1999 Catalina 470

Honolulu HI, US






Like a well-built house, a good cruising yacht must succeed on several levels. These include having the ability and stability to weather a big blow, being slippery enough to make headway in a fickle wind, and having the all-important home-away-from-home accommodation.

Along the way, things such as engineering, serviceability, and user-friendliness each play a role.

As for user-friendliness, two people can easily sail the Catalina 470.

All lines lead back along the cabin top through Lewmar clutches to the cockpit. There is an electric winch for the main halyard, and a Dutchman reefing system that self-flakes the full-battened main.

A passagemaker with almost as much space as a cruising catamaran; user-friendly handling with surprisingly lively performance.
An owner’s boat, the 470’s interior is the best yet from America’s most frenetic production-yacht builder.

The challenges of extended offshore cruising have been met with a display of strength, innovative design, and engineering that clearly define the Catalina 470. A unique, structural fiberglass grid is bonded to the hull and provides both strength for the hull and a massive foundation for securing bulkheads, equipment, engine, and tanks. Below there is a new standard of functionality and comfort. The galley is remarkable in its amount of cold, consumables, and equipment space. The generous deck beam is carried well aft providing for an expansive cockpit with twin steering stations and large master stateroom below. The luxurious main salon boasts adjustable arm chairs and deep banquet seating available in soft, durable Ultraleather. The nav station contains all necessary readouts, as well as a swivel TV. For easy maintenance, centrally located equipment clusters offer easy access to all pumps, valves, and filters. A washer - dryer combination is sensibly located in the shower area of the forward head. At every turn, equipment and systems have been engineered to the most demanding bluewater specifications: the first ever articulated traveler rotates fore and aft, spreading the load evenly over bearing surfaces for smoother main sheet handling and more precise trimming. Custom cheek blocks and raised genoa tracks guide sheets straight aft to large, powerful winches. Moreover, a powerful, double spreader rig and generous sail plan are balanced to deliver a remarkable combination of high performance and ease of handling.
