|Handsome cruising yacht, designed with great attention to detail and function and equipped for offshore cruising. Over 2m headroom and generous use of hatches and ports creates an open, airy interior but it's the palatial aft master suite that will seriously impress. All sail controls lead aft to the cockpit and with the brilliant "Dutchman" system for controlling the flaking of the mainsail this boat is easily handled by a couple. Catalina's are some of most strongly build and well designed production yachts and their reputation as comfortable, livable and safe offshore cruisers is well established. "Dragonfly" has had just one owner since new and has done extensive cruising in PNG and the SW Pacific islands. Australian registered and well equipped for long-distance sailing with wind generator, parachute anchor, satellite communications, life raft etc.

||Climb aboard either from the swim platform via the walk-thru transom or lifeline gates either side. This cockpit has to be the biggest on any cruising yacht of similar size, seating 6-8 with ease. The aft rail incorporates Juliet seats in either aft corner and an outboard motor bracket. Very generous on-deck storage in two full-depth cockpit lockers and two smaller lockers on transom. A complete set of cockpit cushions create a very comfortable area for living and entertaining.
L-shaped galley to port of companionway steps and entry to a full width aft cabin. This HUGE cabin with a tranverse double with innerspring mattress. Headroom is well over 6ft in the cabin entry and this space is very bright and airy, with two opening ports and two large hatches. With huge amounts of storage, generous floor space and private access to the bathroom this really is an owner's suite with "WOW-factor". The large bathroom on the stbd side has a separate shower stall for real liveabord comfort and doors to aft cabin and saloon.
Seating for 6 or 7 comfortably in an expansive and well-lit saloon. To stbd the three-seater settee/berth can be converted to two seats and a central table, while large and small central dining tables offer flexible layouts to suit the occasion. Plentiful lockers provide good storage for long-term living. The chart table and electrical panel are in the stbd aft corner.
An offset double (with innerspring mattress) in the fwd cabin makes access so easy. Or you can add the infill for a huge berth. Again, storage is a feature, with plenty of capacity in drawers, lockers and hanging lockers. Exceptional headroom throughout (6' 9" or 2.08m) and generous use of hatches and ports create a very open and airy interior. Quality materiels and fittings are used throughout with solid timbertrim and leather-look upholstery.
