|This Catalina DS is only 1 of three in Australia, Catalina only made about sixty. They are true Deck Saloon unlike the make believe Jeanneau and other European yatchs coming out to Australia. You can actually sit in the saloon and look out the large saloon windows, up, down and all around, not just up at the sky.
These are true blue water cruising yachts they have special safety features that include water tight collision bulk head, and a moulded skege hung rudder with a massive bearing approx three quarter's down the rudder, so in the event you hit someting you most likly wont bend it, unlike most spade rudders to day.
It is completely self contain wether in marinia or in some secluded spot, One person can sail this yacht with out leaving the cockpit, this includes putting the head sail the Main and the Furling MPS in or out It is the ideal boat if you want to do passages with another couple as the two main cabins are at either end of boat both with their own ensuite, with private access, it has massive storage and cupboards. This boat is built for comfort with two reverse cycle. Air-conditioners, two recliners two large double beds that you can walk around, the saloon table can be lowered electrically it can sleep 7 peple all up. You can sail this boat in winter time with your slippers on and not get wet. There is a large work shop or storage that is acess from the rear bed room or from the cockpit, then you can access the sterring and Gen set compartment from that room. All appliances can be run from shore power or the Gen set plus inverter. If you want a strong well built boat that will take you any where safely, quickley, and be comfortable cant go past these world cruisers The overall condition of boat could only explain as excellent.

This boat is a dream to sail one up, I regularly sail by my self, the only time I may have to go out side the Cockpit if the wind changes direction and I have the MPS up is if I have to bring sheet around the other side.

Has just been Antifouled with Copper Coat on bottom of Keel and rudder Sail Away with good solid boat that wont look tired in years to come, unlike some of the new " Tissie ones out there "
