Cruising World’s “1996 Yacht of the Year” (best boat in the small cruiser category). The interior arrangement of the Catalina 28 also has the look and feel of a larger boat and nearly all the standard accommodations of a 35-footer. The arrangement features a V-berth cabin forward, main saloon with port and starboard settees, and centerline drop-leaf table. To the port side of the companionway there is a head with shower. The deck layout of the Catalina 28 clearly has the look of a bigger boat with its T-shaped cockpit, wheel steering, walk-through transom, and stern boarding platform.
This boat has been meticulously maintained by the original owner and is very clean, neat, and reflects the pride of ownership. The Catalina 28 MK II is a great family boat for weekending and day sailing, definitely worth a look.
