Regent Point Yacht Sales
Extremely well-equipped comfortable island cruiser with just a 4' 10'' draft, yet heavy displacement to stand up to strong wind and seas. Fully outfitted, ready to take you cruising!
Two versions of the Catalina 42 have been built, each in a two-or three-stateroom configuration. The Mark I (hulls #1-477) were produced until February 1995, when the Mark II, which is still in production, was introduced. More than 670 have been built, evenly divided between the two-stateroom and three-stateroom models.
Catalina MK I - 1989-1995: 477 vessels were completed and Why Not is hull #432. Why Not is a two-stateroom layout with the Pullman Style Double Berth in the Owner's Stateroom.
Aside from changing to a more European style rounded stern, the primary difference between the MK I and MK II is the size and arrangement of the cockpits. The MK I has a larger unobstructed cockpit which tends to be a bit more practical for sailing.
Just about everything else—the hull, deck, accessories, auxiliary engine and standing rigging—are virtually identical in both the MK 1 and MK 11.
"WHY NOT" is currently in a wetslip in Annapolis for a very limited time and will be available for showings during the upcoming Annapolis Sailboat Show Oct 14-Oct 17. Following the show, we are planning to relocate the vessel to the Deltaville, VA region of the lower Chesapeake Bay. If you are planning to attend the upcoming boat show in Annapolis and would like to arrange a time to see this listing, please call or email to make arrangements.
