1989 Catalina 34

Donated 1989 Catalina 34 from a longtime volunteer skipper that is in nice condition.

The Catalina 34 is a popular boat on Chesapeake Bay for many good reasons. It is very well constructed, with a great layout inside and out, with solid handling to take on some rougher weather, while keeping you comfortable.

The sail inventory includes a main sail with lazy-jacks and boom sail bag, a roller-furling jib and a spinnaker with a dousing sock. All sails are in very good, ready to sail condition. On deck there are 4 Lewmar self-tailing winches. It has a built-in electric anchor windlass in the bow. The 25hp Universal Diesel motor starts and runs well, with a smooth shifting transmission.

There is a nice range of electronics and other upgrades on the vessel.

The cabin can sleep six in two berths, and the main cabin area, with air conditioning. The galley is nicely equipped with a propane oven/stove combo, refrigerated icebox and a microwave.

Overall, the Catalina is in solid, ready-to-sail condition that only needs some TLC for minor cosmetic projects.

This Catalina 34 will not last long on the market.  Come see it today.
