Description: One of the most popular boats ever produced the Catalina 30 is an ideal starter boat. Designed for ease of sailing and comfort this Catalina is perfect if you are looking for an economical yet spacious boat with a functional layout and roomy cockpit. With an efficient sail plan, diesel engine and roller furling this boat can get your sailing dreams under way. Here is a lovely 1982 Catalina 30 with a Universal diesel, in great condition, for sale in Boston. This is the perfect cruiser, roller furl headsail, wheel steering, diesel power, and an autopilot. This single owner yacht has everything you would ask for in a cruising sailing yacht to gunk hole with your family or friends. The Catalina 30 was first introduced in 1974, and more than 6400 were built by the end of 1997, Catalina claims that this is the most popular 30 ft boat worldwide, a boast that is difficult to argue. Catalina utilizes a standard lay-up of various types of fiberglass cloth and plastic resin in the construction of the hull. Deck construction includes either balsa wood or plywood sandwiched between fiberglass laminates. There are fiberglass pans and liners and random full and partial plywood bulkheads for structural support. The deck and hull are joined with the deck fitted over the hull in a shoebox fashion, with a sealant in between. An aluminum rub rail and stainless steel self-tapping screws on about 3" centers secures the deck and hull together. The keel is external lead fastened with stainless steel bolts. The rig is a simple deck-stepped masthead sloop with single upper shrouds and spreaders, double lower shrouds and split backstay. The engine of the Catalina 30 is located amidships beneath the dinette seat. This is, in fact, the best location for an engine in terms of weight distribution. The accommodation plan of the Catalina 30 has been so popular that even though it is one of the easiest modifications for a builder to accomplish, the layout has remained unchanged for the first 25 years. The V-berth cabin forward is followed by a port side head and shower and starboard side-hanging locker. Further aft the main saloon has an L-shaped dinette to port and settee to starboard followed by a good sized galley to port and navigation station to starboard. There is a starboard side quarter berth which is plenty wide for two people. The companionway opening is exceptionally wide which, when open, makes the cabin appear even bigger than it is A combination of wide beam, good ballast/displacement ratio of .42, and relatively low sail area/displacement ratio of 15.1 results in the Catalina 30 being a very stiff boat under sail. This is a feature many sailors find comforting. This Catalina 30 is a single owner boat with an exceptionally clean interior, and all the equipment to make this boat a wonderful single hander or an family boat. There is nothing that I do not like about this boat. Contact owner today! Will not last at this price!
