About this Sailboat:
1976 CATALINA 27 FRESHWATER sailboat! INBOARD DIESEL ENGINE w/ROLLER FURLER!
The Catalina 27 is an American classic. First launched in 1971, more than 6,600 boats were built during a 20-year production run, making it possibly the best-selling 27-footer of all time. Frank Butler, the 27’s co-designer, as well as the founder and driving force behind Catalina Yachts, has a uncanny knack for creating boats that people love. As a result this model has an extremely large and active owners association-a very valuable resource for any boat owner. In many ways, the 27 was the model for a design and construc¬tion philosophy that continues to serve Catalina today: It’s a spa¬cious, user-friendly family cruiser. It sleeps five with an impressive 61 headroom and a large cabin hatch that, when opened, opens up half the cabin to the sky. It is an ideal boat for the way most of us use our boats, that is daysailing and week¬end outings and promises many years of enjoyment to come!
