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 cockpit table is large as well - 39” long with two leafs, built in storage and cup holders. A foot brace bar accommodates heavy weather sailing.
