2011 Boat of the Year - Twice!

Catalina 355

The qualities admired in Catalina’s award-winning 445—versatile, fast, comfortable spacious and safe—formed the basis of the newest model in the Catalina fleet. Presenting the all-new Catalina 355, a new hull design with a long waterline, moderate beam and freeboard, and a handsome low-profile cabin structure.

Everywhere you look on the 355, you’ll find features that make sailing for the day or for extended periods a pure pleasure. Precise mainsail control is a snap with a 5′ long traveler. Long, inboard genoa tracks accommodate headsails from a powerful 155% genoa to a storm jib, allowing a balanced sail plan for all wind conditions. The inboard shrouds and hardware facilitates tighter sheeting angles for upwind performance, and wide, unobstructed weather decks for safety.

Some features inspired by her predecessor are an articulating forward berth with innerspring mattress, a dedicated filter locker, large cockpit locker with gull wing hatch and available quad-leaf folding table.

The 355 is fast and comfortable with qualities proven in its pedigree that are sure to win you over.
