About this Sailboat:
The SHOOTING STAR is a lightly used and nicely equipped three stateroom, two head Catalina 42. Electronics include an almost new Raymarine C-90W GPS/Chartplotter/Radar, B&G instrumentation and autopilot. It even sports a dive compressor and watermaker. This is the lowest price Catalina 42 in California!
The Catalina 42 was first introduced in 1988 and is a simple yet sturdy boat. What you get is good quality because the structure is there. If you want to make it more elaborate, you can easily take it as far as you want to go! The hull was adapted from an earlier racing hull designed by Nelson Merek. Catalina Yachts then added a new cabin top, interior, and rig in order to make it a comfortable coastal cruising boat which two people can easily handle. The spacious design is also comfortable for a large crew on a long trip. With a race-bred hull and a substantial rig, the boat is stiff and capable of upwind speeds approaching 8 knots, expect downwind speeds up to 15 knots. She has a PHRF handicap rating of 102/108 (Southern California). But as the sun sets over your favorite hideaway anchorage, there is little argument that the Catalina 42 is hard to match.
