Owner remarks: "ENSENEL is a fast and stable vessel, which my wife and I were more than comfortable taking offshore. Her cruising grounds were from Maine to the Bahamas, and her mast height of 56 ft made the bridges on the ICW. passible. Her wing keel and shallow 4”8” draft made it possible to do worry-free trips through the Georgia ICW, the Bahamas and Florida Keys. With her new Dometic slow start AC/Heat, and a portable 2400 watt gasoline generator and propane heater, she is at home at the dock or at anchor, in both chilly New England waters as well as the Tropics. With 415 watts of solar power, and a small water-maker she is able to be operated off the grid for extended periods."
Broker remarks: It is a pleasure to represent a vessel in such prime condition and has obvious care from knowledgeable owners. She can be yours next!
The boat was launched in 2013, however, due to a lightning strike in early 2021, virtually all of the electronics and electrics are new and currently under warranty.
Entering the interior, one finds the familiar and practical layout with more room than many 39 footers.
The forward cabin features a center line double, with drawers below, and lockers above and aft of the berth. There is a seat to port with a small vanity table and lit makeup mirror. A private entrance to the head. Two opening ports and an overhead hatch (with solar ventilator) provide both light and ventilation. The berth has a true mattress rather than a foam cushion. Electric bed lift provides comfortable sitting up and reading in bed.
The head is next aft to port. This can be entered directly from the salon or from the forward cabin. There is ample storage, and a separate shower area (with a curtain and sump), and a lovely vanity with a raised glass bowl sink. The toilet is electric. Heavy duty towel racks serve as safety hand holds in rough weather. An opening port and an overhead hatch provide light and solar electric ventilation. Next to the head compartment is a hanging locker.
For ventilation, there are two large cabin top hatches and an additional solar electric vent. Teak grills have been installed in the cabin doors, head, under the galley sink and in the hanging locker to allow air circulation throughout the boat, and the cabin top hatches are equipped with Oceanair integrated shade/screens. Ventilation at anchor is facilitated by five Hella two-speed electric fans located throughout. A removable wind scoop on the forward hatch combined with a nylon shade which can cover the bow, makes for cool anchoring. The companionway opening can also be screened.
The salon features port and starboard settee, with the port settee forming an L shape. The teak table has a flexible leaf system which can expand its size from a small cocktail table to a dinner table. There is also a teak table leaf which allows seating for six in the main cabin. A folding bench seat is stored in the stern cabin, its cushioned top serving as a back rest in the aft cabin. There is also an ottoman with storage for extra seating. A rich and cozy feeling is provided by the handmade oriental rug and original art. There is a flat panel TV/DVD on an articulated mount attached to the aft cabin bulkhead and a marine AM/FM radio sound system which services both the cabin and cockpit independently. Storage is provided above, below and behind the settees. At the aft end of the port settee is the Nav station, and the adjacent electrical control panels. The overhead hatch and multiple fixed and opening ports provide light and ventilation. There are also two fixed hull ports. All cushions in the salon are covered in Blue Ultraleather. The galley is aft to starboard.
The private aft cabin is to port, with a large double berth, a seat, and storage lockers. There is access to the rear of the engine in this cabin. There is a large hatch which opens into the cockpit making it easy for partners to communicate underway and an opening port for ventilation.
The wood finishes are teak and teak veneers with satin varnish. The cabin sole is teak and holly laminate.
The galley is aft to starboard. and features:
Lead keels, long travelers for precise sail control, and lengthy inboard genoa tracks so the sail plan is balanced in all wind conditions are just a few of the many design features that sets the Catalina 385 apart from other yachts.
More unique features include a watertight StrikeZone™ collision bulkhead aft of the anchor locker. A backstay system creates an impressive cockpit for the avid sailor, and Catalina’s unique SecureSocket™ chain plates mast support system affords superior load resolution.
The 385’s moderate beam is carried well aft for a spacious cockpit; modest freeboard reduces windage and a beautiful hand-finished teak interior brings it all home with classic warmth and styling that has been a trademark of Catalina for 41 years.
