Boat Description

The Catalina 380 was the winner of the Mid-Size Cruiser category in Cruising Worlds 1997 Boat of the Year Awards.

Competent and thoughtfully designed midsize cruiser

The routine SouthernCalifornia day-bright sunshine, light wind from the west and a slight nip in the air-provided the perfect conditions to test sail the latest addition to Catalinas line. The Catalina 380 fills a gap between its 36- and 40-foot designs and is aimed at experienced sailors anxious to trade up in size, perhaps with a longer cruise in mind, or when a growing family calls for more ambitious plans.

Catalinas new 38-footer follows the successful design trends pioneered in the 320 and 400: minimal overhangs, elliptical keel, large cockpit and substantial beam carried aft to a reversed stern. An owner can choose a shallow-draft wing keel or a fin configuration without extra charge. Like her close relatives, the new design has a double-spreader rig with an inboard shroud base, allowing for narrow sheeting angles and large genoas. Shes a striking yacht with high topsides and careful use of sheerlines to give a sense of grace and speed. At the same time she imparts a sense of profound competence, an indefinable quality born of careful design which some yachts exude the moment you step aboard. I felt at home, partly because of Catalinas proven design formula and also because the length and size of the boat appealed to me.

The Catalina 380 is an exceptionally refined production yacht with the high standard of finish and design one has come to expect from this manufacturer. She offers exceptional value to owners looking for a larger boat less than 40 feet, and who have relatively ambitious cruising plans in mind.
