Featured Boat

36' Catalina 36 MkII
1995 US$ 58,900

July 2015: bottom painted, prop polished, topsides waxed, engine serviced, and a rigging inspection done. 

This is a remarkable Catalina 36 that needs nothing. It is a cruising boat that can be handled and enjoyed by a couple, or a couple with small children. Coy Mistress has been upgraded and maintained to the standards of an exacting owner. It is one of the best examples of this popular boat available.

The owner is a data security professional and experienced sailor who has used the boat both for local cruising and as a second office. This is his second Catalina 36: he has outfitted it to fulfill the potential of this design.

This vessel features tall rig and shoal draft wing keel for enjoyable cruising.  Every system on this boat has been evaluated and upgraded.  The boat has been carefully equipped with advanced electronics so that its owner can run his business in comfort while aboard.  Since November 2014 alone, over $5,000 has been spent on maintenance and upgrades, not including the electronics package.

The boat has a 135% genoa with roller furling, and the slab-reefing main with lazy jacks.  All sail-handling equipment is located in the cockpit. The boat is set up to be sailed single-handed or by a couple. 

Topside, a full dodger, bimini, and connector panel provide complete cockpit shade and allow the companionway to be open in most weather while at anchor.  This feature greatly improves livability in the tropics. Screens are provided for all ports and the companionway. The bimini framework was designed with additional rails to serve as mount points for solar panels. The boat has a low-maintenance exterior: the only teak is the set of companionway drop boards. These boards are quality teak, revarnished/rebuilt in November 2014, and protected by custom canvas covers.

At the helm is a Raymarine 9" e-series chartplotter, interfaced with the rest of the electronics: VHF radio, depth sounder, and (new) wind instrument. Instead of the more usual e7 display, the owner opted for the improved readability of the larger display. 

A feature of this technology is the ability to view and control the chartplotter from your smartphone or tablet (either Apple or Android). A Samsung Android tablet provides a second nav capability at the nav station below, or you can use your own device. While sailing, your guests can view progress on their own smartphones.

The boat has WiFi and television antennas on the mast. The WiFi antenna feeds a Ubiquiti signal amplifier and Netgear wireless router. The installation was professionally done by Seacoast Marine Electronics, an authorized Raymarine and Ubiquiti dealer. The owner's design goal was to provide a secure but easy to use WiFi network for business use and for entertainment. In the evening you can enjoy streaming video (e.g., Netflix, Hulu, etc) in the comfortable cabin.

Below, the airy and well ventilated interior is finished in light teak. The teak has been revarnished and looks great.  There is HDTV, good lighting, complete galley with propane range and microwave, and two private sleeping cabins. The head compartment is large and well-ventilated.  There is abundant storage throughout the boat.

This boat has benefited from careful and consistent maintenance, following the factory's maintenance schedule. "Coy Mistress" has been maintained by the same company, L&M Marine, since 2006. It has had a bi monthly bottom/prop cleaning by the same dive company since 2006.

The engine has fewer than 1200 hours. It has just (July 2015) had a new impeller and the heat exchanger boiled out. On its 2 hour trial run under power from the dockyard, the boat moved at hull speed at a comfortable 2200 RPM. On a day with temperatures in the mid-90s, the engine temp ran a consistent 150 degrees.

The boat has had only three owners, all local.

The Catalina 36 is one of the most successful mid-size cruisers ever designed, with over 2000 boats produced over 20 years. The current owner is an active member of the Catalina 36 owner's association, the US Power Squadron, and is a sailor with many years of experience, as well as a data security professional. The purchaser of this vessel will buy a boat that fulfills the potential of this design to be a comfortable, safe, and capable cruising boat.
