Avalon – Catalina 30


The accommodation plan of AVALON a Catalina 30 sailboat cruiser charter has been so popular that even though it is one of the easiest modifications for a builder to accomplish, the layout has remained unchanged for the first 25 years. The V-berth cabin forward is followed by a port side head and shower and starboard side-hanging locker. Further aft the main saloon has an L-shaped dinette to port and settee to starboard followed by a good sized galley to port and navigation station to starboard. There is a starboard side quarter berth which is plenty wide for two people.  The companionway opening is exceptionally wide which, when open, makes the cabin appear even bigger than it is.

Considered perhaps to be one of the most successful sailboats ever conceived, the Catalina 30 has become one of the most popular family cruisers with a long history of satisfied owners.  The design offers all of the essential elements necessary for satisfying cruising.  The layout is comfortable and spacious for her size and the boat is easy to handle, even short handed.
