #480 in Nov. 1994. The first three-cabin MK II was hull #505 built in May 1995 . The most significant changes were the carrying of the beam further aft with a subsequent enlargement of the cockpit and a larger transom with softer lines. The rudder has also been redesigned and features a larger elliptical shape for increased control.”  A significant improvement on the Mk II was the addition of 2 storage lockers, with drains, on the swim platform. It’s a safe place to store fuel for the dinghy, propane for BBQs, snorkeling equipment or cleaning supplies, or anything that you do not want to leak into your boat.
History of Caloosa Spirit
Caloosa Spirit is owned by the original owners who bought her in California and had her trucked to Florida for commissioning. They then they sailed her 1600 miles in 13 days to the Virgin Islands.  She was put into charter service for 5 years and they continued to cruise the Islands until 2003 when they returned to Florida. They have leisurely cruised both coasts of Florida, the Florida Keys, the East Coast to Chesapeake Bay, and the Bahamas. Many improvements have been made to her, including adding a Stainless Steel arch, solar panels, wind generator and cockpit adjustable sheet blocks , just to mention a few. They continued to cruise the Bahamas and back to the Keys and West coast of Florida. Some lucky buyer is sure to get as much enjoyment out of her as they have.
