1986 Catalina 30
This is the famous Catalina 30 layout. More room than almost any other 30 foot design. This version has the desirable foldup table with the L shaped dinette. The current owner of this boat has put an amazing list of upgrades to this boat in the last two years. He has added a new diesel engine (installed by Palmer Johnson), new sails, new dodger and canvas by Boat Tailors. The hull and deck appear in very good condition. The woodwork is beautiful. The cushions are a rich deep green and in good condition.
She has a spacious vee berth forward with "tons" of storage.
Next aft to port is the head, with a shower and sump, pressure water and great ventilation. Across from the head are a hanging locker and more shelves for additional storage. The spacious salon is next with an L-shaped dinette to port and a single settee to starboard. The dinette converts easily to a huge double berth for the rare occasions when you really need to sleep seven people. There is generous storage throughout the salon with storage below and behind the dinette and the settee. There are shelves and cabinets outboard on both sides of the salon.
On starboard and just to the right of the companionway is the stand up nav station, with storage and the battery compartment underneath. There is plenty of room for all of your instruments and it is the electrical hub of the boat. The breaker panel is hinged with a key lock and folds out for easy access for maintenance.
Across from the nav station is the U shaped galley. In place of the stove the owner has installed a 110V refrigerator (new in 2000) in addition to the icebox, with extended counter space with a cutting board on top. He also has added a new microwave in 2001. There is a double S.S. sink, pressure water system, manual fresh water system, great counter space, and plenty of storage for all of your galley equipment. There is a pass-through that allows you to keep the trash bin in the lazarette and access it from the galley. Aft and to port (behind the nav station) is the quarterberth. It extends under the floor of the cockpit to easily sleep a couple. There is an opening port and the front is open to the salon for lots of light and air.
