1986 Catalina 30 Sloop Sailboat in San Mateo, California

Stock #224542

PRICE REDUCED FURTHER FOR QUICK SALE! SEE CONDITION SECTION BELOW.

This Catalina 30 is a sailor's boat through and through and has a lot of upgrades to make it perform no matter what you ask of it. Read on to learn more.

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 and upgrades, 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. This Catalina has two tables that can be used in the dining area, a small table for two people, and a larger table for 5 that folds up against the forward bulkhead when not in use (see pictures of both).

In the galley, there is an icebox, refrigerator, stove, sink, and microwave.

Information On Condition

Overall, the boat is in good shape. The bottom paint was done at the end of 2018. The dodger canvas is ready for replacement, and sails and rigging are likely in the last third of their life. The cabin is in great shape, with varnished wood and good upholstery.

This Catalina would be worth twice the list price if it wasn't for an engine issue that surfaced recently. A mechanic who performed a cursory evaluation suspects there is a blow by issue in the injectors and recommended a compression and leak test. The owner prefers to reduce the price to compensate for this issue.

Prior to this issue, the engine was well maintained. The exhaust system was replaced including putting in a $600 custom exhaust pipe.
