The Catalina 42 MKII was one of the first American production boats to offer three private sleeping cabins. It’s a handsome boat with nice lines. The bow is raked just enough to give it a clean entry and still maintain a relatively long LWL. There is enough of a forefoot to reduce bow pounding. The hull flares quickly but the wide, 13-foot, 10-inch beam is nicely absorbed into the overall flow of the boat. The beam is carried well aft, providing space for double aft cabins and a roomy cockpit, yet it doesn’t seem excessive like many of today’s boats, and it actually tapers a bit at the transom.
Another sign of how well thought out the 42 MKII is, Catalina, with a care to their finished product and the consumers maintenance, switched to vinylester resin, therefore limiting osmotic blistering. The Catalina 42 is a capable and versatile cruiser with a comfortable interior and a nice sailing hull shape. It is also a sound value on the used boat market. R. Bay Bee is an excellent representation of what a Catalina 42 MKII should look like. She's been well taken care of by her knowledgeable owner and is turn key ready for her new owner.

- Manufacturer Provided Description
- The Catalina 42 MarkII has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. Design, cruising performance, and comfort, all make the Catalina 42 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. Each of the four different cabin arrangements feature varnished teak jointery, ash hull side paneling, excellent light and ventilation. This model is available in three layouts: the Three Cabin Pullman model offers two staterooms aft and the traditional placement of the owners stateroom and spacious head foward with stall shower; the Two Cabin Pullman model offers the traditional mid-ship placement of the owners stateroom and spacious head foward with stall shower; the Two Cabin Centerline model offers cruising couples an alternative v-berth configuration for the owners stateroom and forward head arrangement.
- On Deck
- The Catalina 42 cockpit is spacious and well laid out. The boat is a pleasure to sail and to socialize aboard while dockside, and this is rarely the case. The seats are long enough to stretch out on. The 40-inch wheel is large enough to make steering enjoyable but still easy enough to climb around when going aft to the stern step. The helm seat opens to allow access to the molded stern step. And the two deep lazerettes and two coaming hatches offer plenty of storage.
- The interior features a large head and shower forward in lieu of a traditional V-berth, which is a much better use of space. The master cabin is directly aft of the master head. The salon in the popular three-cabin version features a nice L-shaped dinette to port with the galley opposite. The three-cabin model also features two double cabins aft. The cabins are, for the most part, more spacious than similarly styled European boats. Each contains a hanging locker and enough elbowroom to stand up and change clothes. Overall the interior is roomy, bright and airy with eight opening ports, and overhead hatches throughout.
- The Catalina 42 is not under-rigged, which is a great design feature. It can hoist a lot of sail and move along smartly in light air. Owners talk of attaining 8 knots off the wind without surfing and 7 knots upwind. Throw a following sea into the equation and the 42 can really make miles on passage.
