Newly listed fresh water 426 Catalina. Modern Updates to her interior, she is ready for her new owner. The Power Boat Guide had this to say;
The Chris 426 Catalina began life in 1971 as the Uniflite 42 Double Cabin. She turned out to be one of Uniflite’s most popular boats and earned a reputation for sturdy construction and a practical, well-arranged interior. In 1984, Uniflite ceased operations when the company went bankrupt. Chris Craft bought the molds (as well as the old Uniflite production facility in Bellingham, WA) and resumed production of this model the following year, calling her the Chris 426 Catalina Double Cabin. While she looked exactly like the old Uniflite from the outside, the Catalina had a fresh interior layout with walkaround queen berths fore and aft—something the Uniflite 42 never had during her production years. In 1986 she was called the 426 Catalina and benefited from a restyled and enlarged flybridge. With standard 350hp Crusader gas engines, the cruising speed of the Catalina is 17–18 knots (mid 20s wide open).
