The Atlantic City 24' CATBOAT is a recreation of one of the most famous East Coast cruising catboat designs. She is a gutsy high-performer for the experienced sailor as well as an easy handling pussycat for the novice.
Because of her wide beam and cat rig sail, she provides interior and cockpit accommodations usually found only on 30' - 35' boats. Only 24' overall, the Atlantic City Catboat has 6'2" headroom, full galley, a dinette, berths for six and even a stand-up head.
No need to have a full crew aboard to sail her, because you never have to leave the safety and comfort of the cockpit to raise, lower or trim sail. Truly a single-handler's dream. If a crowd does show up, and they probably will, there is room for all. The cockpit alone can easily accommodate 10 people.
Drawing only 2' of water with the the center-board up she can go almost anywhere. The original standard BMW 12 hp Diesel was replaced in 1997 with a new Yanmar 2GM 18hp diesel.
Built by a handful of craftsmen from southern New Jersey, these second and third generation boat builders can trace their ancestry back to the golden days of catboat building in Atlantic City where pleasure and work-boat cats were built to 40'. The 24' version of these boats follows the same tradition; heavy hull, vert stable working platform that happens to sail extremely well. Built with old fashioned quality using 1980's hi-technology (for the time) produced the 24'Atlantic City Cat. A truly fun boat to enjoy solo or with family and friends.
