1984 Catalina 30 Sloop Sailboat in Emeryville, California

Stock #194648

This Catalina 30 is a great sailboat for someone getting into sailing and is the gold standard for quality among 30-foot sailboats. And, this Catalina 30 is one of the finest Catalina 30s on the market as it is in great condition and ready to sail!

It starts with the design of the Catalina 30. The high-aspect-ratio of the keel provides greater righting motion. Additionally, high aspect ratio keels are easier to turn quickly as well as sail close-hauled. And, this Catalina 30 has a lead keel with stainless steel bolts (see pictures), which both indicate the quality of this boat.

With a waterline length of 25', the Catalina's displacement of 10,200 lbs is slightly above average for modern cruiser-racers, which is positive because it gives the boat greater stability.

You combine the high aspect ratios with above-average displacement and you get a sailboat that has the best of both worlds, speed, and responsiveness, as well as stability in foul weather. This performance is what makes the Catalina 30 one of the most successful production sailing yachts in history with more than 6000 sold.

Beyond its performance, the cockpit is large and comfortable for a 30' sailboat and easily accommodates the helmsman at the wheel plus four companions.

Down below, the interior of the Catalina 30 is roomy and quite well laid out. The forward cabin has large V-berths which form a large double when the included board and cushion connect the two sides.

The head is quite comfortable with a toilet, shower, sink, and mirror. There is good storage space for clothes in a hanging locker and drawers opposite the head.

The main cabin is large and comfortable for a 30' boat. There is an L-shaped dining area to port and a straight settee to starboard. In the galley, there is an icebox, refrigerator, stove, sink, and microwave. The aft quarter berth is very large and two people can sleep there with ease.

Information On Condition

This Catalina 30 appears in great condition. It is clean and well cared for. The engine starts right up. The sails, standing rigging and running rigging appear to be in great condition. The only things of note are that the radar is not hooked up and the lines for the traveler need to be installed.
