1989 Catalina 42 MK I

ALMOST

If you're in the market for a 42, you owe it to yourself to see this Sailboat!

Tons of extras and up grades!

Here is some of what a recent SpinSheet review by Jack Hornor had to say about the Catalina 42:

Catalina Yacht has long been one of the most successful sailing yacht manufacturers in the world, but what is perhaps most impressive about a company that doesn’t even advertise its product is the number of hugely successful models they have had since introducing the Catalina 22 in 1970. In a business where a three or four year production run of a few hundred boats is considered a success, I can think of no manufacturer who comes close to Catalina’s success in the number of models that remained in production for ten years or more. Now in its thirteenth year of production with over 700 boats sold, the Catalina 42 is one of the most successful 40 plus footers ever built. 

Catalina’ s in-house design team, led by chief designer Gerry Douglas for the last 25 years, designed the Catalina 42. Introduced with the 1989 model year, the 42 was the first American built sailboat of this size to offer a three-stateroom layout. The Mk I version was built until February 1995 (hull # 477). The hull is constructed of a solid laminate of fiberglass and resin with no core materials. The hull is fitted with a structural fiberglass liner that incorporates the cabin sole as well as berth and furniture foundations.  The deck is a cored composite with fiberglass and ľ" end grain balsa wood. Where deck hardware is installed, ˝" plywood is used instead of balsa wood. The deck and hull are joined in a shoebox fashion with flexible adhesives and stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers on eight-inch centers. There is an aluminum rub rail with vinyl insert fastened at the deck to hull joint with stainless steel screws.

On deck, the Catalina 42 is clean and unobstructed except for deck hatches and handrails. The anchor windlass is located in a foredeck locker to keep it out of the way when not needed. Rigging shrouds are set well inboard to allow effective sheeting angles and easy passage on either side. The mainsheet traveler is located on the cabin top forward of the companionway and out of the way of the dodger and cockpit bimini.The cockpit is large with seats that are 6’8" long and big enough to stretch out on. The helm seat at the transom opens to allow access to a swim platform molded into the transom.

The sailing performance of the Catalina 42 is very respectable, and she has taken her share of silver in club racing. The sail area/displacement ratio of the 42 is a conservative 17, the displacement/length ratio is 196, and the PHRF rating of a stock Catalina 42 is usually around 105.
