Catalina 30 Mark II

Murray Yacht Sales was a Catalina Dealer for the Gulf Coast in the 1980s and the MYS Team knows Catalina.  We are in regular communication with Gerry Douglas and Sharon Day.  Contact us when you are looking for a Catalina or looking to sell your Catalina.
The Catalina 30 was introduced in 1974 by the Catalina Yachts Company in California.  There have been three series of the Catalina 30 design:
Mark I – Produced from 1975 to 1986
Mark II – Produced from 1986 until 1994
Mark III – Produced from 1994 to 2006

All three revisions refer largely to revisions of the cockpit and redesigning the keel. There are three types of keels; the original 5′ 3″ deep keel is still preferred for all-around performance where water depth is no problem. The early 4′ 4″ shoal keel has been replaced by the modern 3′ 10″ deep wing keel.

The Catalina 30 was the largest and longest continuous production keel boat in the world, with over 6,500 hulls produced.  2001 American Sailboat Hall of Fame Inductee.
