As soon as you descend the stairway from the companionway, you'll quickly see why this 34' Catalina Sloop model has been so popular and and a trend-setter in its class for several decades. Satin-varnished teak cabinetry and beautiful teak and holley sole add warmth and charm to this spacious salon with a wrap-around dinette to starboard and long settee to port at midships.
This 1987 Catalina 34 Sloop is an excellent example of this model. To Starboard of the companionway is the L-shaped well-equipped Galley and further aft is a solid teak door leading to the Aft Stateroom with a queen berth area, and 3 opening ports providing plenty of light and ventilation when you don't need the A/C running. Current owners use this for storage and buyers will need to add cushions to return this area to a bed.
To Port of the companionway stairs is the spacious Head with solid teak privacy door, standing headroom, a Jabsco Manual Toilet with Y-Valve & holding tank, a vanity with sink, and teak-covered seat in the middle area designated for the shower with a curtain.
Forward of the Head is the Nav Table, with Electrical panels above, battery & Solar panel monitors and controls, as well as the VHF and Stereo Radios. Forward is the full berth-size settee with bookshelf storage above and additional storage under and behind the cushions.
Moving forward past the Dinette is the private solid door leading to the V-Berth which has a book shelf raised above the berth all the way forward, and night tables with storage drawers and cabinets on each side of the berth aft. In 2015 the Custom V-Berth Cushions with Fitted Sheets were redesigned and replaced by Island Nautical with 2 piece V-berth cushions (5” foam plus 2” memory foam) with fitted sheets.
There is an opening Bomar Deck Hatch above the entrance to the V-berth and the entire interior is cooled or heated as necessary by the MarineAir 12,000 BTU System with multiple vents. All lighting in the interior is upgraded to LED, including indirect rope lighting along the perimeter of the salon area.
Conveniently located Aft to Starboard next to the companionway stairs, the well-equipped Galley has an upgraded 12V Refrigeration system, upgraded faucet, and appliances to make the Chef's job a pleasure. The Galley of this Catalina 34 Sloop 1987 features:
