Saarine is a 1985 Catalina cruiser that spent most of her time in the fresh waters of the Great Lakes. With almost 3,000 boats sold, the Catalina 36’ is the most popular sailboat of this size…for a reason! This is a strong and able family cruiser with a sea-kindly moderate displacement hull. It tracks beautifully and performs well in a variety of conditions.
Easily singlehanded, all trim lines and halyards lead aft to the spacious and secure cockpit with pedestal steering. Saarine comes with Sunbrella sail cover, cockpit cushions, dodger and bimini for maximum comfort and shade. The side decks are easy to maneuver on fore and aft and the foredeck is roomy and well laid-out for sail handling or relaxing under way.
The 25 HP Universal Diesel Engine, with 2,010 hours, is easily accessed by removing the companionway steps and engine cover for performing maintenance. The engine starts and runs great!
Sails included are main, genoa and asymmetrical.
