Catalina Boats for Sale

Catalina Yachts is one of the largest boat manufacturers in the world, with over 60,000 boats manufactured to date.[5] Though Catalina produces boats from as small as eight feet under their Capri nameplate, the company is best known for its production of mid-sized cruisers. The ocean-going Catalina 50 was their largest design, but has been discontinued and replaced by the 470. Most original models are still in production albeit with substantial modifications, and there are examples of every Catalina model still in use.[2]

Gerry Douglas, a principal in the company, became Chief Engineer and V.P in the late 1970s and has designed every boat in the line since then, starting with the Catalina 36. His most recent designs include the 445, the 385, 355, and the 315, all under the banner of the "5 Series." The 5 Series moves the brand to a higher level of performance, finish and engineering. Every model in the series has an emphasis on strength: a five-part structural construction insures a boat that stands up to time and environment; a watertight StrikeZone collision bulkhead is forward; a DeepDefense rudder system for fail-safe steering, and the T-Beam MastStep system, with the benefits of a deck-stepped mast and strength of a keel-stepped mast. The SecureSocket mast support/chain plate system facilitates load resolution and watertight integrity. Knitted fabrics create a stronger laminate without additional weight. Catalina’s lead keels absorb impact for safety, and require less maintenance than other materials. All Catalina yachts larger than 30 feet are built to CE category A standards, are NMMA Yacht Certified, and follow all applicable American Boat and Yacht Council safety standards.

Gerry Douglas, vice president, chief engineer and yacht designer for Catalina Yachts.

Douglas, in a 2012 Cruising World review of the Catalina 315, admitted that during the early years, Catalina’s corporate philosophy was to be the “price leader” in the new sailboat marketplace. With the 2009 introduction of the 5 Series, the company has made a conscious effort to maintain good value while also providing a higher level of design standards and features that some might not expect from the brand. Douglas cited bigger engines, larger battery banks, generous electrical panels, increased tankage, and all-teak interiors—in a package that’s better built, more comfortable, and performs better—as examples of what Catalina is trying to achieve.
