2006 Catalina 34 MarkII, Tampa Florida
« on: December 01, 2012, 05:54:47 AM »

Cleanest 2006 Catalina 34 in the world, period.  Stored on the hard for 4 and a half years, 7 months in fresh water, 1 year in salt water.  Never chartered, never lived aboard, private owner, very little use.  Must see, truly like new, smells like new, save $100,000 over a new equally equipped Catalina 355.  Truly loaded, turn key, ready for extended coastal cruising.  Love this boat moving into our next Catalina!

Since 1986 Catalina has built a well deserved reputation as a classic blend of performance, comfort and value.  This yacht, built in June 2006, spent only ONE season sailing on fresh water Lake St. Clair, Michigan in 2007.  Stored and wrapped on a custom cradle for over 4 years.  In 2011 she was delivered to Tampa Florida and was salt water commissioned that October.  The boat has been in salt water 1 year and has been professionally detailed including bi-monthly bottom cleanings.  As such it is in “like new” condition.  Duel air-conditioning systems (installed September 2011) deliver ample cold air (or heat) providing complete comfort during Florida’s hottest summer days and coldest winter nights.  These units also remove harmful humidity when the boat is not in use.  The system was divided into two units (1) to allow either unit to run off a small generator, and (2) to provide redundancy.  The manufacture also discovered that two systems working in tandem results in higher BTU effectiveness.

This yacht is an ideal family cruiser, has great stability and is very easy to sail.  The exterior is fiberglass and stainless steel for easy maintenance.  Only the companionway boards are teak.  The interior is rich in real woods (no longer used by competitors).  The boat features the wing keel, maintenance free solid lead (unlike competitor’s steel keels), and is highly desirable for shallow Tampa waters.  Best of all the boat is made in the USA, all required tools are standard US spec, Catalina definitely caters to the “do it yourself” crowed offering complete access and removal of all components should they require maintenance or replacement (unlike competitors and European builders).

The Catalina 34 Mark II reflects the long production experience of Catalina and their owners.  The long and extensive production run of this series continues to prove the practicality of the masthead rig with fore and aft lowers, forestay and backstay.  The inboard shroud base leaves more room for secure footing on the non-skid deck and provides for narrow sheeting angles and the ability to carry large genoas.  The rigid boom vang and double ended mainsheet system make sail handling easier and more secure. This boat was produced by Catalina to decrease maintenance and increase reliability and comfort underway and at anchor.  Customer support is the best in the industry; tours of the production facility, near Tampa Florida, are offered and encouraged leaving the owner with a solid understanding and appreciation of the vessel’s construction.

This boat has never been chartered or lived aboard and is the definition of “lightly used”. 


The seller offers the details of this vessel in good faith but cannot guarantee or warrant the accuracy of this information nor warrant the condition of the vessel. A buyer should instruct his agents, or his surveyors, to investigate such details as the buyer desires validated. This vessel is offered subject to prior sale, price change, or withdrawal without notice.

New to the list but intrigued by your boat.

We have just sold our boat and are looking for a new one - your boat looks very compatible with our interests.

Is it still available?
