A truly fresh approach for today's sailor, the sophisticated Catalina 445 incorporates crisp, contemporary styling with proportions and features that make Catalinas comfortable and secure underway and on the hook.
Based on a new hull design with a long waterline and moderate beam and freeboard, the 445 delivers excellent performance in a wide range of conditions. The hull form is optimized to provide the gentle, predictable motion underway, which is so appreciated in other Catalina models.
The deck is strikingly handsome with a low profile cabin structure, twin helm stations and a roomy cockpit with tall, secure, comfortable coamings and a cockpit table that seats 4-6. The deck is finished with a traditional diamond=patterned non-skid, providing secure footing and easy maintenance.
The accommodations are designed for live-aboard comfort. The owner's cabin is forward for privacy and optimum ventilation. Private head access from the forward cabin, along with an electric head and separate shower complete the forward cabin arrangement. The guest cabin is aft with a large comfortable double berth, angled for easy access and greater headroom.
This new design incorporates an innovative cabin on the port side. It is a flexible space that can easily be converted to whatever your cruising style dictates at the time- sleeping quarters, storage, or a work room with a bench. The galley is full optimized for practical, cook-friendly convenience and comfort while underway at sea.
The interior cabinetry is constructed of teak and teak veneers, hand finished with durable clear varnishes, highlighting the natural beauty of fine woods.
All systems are engineered for accessibility and reliability, following the applicable recommendations and standards of ABYC and IMCI.
Unique among production boats, the 445 is built with a one-piece structural sub-sole grid, hand-laminated in a separate mold and bonded to the hull for long term durability, strength and stiffness without excess weight. Wood is never used in the structural system because it is subject to rot and deterioration.
The Catalina 445's fin or wing keel is cast lead for safety, superior performance and stability. Unlike cast iron keels, it will not rust or require elaborate maintenance.
