The Catalina 42 has a well conceived and executed interior for living aboard and/or  cruising. She has two separate staterooms, each with adjoining private head and showers for her Owners and Guests.  There are numerous opening hatches and port lights to afford more than adequate ventilation and light. The lighter all teak interior woods lend to a bright and airy feeling below. The space on the 42 Catalina is unrivaled among 42 footers. The forward owner’s cabin has a very large double Pullman style berth to port , a cedar lined hanging locker and several drawers to starboard. There are two extra large drawers beneath the berth. The forward head has great ventilation with a large overhead hatch. The shower compartment is forward with a sealing lexan door. The main salon is the entertainment center on this fine yacht with a beautifully varnished teak dining table surrounded with gently curved deep seated settee. Teak shelves and cabinets are outboard the settee. On the starboard side is the Navigation station with its instruments, CD/stereo and flat screen TV. A swing-out navigator's seat completes the navigation station area. Just aft of the nav station is a double settee with the electrical panel just outboard. Two teak cabinets are above the nav station and electrical panel. Opposite to port is a large C-shaped dinette with seating for 6. Storage below and outboard of the seating. Next aft is the L-shaped alley with abundant storage throughout. Opposite to starboard is the second head compartment, with access from the salon as well as the aft cabin. The aft cabin has a large double quarter berth arrangement, with drawers and hanging locker.
A well designed and equipped L-shaped galley with a 3 burner Princess propane stove, affording safe meal preparation underway, at anchor or dockside. Dual polished stainless sinks are located near the centerline ensuring that they do not fill with seawater on any tack. The countertops are molded Granitcoat that wrap around from the sinks outboard past the stove to the refrigerator.  The refrigerator has top and front opening doors, plus the owner routed cold air from the refrigerator to the ice box (spillover refrigeration) that eliminates the need for ice in “the ice box” There is a new Emerson microwave, and aft of the galley is 3 sliding storage bins that serve as a large pantry.  There is a custom drawer under the microwave that holds enough cooking utensils to please even the best gourmet cook.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Catalina 42 has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. By leading in design, cruising performance, and comfort, the Catalina 42 has become the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull of the 42 MkII is high volume, and easily driven, with a fine entry, firm midship section, and smooth run aft terminating in a modified reverse transom with an uncommonly spacious and functional boarding platform. A long, horizontal skeg runs aft between the fin or wing keel and the rudder for sure tracking. The rudder is large and balanced, ensuring control in all conditions. The Catalina 42 MkII deck was designed with shorthanded sailing in mind. All the halyards, the mainsheet and the single line main reefing controls are led to the cockpit, and placed to be operated from under the dodger when necessary. The wide weather decks and inboard shroud base make passage forward easy and secure. The bow roller and below deck electric windlass greatly simplify anchor handling. Both the two and three cabin arrangements feature varnished teak joinery and ash side paneling on the hull. Excellent light and ventilation are provided naturally from aluminum-framed opening hatches and ports. Numerous recessed halogen lights offer an inviting ambiance.
This has to be one of the cleanest sailboats I have seen in a long time.  She may be a 1999 but she shows better than many 2009 boats.  This is truly a turn key boat that is ready to go today.
