Designed over 44 years ago (1974), the traditionally styled Catalina 30 remains extremely popular with cruisers, due to its wide and deep hull creating exceptional volume above and below decks and for its stability under sail.  It offers more space than a typical 34' boat. There are seven full adult berths, 6' 4" headroom and large storage areas under the settees, v-berth, quarter-berth and in the three cockpit lockers.

There is a large anchor locker in the forepeak. With a huge companionway hatch and large forward hatch, the boat is well ventilated and bright inside and has remained remarkably appealing through the years. The deckhouse, windows and sheer line still define the Catalina 30 as the most popular 30 foot sailboat ever built.
