Catalina 310

Catalina has designed and built some of the most successful coastal cruisers in history, including the C-22, 25, 27 and 30, and they developed their market without any advertising whatsoever. They trusted that if they offered a product that was a good value, then people would hear about it by word of mouth, from other owners. Using that philosophy, they sold huge numbers of boats. Characteristically, they sail as well as, or better than, similarly sized coastal cruisers. They offer spacious, comfortable interiors, and they represent a good value. If you see a lot of Catalinas on the market, it is because they have built so many boats, and because the boats have performed and held up well.

Catalina has, for many years, enjoyed extraordinary owner loyalty, notwithstanding the anecdotal opinions of a few people on warranty issues.
