Manufacturer Provided Description

The Catalina 42 has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. By leading in design, cruising performance, and comfort, the Catalina 42 has become the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull of the 42 MkII is high volume, and easily driven, with a fine entry, firm midship section, and smooth run aft terminating in a modified reverse transom with an uncommonly spacious and functional boarding platform. A long, horizontal skeg runs aft between the fin or wing keel and the rudder for sure tracking. The rudder is large and balanced, ensuring control in all conditions. The Catalina 42 MkII deck was designed with shorthanded sailing in mind. All the halyards, the mainsheet and the single line main reefing controls are led to the cockpit, and placed to be operated from under the dodger when necessary. The wide weather decks and inboard shroud base make passage forward easy and secure. The bow roller and below deck electric windlass greatly simplify anchor handling. Both the two and three cabin arrangements feature varnished teak joinery and ash side paneling on the hull. Excellent light and ventilation are provided naturally from aluminum-framed opening hatches and ports. Numerous recessed halogen lights offer an inviting ambiance.


ALMOST HEAVAN has a welcoming cockpit with ample seating for owners and friends alike.  The companionway is wide and allows easy entry to the main salon.  Upon entering you will find an open airy space with a large U-shaped port-side settee and bench seat around the dinette table.  Overhead hatches and opening ports provide good ventilation and light throughout.  Just aft of the port settee is the nav station.  Across from the dinette  is the galley running along the starboard side of the salon and features ample counter space for food preparation, refrigeration, microwave, three-burner LP stove/oven and double stainless steel sink.

Moving forward is the owner's stateroom with pullman berth to port and good storage and hanging locker to starboard.  Continuing forward is the master head with electric toilet, molded vanity and separate walk-in shower forward.

Moving aft the second head is located just aft of the galley with molded vanity and electric toilet.  There are private double cabins to port and starboard of the companionway each with opening port, overhead hatch and hanging locker.
