A well-sorted family cruiser with 2 doubles and 1 single berths, plus salon seating can be converted. The known pedigree of the Catalac name has deservedly the nickname of a 'roomaran' with amazing amount of inside, in the cockpit and the spacious deck area.

This boat is ready for cruising, just add people! Extensively refitted by garage engineer owner. There is a light and bright interior designed to be open plan, even with opening windows between fwd stateroom and the salon!
You will not see the crazing of older hatches and windows because the glass has been replaced. She could use an electric windlass for the anchors, a lazybag for the mainsail and maybe a rigging survey, but she is in regular use today and can be purchased for cruising the 2016 season.
The owner (for last 9 years) are selling because they simply do not have enough time to use her, each have an expanding business demanding their time. In the past, they have been cruising cross-channel and along the south coast of UK.
