1983 Catalina C-30 Sloop Sailboat in Westerly, Rhode Island

Stock #134581

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

With more than 6000 sold, the Catalina 30 is one of the most successful production sailing yachts in history.

During the long production run of this basic model there were a great number of variations with standard and tall rig configurations, each with a bowsprit option, and also including shoal, wing and deep fin keels.

This particular boat features the tall rig, the bowsprit option and walk through gate and gang plank on the transom.

The boat feels big, both on deck and down below. The first impression of space from the double-wide companionway hatch that slides open over the galley and chart table. It lets the cooking heat escape on southern evenings as the breeze lays down.

Skippers over 6-feet tall often have problems finding full headroom afloat. The Catalina gives you 6'3" height, with bunk lengths to match. And there is walking around room as well, which is very difficult at 30 feet.

The open quarter berth gives the interior a feeling of length that is missing on boats that are chopped into small cabins. The head is large enough to shower, sit down, or change clothes in, all without getting stuck or bruised up.

If you choose or have to, you can turn the boat into a bunkhouse for the kids or guests, with a V-berth double, a dinette double, and a double quarter berth.

While spaciousness is not a sailing characteristic, it is a highly valued cruising feature. And one that alone has sold a lot of Catalina 30s, especially to the wives.

For the skipper who has to have the latest in electronic navigation gadgets, the chart table concentrates the batteries, 12v DC and 120v AC panels, and nav instruments in one location conveniently near the companionway.

The older models usually need additional 120v AC breakers for the charger and receptacle circuits, plus a GFI receptacle to bring their electrical system up to date.

The galley is surprisingly efficient by anyone's standards. It is a deep U-shape to port, out of traffic flow to the cockpit and secure in a seaway (although most cruisers will not cook until the anchor is down).

The counter, sink, and storage space are excellent. So the cook has some chance of turning out a decent meal there, rather than being limited to heating a can of soup or stew. The wide hatch vents cooking heat in the dog days and keeps things brighter on rainy days under the dodger.

A MK II version began around hull# 3300 (1986).(T-shaped cockpit is the most notable change) This boat is number 3225.

Most all of the running rigging is new except for the furling lines. The standing rigging is estimated to be 10 years old.

The boat was equipped with a water heater but has since been removed and the plumbing is still in tact.

The engine was removed and rebuilt in 2015.

Information On Condition

The boat shows normal wear and tear for its age. There are signs that the port lights are leaking, but overall she is a tight seaworthy vessel.

The gelcoat looks good with only a few minor dings and cracks - most likely from dropped winch handles.

Fairly new traveler, running rigging and the engine was removed from the boat in 2015 and was completely rebuilt.
