The Catalina 34 marked the company’s transition from quarter berths to true aft cabins and two private stateroom layouts. With her tall rig, she will handle the full range of Midwest sailing conditions. This is a proven design from a company known for a high level commitment to its customers. She offers lots of opportunity for good family fun at a very affordable price.
The interior has the warmth and richness of oiled teak. The headliner is textured, white fiberglass for added brightness to the interior. Nine opening port lights, 4 fixed ports, 2 skylight hatches and the companionway provide excellent natural light. There is a good mix of DC & AC lighting to illuminate the teak and holley cabin sole.
The master forward cabin has a comfortable Vee berth w/filler cushion, reading lights, cabin fan, hanging locker, shelves, drawers, deck hatch, port and starboard opening ports.
The salon’s starboard dinette drops to a double berth. The port settee serves as single berth and a seat for the nav station. There is ample storage under, behind, and outboard of the seating. Two cabin fans and a large companionway protected by a dodger gives superior ventilation below decks. The teak interior grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.
The L-shaped galley to starboard has storage galore, near center line deep stainless steel double sinks with manual water foot pump, hot and cold pressure water with a 6 gallon, 110v AC/engine heated hot water heater, a large, top load, insulated ice box w/Adler Barbour refrigeration w/freezer, and a CSI two burner CNG stove w/oven.
The aft facing navigation station is to port across from the galley. The chart table is large with ample related lockers and room for an array of electronics.
The head compartment is to port with a manual head & holding tank, countertop w/ sink, handheld shower, shower sump pump, solar deck vent, and opening port.
The aft stateroom has a comfortable double berth with stand-up headroom just inside the door. Two opening ports, a solar fan, and cabin fan keep the air moving.
“Hands Free” offers a good blend of above and below deck comfort in your slip or underway. This is your chance to enhance relationships with a good family orientated boat.
