The Catalina 36 is a US-built production cruiser, which although rare in the UK, was built in large numbers. This 1989 example had a replacement engine fitted in 2004, standing rigging replaced in 2011, and some new electronics in the last three years. She offers a remarkable amount of well equipped and comfortable cruising boat for the money. Buyers can have the use of a fully paid up mooring on the River Dart until March 31st 2019.

Sailplan

Catalina Yachts was started in 1969 by Frank Butler, formerly of Coronado Yachts. The first model was the Catalina 22, and by the beginning of the 1980s over 10,000 of these had been built, along with 27, 30 and 38 ft models.

Designed by Frank Butler and Gerry Douglas, the first Catalina 36 was built in 1982, and with various very minor alterations these Mk I boats were in production until 1993/94. The Mk II then remained in production until 2005, by which time over 3,000 36s had been built. The main differences are that Mk II boats have a sugarscoop stern, and extra hull windows, plus a slightly different aft cabin layout.

The Catalina 36 was built with a choice of a 5' 10" lead fin keel, or a 4' 3" lead winged fin - the wing keel being a very common choice by buyers. The high volume of manufacture means that although Catalina prices can be kept relatively low, the build quality is better than a pure "built down to a price" boat. The hulls of the Catalina 36 are solid GRP, with no balsa or foam cores. The deck of the Mk I boats is a GRP sandwich with marine ply as the core. Mk II boats have balsa sandwich decks.

Catalinas are sometimes regarded as US equivalents of Westerlys - but without the drooping headlinings. The interiors are also remarkably spacious - Americans often find European boats cramped.

Saloon table

As standard the Catalina 36 has a dinette table to port, with two seats to starboard with a folding table between them. This small table between the two seats drops to form a single berth. The present owner of this boat usually keeps the main saloon table unbolted, and uses the dinette area as an open lounging space - see below. The main dining table reinstates with a few bolts.

Galley

The interior teak joinery is in very good order for a boat approaching 30 years old.
The galley has twin sinks, twin iceboxes and a gimballed two-burner and oven cooker.

Saloon aft

The aft "cabin" is separated from the saloon by a roll-down blind rather than a door,
possibly to avoid it being too stuffy in hot climates. It can be configured as a under-cockpit double plus a single berth (first photo below) or with an infill as a very large transverse double as in the second photo
