Hull Material

The Catalina 42 has proven to be a very enduring design, and the 42 MKII version takes the design to a new level. By leading in design, cruising performance, and comfort, the Catalina 42 has become the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull is high volume, and easily driven, with a fine entry, firm midship section, and smooth run aft terminating in a modified reverse transom with a spacious and functional boarding platform. The Catalina 42 MKII deck was designed with shorthanded sailing in mind. All the halyards, the mainsheet, boom vang, topping lift and the main sail reefing controls are led to the cockpit, and placed to be operated from under the dodger when necessary. The wide weather decks and inboard shroud base make passage forward easy and secure. The twin bow rollers and below deck electric windlass greatly simplify anchor handling. As you will read below, considerable upgrades have been completed that will ensure she is fit for purpose for the coming cruising season. Coastal or offshore sailing, the choice is yours.
