General Details


Catalina 30 The perfect family cruiser!!! 

 The interior design of the Catalina 30 has helped to make the it one of the best selling boats ever.  Consider that you could combine the production of ten of the most popular 30' model sailboats built in the US over the last 25 years and still not approach the number of Catalina 30s built. A combination of wide beam, a good ballast/displacement ratio of .42, and a relatively low sail area/displacement ratio of 15.1 combine to make the Catalina 30 a very stiff boat under sail. Like all Catalina Yacht offerings, the 30 was sold with a complete cruise package that outfitted them for comfortable cruising right from the start. Her fin keel coupled with a modern underbody provides good performance, with an overall feeling of safety. All halyards and sheets are led aft to the cockpit for complete ease of use for a shorthanded crew. The jib has roller furling and the traveler is well out of the way. The end result is a boat that is easily handled by one person.

The forward cabin V-berth is wide, and measures six-foot, three-inches long.  Aft of the V-berth to port is the enclosed head with wand shower, oval stainless steel sink.  Across is the hanging locker with adjacent drawers. Entering the salon on the starboard side is the settee, that measures six-foot, six-inches long. To port is the L-shaped settee/dinette, which measures 5-feet, eleven-inches, and sets out 4-feet, eight-inches in front of the galley. The dinette converts into a double-berth of 52-inches by five-feet, eleven-inches. Her L-shaped galley is next to port, across from the navigation station, and a wide quarter-berth. The cabin windows are fully draped for privacy.
