Founded in 1969 by Frank Butler Catalina Yachts has grown to become one of the global powerhouses of mass production yacht building with over 60,000 yachts produced to date. Introduced in 1984 the Catalina 34MkI quickly gained a reputation for providing a rewarding sailing experience combined with comfortable and spacious accommodation below deck. After more than decade in production the Catalina 34 MkII was launched, listening to the feedback of Catalina owners and modernising the design. The MkII features a revised cockpit layout with walk-thru transom and G&T seats. The mainsheet has been moved out of the cockpit to become a mid-boom system freeing up living space in the cockpit. Below decks the finish has been refined and layout tweaked to provide comfortable accommodation for upto 7.
A rare find in the UK market AILSA is a nicely presented, two owner example of the class. With her owner reluctantly retiring from sailing she is offered with a comprehensive inventory with includes:
A cost-effective, spacious 34’ cruiser the Catalina 34 MkII is a highly capable cruising yacht, offering accommodation comparable with larger yachts. Wintering ashore, AILSA is available for virtual viewings during lockdown.
