The Catalina 25 is truly an American classic and one of the most popular mid-sized sloops on the water today. Beginning in 1978, Catalina produced the C25 all the way through 1994. It’s a spacious, user-friendly family cruiser that could very well also be a weekend racer. This particular Cat 25 is configured as the tall rig, shoal draft. The Catalina 25 has a shallow but comfortable cockpit. Steering is controlled by the tiller and stern-mounted deep rudder. The companionway is wide which makes stepping below a breeze, which is not always the case in small boats. Once below decks, you’ll find the interior is very spacious and user-friendly. The layout includes a V-berth forward followed by an enclosed head with port-a-potty. The saloon has two opposite settees and the galley is aft to port with a comfortable quarter berths aft to starboard, tucked beneath the cockpit; total sleeping accommodations for up to five. Power is supplied by the 8hp Sailmaster outbord motor. The Catalina 25 didn’t become one of the most popular boats ever built without good reason. It offers good sailing, comfortable accommodations, one-design fleets and active owner’s groups.
This is an excellent opportunity for a great sailing yacht, or a perfect upgrade from a one design. She's perfect for learning the moves of a nice sized sloop. All she lacks is a loving, worthy captain!
