PRICE REDUCED!! - This is an EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY for you to own a meticulously maintained and very well-equipped Catalina 470 - the Flagship of the Catalina Fleet. Introduced in 1998 and designed by Gerry Douglas, the Catalina 470 is built for comfort as well as offshore capability. "Ruthless," has been equipped with all the amenities one would hope to expect on a boat on the Gulf Coast: Three Air Conditioning units, Generator, an impressive Sail Inventory for a variety of conditions, retractable whisker pole with mast mount, Bimini with full strato glass enclosure and bug net, and MaxProp feathering prop, to name a few of the highlights. She has also been very well maintained and upgraded as one would hope they could find when looking for that ideal used boat: low hours on the Genset, standing rigging replaced in 2013, Furuno Nav Electronics, AIS, Sirius Weather, SSB, laptop networked, and even the engine infectors cleaned and replaced in recent years.
Lots of waterline length with this, one of the earlier cruising designs leaning toward the plumb bow and trailing scoop stern. The laminate is heavy and the keel is lead - built to last and sail well in all conditions. Yet, as heavily and well built as this boat is for safe and capable passage-making, she is loaded with comforts for the local cruiser and weekender home-on-the-water.
A two-cabin, two head layout combines comfort and practical use. The forward suite has a private head and includes washer/dryer unit with the berth and lots of storage. The aft cabin has private access to the aft head with pass through. A full centerline aft berth compliments the storage, space, and comfort of this aft owners cabin.
Excellent Galley, forward facing Nav station, and plenty of seating and space through the main salon adds to the enjoyment and uses for this Flagship model that could be yours.

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 in soft, durable Ultraleather. The nav station contains all necessary readouts. 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.
