Cruising World Magazine’s “Boat of the Year Award”, “Best Full Size Cruiser” and Sail Magazine’s “Best Cruising Monohull Under 50ft”

The Catalina 5 Series yachts were officially launched with the introduction of the Catalina 445 as a 2010 model year yacht. The Catalina 5 Series evolved by taking advantage of many of the proven and robust construction details included with all their larger models from the recent past. However there were many innovations that defined all 5 Series Catalina yachts.

A short list includes:

  • Strike Zone & Watertight collision bulkhead
  • Dedicated 5 th part structural grid
  • Deep Defense rudder system
  • T-Beam mast step system
  • Ball N Socket chain plate system
  • Teak interiors
  • Lead keels
