1977 Catalina 30 Tall Rig
| A great boat, listed in Boating for Less by S. |
one of the best boat values in its size range, and one of the most
popular 30 footers ever built.
The boat sails nicely, and can be
single handed, especially off a mooring (I have done for a long time)
but also can accommodate large parties with an extremely roomy cabin
that has berth spots for 7—although 2 adults and two children is what
we used it for.
I have had 12-15 people on the boat for a day sail.
Excellent and economical “second home” on the lake, we used it for a
number of years as a place to sleep over with our two kids.
have an optional air conditioning unit that fits in the forward hatch
that we would consider selling.

boats do not have and helps assure a better seal on the hull and helps
Last season repainted bottom with two coats
Interlux bottom paint, and compounded/waxed upper hull.
also tuned up with all new plugs, rotor, distributor cap, condenser
and recently replaced wires.
Also just completed exhaust system
rebuild with new exhaust lines and refurbished exhaust manifold that
was installed with new gaskets.
The kids are gone and with two jobs, just don’t get to use it enough
anymore—but this could be your new home away from home on the water.
