The Catalina 270 was designed to provide rewarding performance and comfortable accommodations for the active sailing enthusiast. Both goals are accomplished through the selection of a stable hull form with a generous beam and fine entry forward. This approach delivers a hull that is wide at the sheer for maximum deck space, reserve buoyancy, and good performance to weather.

Keel: The elliptical wing keel (Shoal Draft 3.5 ft) is matched with a balanced elliptical rudder to ensure predictable handling and a balanced helm in various conditions.

Rigging: Double spreaders rigging with fore and AFT lowers which make the mast very stable, and easy to set up and tune. This design provides the narrow shroud base necessary for proper genoa sheeting to weather.

Deck: Highlighted by a “big boat” cockpit with Catalina’s hallmark full-length cockpit seats with ergonomically contoured seat backs necessary for long-term comfort aboard.

Cabin: In the cabin, comfortable seating around the varnished teak table provides a great place for meals, relaxing, reading, or playing games.

Galley: Well-planned for the cook, With special attention given to usable storage, a large ice box, and a flip-up counter over the two-burner stove.

Head: The head is a single-piece molded unit that is easy to keep clean and fresh. In the sole is a standard shower pan.

Master Cabin: By night the AFT cabin is a private and comfortable retreat for two. The berth forward can be extended and enclosed for two. with the settees functioning well as single berths.

To provide more time for owners to enjoy sailing the 270, low-maintenance materials have been used on deck and mechanical systems have been designed for easy access for service. Quality materials and an engineered structural system carefully assembled promise the 270 to be durable, reliable, and a pleasure to own for many years to come.
