1997 Catalina 42 MkII

Northport, New York


The Catalina 42 MKII has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. Design, cruising performance, and comfort, all make the Catalina 42 the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull of the 42 MKII is high volume, and easily driven, with a fine entry, firm midship section, and smooth run aft terminating in a modified reverse transom with an uncommonly spacious and functional boarding platform.

The current owners have secured their next boat and offer her up to new owners and new adventures.  As a result - it is being offered at a fair price.  Please call for information and to make an appointment to see her.
