The Catalina 30 is arguably one of the most popular coastal sailboats ever built. Strong hull, easy one man sailing off shore or around the world. This particular boat has had the pleasure of sailing to Catalina, Marina Del Rey, Point Dume and the Channel Islands.

Current owner has owned this boat since Nov 2012. Using as a liveaboard and now wants a bigger boat. Seller has taken the time and money to fix minor things needing attention and making some improvements along the way.On any 40 yr old boat many owners have had different ideas and they show it. This one needs some minor attention if you want to spend the time tidying up hoses and wiring or not at all; it works fine. Current owner replaced outdated lighting inside and has LED spreader lights not installed yet(included). Replaced the solar Fan in the Galley. Bought 2 new batteries (Best ones Die Hard Makes!) Gel type Marine batteries and added digital Voltage gauges for each so you know where you stand at a glance. Also replaced the stereo with a new Sony AM/FM/CD/USB/Sirius XM Unit. Replaced the toaster oven with a better larger one and a portable butane stovetop. Finally added a 1500 WATT Sine Wave Inverter for power while on overnight trips.

Last April seller had the exterior stripped, rubbed out and waxed. All the woodwork redone. And the boat is washed top and bottom monthly.
