This beautiful yacht is the perfect size for San Francisco Bay. Large enough to be comfortable for a weeklong charter up the Delta, but small enough to be fun and easy to handle on a Blustery San Francisco Bay, it has several qualities that ensure its popularity. It has continuous reefing systems which are handled completely from the cockpit, a masthead rig, mid boom sheeting, rigid boom vang. It has a cockpit table as well as stern rail seats built into the stern rail! Although it is designed light like all Catalina designs, its size makes it relatively stiff and tolerant of the Bay conditions. Review the manual carefully, as the reefing system is a dream if operated properly — you can do expensive damage to the sail if you operate the system as you would more standard reefing systems.
