1979 Catalina 30 Sloop Sailboat in Crossview Marina

Stock #138837

This Catalina 30 has never left Lake Erie and was owned by the same sailor for 35 years until purchased a few years ago by its current marine-engineer owner. He is stepping up to 45 foot - making this great entry sloop available!

During its production run from 1972 to 2008 the design sold 6,430 examples, making it the most successful keelboat design ever built. It is famous for its simplicity and functionality.

This boat spent the first 20+ years of its life in heated storage. The Universal Atomic 4 is a tank of a power plant. Tiller steer with autopilot. Galley to aft with twin sinks. Spacious double aft cabin.

There is a heavy duty Pro Furl to manage the spinnaker which has only been used once in its life.

Cradle included.

Information On Condition

This vessel is clean and very solid for a 40 year old boat. Riggings appear to be in working order and the sails look to have much life left in them. Owner has just rebuilt and the rudder and fiberglassed it, and he expects to have the bottom repainted sometime in June 2018. 'Catalina smile' keel flex will be repaired at this time.

Bottom paint just redone August 2020!

The bolt on keel was re-torqued two years ago. Rudder was rebuilt. New starter for the engine.

Owner does all of his own maintenance.
