The hull shape is fairly moderate in all aspects, although beam has been exaggerated and pushed aft as with a lot of the French boats we see. This is done to increase cockpit area and usable interior space. I'm not wild about fat boats. But note the size and location of the double berth aft; there is the advantage of beam. This boat has full keel 6-foot draft. The D/L is 230 and the ballast-to-displacement ratio is 35 percent, typical for a boat like this.
This is quite a layout for a boat that is only 32 feet, 6 inches long. Of course, it has the beam of a 38-footer. All the interior components look big. The cleverest aspect of this layout is the way the head and aft cabin have been positioned so that there is comfortable access to the aft cabin with its huge berth. If I had a criticism it would be that there are lots of shelves for books and plants in the main cabin but few real lockers. The galley looks well laid out, and with the forward leg splayed out slightly, it optimizes egress. Two couples could be very comfortable on this boat. I would guess that this model will become a very popular charter boat.
The rig is simple. The mast shows fore and aft lowers. The mainsheet is a midboom type and way too far forward for my eye. But that's a function of the cockpit length and companionway location. I'd prefer to see the traveler in the cockpit, but I know I would seldom win that argument. Certainly a good mechanical vang makes a midboom mainsheet more acceptable. The SA/D of this design is 16.55, right in the middle of the scale for this type of boat.
Aesthetically I give the Catalina designers high marks. This is a very good-looking boat. A few caveats: I would have preferred to see the detailing around the transom-to-deck transition area more defined and less in the French style. I think the nicely chiseled lines of the cabintrunk would have looked better if combined with a more defined stern. I bet the hull-to-deck joint follows the edge of the transom, i.e. the transom is an integral part of the deck rather than the hull molding, and that detail resulted in this transom styling.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Catalina 320 is an exciting design that successfully combines the best modern features and construction with Catalina's hallmark comfort and value. Based on a high-performance and high-volume computer-optimized hull design, the 320 is light on the helm and tracks well under sail or power. Motion and heeling are gentle and predictable. The 320 performs well in a variety of conditions, with either the available wing or fin keels. Racing skippers will enjoy the turn of speed and cruisers will appreciate the additional distance covered in a day's passage. Carrying the deck beam well aft created space for an exceptionally large cockpit. The wide coamings and ergonomically correct seats and backs are important features, considering the cockpit is where we all spend the most time when aboard. The weather decks are wide with molded-in non-skid and bulwarks, giving easy, sure access to the foredeck and standard below deck electric anchor windlass. Other important quality features of the deck include the stout aluminum framed opening deck hatches and ball bearing mainsheet traveler system. The rigging and spar systems are engineered for performance and durability. The fore and aft lowers with intermediate and upper shrouds make the rig very secure and easy to keep in tune. A rigid adjustable boom vang is standard. The unique interior is beautifully finished in a rich combination of teak, ash and maple hardwoods, complementing the beige textured fiberglass overhead and full hull liner. Attention to details like the custom molded galley counters with integral backsplashes, three separate lighting circuits in the main cabin, removable panels in the forward bulkhead, and a cedar paneled hanging locker set the 320 apart from the ordinary. The one-piece, integral molded fiberglass subsole grid system is rigid, strong and requires no maintenance.
