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 cockpit dodger or awning is a must with this design for adequate ventilation of the cabin in inclement weather.

Hull & Deck
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.
