This Catalina 34 is a perfect cruising sailboat for the Chesapeake Bay or coastal waters. It is built solid, yet provides plenty of room and comfort.

The layout of this boat was ahead of its time for 1986, with two full cabins with doors for privacy and a sizable central head. There is a nice large dinette to starboard and large settee to port; both of these can convert to sleeping areas.

The galley includes a double sink, a two burner stove on gimbals, and a sizable ice box. The ice box is electric and can run on either 12 volt boat power or 120 volt shore power. 

The head includes an marine toilet, shower floor pump, and sink with pull out shower.
