Are you looking for a ship that has plenty of space below deck, sails fast and is also easy to handle alone? Sufficient headroom and bed length, a separate shower cabin, plenty of space in the galley? And despite all that, only a little draught? Then this Catalina 42 could be something for you.

For the Caribbean

Sophisticated cruising yacht

Catalinas are often known as the "Bavarias of the USA", but this refers to the numbers and not the build quality. The hull is thick, the boats are robustly and heavily built. Nevertheless, the Catalina 42 sails quite fast. Catalinas are often found in the Caribbean, so there is no teak on deck to burn your feet. The gelcoat is also off-white so that it does not dazzle in strong sunlight. In addition, the hatches open forward so that the wind blows through nicely at anchor. The Catalina shipyard really thinks ahead.


Pullmen bed

Beautiful layout

Unlike many boats from the eighties, you are not overwhelmed by mahogany here. The interior is a combination of white and teak and is bright and friendly. To port is the seating area and the navigation corner, opposite to starboard is the spacious galley with double sink, three-burner cooker with oven and a large toploader. Aft of the galley is the smaller of the two heads. Just off the companionway is access to the two aft cabins to starboard and port. Towards the forecastle, at mast level, is the owner's cabin. This type of bed in the middle of the ship is known in English as a pullman berth. It is a very quiet place to sleep at sea. The bathroom in the foreship is very spacious with a separate shower cabin.

No maintenance backlog

Current investments

A lot was put into the boat: for example, the new cake stand that was tailored this year. There were also new toilets. The teak in the cockpit was installed in 2020. The CoppercoatThe underwater ship is super easy to maintain and you can probably sail it for another 6 years before you need to repaint. After a diesel pest this year, a tank cleaning and major engine maintenance was carried out and all lines replaced.


Of course, there is always something to do with older boats. The auxiliary heating is defective, the life raft needs maintenance, the wood on the bathing platform should be replaced, the front hatch is no longer lockable, and the mattresses in the berths could be replaced. None of these are big things, and then you have a great boat that can accommodate the whole family. And the best: The Catalina 42 has a berth in the Marina Wendtorfwhich can be taken over!
