Catalina Yachts has always known the secret to success in the North American sailboat market: build comfortable boats that sail well, look nice and are affordable.  After expanding its range year after year, in 1989 chief designer Gerry Douglas and company President Frank Butler thought the timing was right to introduce a new 42-foot model.  Not surprisingly, they were right, and 477 of the original Catalina 42s were sold before Douglas updated the design in 1995.  The Catalina 42 was one of the first American production boats to offer three private sleeping cabins.  The 42 is rigged as a sloop with slightly swept-back double spreaders. The working sail area is just under 800 square feet.

The Catalina 42 is a well-built production boat.  The hull is solid fiberglass, reinforced with a molded liner that incorporates the cabin sole and furniture facings.   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.  

On Deck
The Catalina 42 cockpit is spacious and well laid out. The boat is a pleasure to sail and to socialize aboard while dockside, and this is rarely the case. The seats are long enough to stretch out on. The 40-inch wheel is large enough to make steering enjoyable but still easy enough to climb around when going aft to the stern step. The helm seat opens to allow access to the molded stern step.  Two deep lazerettes and two coaming hatches offer plenty of storage.  The 42 was one of the first boats with the stern step feature and it''s nicely incorporated into the lines.  

The 42 was offered with two interior plans, either a two or three cabin arrangement. Both plans feature a large head and shower forward in lieu of a traditional V-berth. This is a much better use of space.   There''s a small head aft for use while sailing. The forward cabin is a Pullman-style berth to port.  The saloon in the popular three-cabin version features a nice L-shaped dinette to port with the galley opposite.  The nav station is aft to port and uses the settee for the seat.  The three-cabin model features two double cabins aft. The cabins are, for the most part, more spacious than similarly styled European boats. Each contains a hanging locker and enough elbowroom to stand up and change clothes.
