Re: Catalina 400 MKII draft
I ended up getting hull #206 and just loved it. Don't think there is a faster, sturdier, more comfortable cruiser in her size. Though after having her over 3 years, I now have her for sale as I'm looking to increase boat size. Speed doesn't matter as much to me anymore as a few other things. That being said, I made a tight pinch from Havana to Key West last year in 30+ knot winds and sailed the whole way. Double reefed the main, and rolled in the furling (upgraded to North sails). Had the current with me with the wind against me. Made for LARGE waves. Cockpit was still dry. Very few other boats could have made that journey under sail and dry. Good luck with your purchase.
