Description:
She is a fresh water boat first launched in Lake Michigan and I moved her to Lake Norman near Charlotte NC in 2012. The Catalina 30 is far and away the most successful racer cruiser ever produced with over 6000 boats manufactured and is the ideal racer, cruiser and weekend condo. It has 6' 2" of headroom in the main cabin, and a built-in 13,000 BTU A/C ,the entire cabin will stay cool even on the hottest days. Built in 1979, she can still hold her own racing against much newer racer cruisers because of her very favorable PHRF rating. She has a Gori 2-blade folding prop and tiller steering which gives the helm a much better feel in light air conditions.
She comes with two sets of sails and sails easily with only the jib sail, so can be single-handed. The racing sails were made in 2013 by Doyle of square-weave Dacron, which are the finest Dacron sails available. The square weave polyester fabric is woven so there are larger diameter threads spread throughout the fabric, giving the sailcloth a checkerboard appearance. This weave increases fabric strength and reduces stretch when compared to traditional Dacron cloth. Both the main and jib sails are in excellent condition. The 155% roller furling jib is a triradial cut to increase performance with a UV Dacron leech cover to protect the sail from sun light when rolled up on the headstay. This gives the leech less weight and enhances sail performance in light air conditions when used with light air jib sheets (included). The jib also has a clear plastic window in the bottom of the sail, allowing you to see through the sail. The original main sail and 100% working jib are included and these are the sails that I use during the winter months. The leech cover on the original working jib is blue Sunbrella. The Doyle racing sails were bagged and stored Nov thru March every year. She is a simple, spacious, fun boat to sail with plenty of storage and has been impeccably maintained! Please do not hesitate to ask questions. All reasonable offers will be considered.
