Spacious family cruising yacht with desirable shallow draft wing keel with just 3' 8"draft, perfect for exploring local waters!! When the Catalina 28 first introduced in 1991 and the much improved MK II introduced in 1996 they were touted as a "careful blend of innovation and traditional values" and promised to "pass the test of time". All these years later she has proved herself time and time again. "Susie Q" has a great cockpit layout to keep the crew comfortable and details so well thought out you will have to keep reminding yourself that she is only a 28 foot boat with a 10 foot beam. Many refer to her as the "biggest 28' sailboat you'll find." Her below deck spaces consist of a forward private cabin with a V-berth and built-in storage, full-size athwartships double aft berth with opening port, galley w/propane stove/oven, hot and cold water, great storage everywhere and a huge capacity icebox. Her salon has a Nav station to port, port and starboard settees with a folding dining table between the settees, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with bulkhead mounted speakers. Her enclosed head with shower is easily accessible from the cockpit and the cabin. She has a Dodger and Bimini (new 2017), a walk-through transom w/swim platform, hot and cold stern shower, double life-lines with gates at the cockpit, and shore power. Electronics include gin-pole mounted Furuno radar, Apelco 5160 VHF, Autohelm ST4000 autopilot, wind speed and direction indicators and depth finder. Her sail inventory consists of a (new 2017) full batten main with a "Doyle" Stack Pack, (which makes raising and lowering the mainsail extremely simple lowering into the boom-mounted sail cover without any flaking) and a (new 2017) 110 Genoa on a Schafer roller furling system. All lines (new 2017) are lead aft to the cockpit through rope clutches, an above cabin traveler, and she has 2 self-tailing winches on the cabin top and 2 two-speed self-tailing jib sheet winches in the cockpit. She has two Danforth anchors, one permanently mounted on a bow roller for quick launch with chain and rode stowed in separate deck bow locker. She also has new jib sheets and fenders, and a full set of cockpit cushions. Her auxiliary power is an 18 HP FWC Universal diesel with under 1600 hours. Call now for an appointment to see her.
