The Catalina 42 has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. Design, cruising performance, and comfort, all make the Catalina 42 the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull of the 42 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.

What Reviews Say:

It's a handsome boat. The bow is raked just enough to give it a clean entry and still maintain a relatively long LWL of 36 feet. There is enough of a forefoot to keep the bow from pounding, at least most of the time. The hull flares quickly but the wide, 13-foot, 10-inch beam is nicely absorbed into the overall flow of the boat. The beam is carried well aft, providing space for double aft cabins and a roomy cockpit, yet it doesn't seem excessive like many of today's boats.

The 42 is rigged as a sloop with slightly swept-back double spreaders. The working sail area is just under 800 square feet. The design displacement is 18,000 pounds, translating into a respectable SA/D of 18.5. The 42 came with two keel arrangements: shoal draft wing and fin. We prefer the 6' fin keel version because it tracks better.

The hull is solid fiberglass, reinforced with a molded liner that incorporates the cabin sole and furniture facings. Liners are an efficient way to build a boat, and when done well, they provide more than adequate structural support. The deck is cored with balsa except in areas that support hardware where one-half inch plywood is used instead. This isn't the best method of backing up hardware. The hull and deck are joined on a flange and includes stainless steel fasteners and 3M 5200. Catalina has always used lead ballast. The interior finish work is nicely executed.
