1997 Catalina 36 MK II
The Catalina 36 is easily handled by one or a couple. The 36 MK II has a big comfortable cockpit, a spacious interior with two private cabins and the integrity to pursue cruising dreams, many experienced sailors consider the Catalina 36 MK II the perfect boat for their sailing lifestyle. The Catalina 36 MK II has all the important characteristics that made the original the most popular thirty-six foot sailboat in the world. The Catalina 36 MK II is built in the same sea-kindly moderate displacement hull that tracks surely and performs well in a variety of conditions. The deck is the classic trunk cabin configuration designed by sailors, not stylists, so it's proven, comfortable and functional. The 36 MK II is the evolution of this successful design and incorporates the refinement that is possible only after building over 1,700 36's and listening carefully to owners comments and suggestions. The new interior has an aft cabin with a large athwart ship double berth, hanging locker and bureau. The owner's cabin forward is comfortable and well ventilated and has a private entrance to the head. Cruisers love storage space and the Catalina 36 MK II is renowned for it. There are ample drawers, lockers and bins for all your cruising provisions and gear. The galley and main cabin have received special attention to design and detail. The galley is a functional U-Shape, with solid surface counter top, double sinks are near centerline for proper drainage underway. A large refrigerated ice box is aft and a dry food locker is forward. A gimbaled, stainless steel propane stove with oven is standard equipment.
All interior finishes and fabrics have been selected for quality, appearance and durability. An important but often unconsidered aspect of boat ownership is maintenance. The 36 MK II has stainless steel hand rails and anodized spars, reducing maintenance on deck and extending your sailing season. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems have been re-engineered to increase dependability and accessibility. Engine access is excellent, with the one piece insulated enclosure removed. Aft of the engine a mechanical compartment contains the engine valves and filters. This makes maintenance and service easier. The structural system and construction of the Catalina 36 is proven and straightforward. The hull structure is rugged, hand laminated solid fiberglass while the keel is lead with integrally cast stainless steel bolts. The mast is stepped through the deck on the keel and has inline spreaders and fore and aft lower shrouds allowing for a sturdy arrangement that is easy to tune. Board a Catalina 36 MK II, inspect her thoroughly and discover why the 36 MK II is an excellent choice.
Access the deck of the MK II through either the port or starboard boarding gates. The wide side decks make maneuvering easy. The cockpit is large with long port and starboard settees with cushions. The aft cockpit has cushioned seating with excellent visibility. There are also stern rail seats with cushions. There are two large storage lazarettes under the aft seats and one under the port side settee. The helm is nicely arranged with all instruments and engine controls easily reached. Lift the helm seat and the transom becomes walk-thru. All lines can be neatly stored in the forward cockpit.
The cockpit is covered with Dark Blue Sunbrella bimini, connector and dodger. There is a Navy blue Sunbrella helm cover and matching covers for all deck hatches, sail cover and winches.
Access into the main cabin is through the companionway with boards. Down a few steps you enter the main cabin. Immediately to port is the U-Shaped galley. The galley is large and offers excellent storage, double stainless steel sinks, and countertops with fiddles and a non-skid floor. The sinks face forward and offer the onboard chef easy conversation with salon guests. The engine compartment is under the steps. To starboard is the entry into the aft cabin. The aft cabin is a large cabin with teak and holly flooring, ample storage in hanging lockers, drawers and cabinets, padded headboard and a large athwart ship berth (mattress had been removed). Ventilation is excellent with side ports. There is a small white acrylic sliding door that provides access into the galley. An excellent way to get your morning coffee from the onboard chef. Back to the main cabin and forward of the aft cabin entry is the navigation station with flip up desk for charts or used as an onboard office. The electrical panel is outboard of the navigation table.
Along the starboard side of the main salon is an L-Shaped ultra-leather settee. Outboard of the settee are two cabinets with louvered doors and a built in bookshelf. The dinette table is stored against the forward bulkhead and can be used as a table or as the base to convert the settee into a double berth. Along the port side are two seats with a game table in between. The table can be used as a base to convert the area into another settee or used to convert the area into a single berth. Outboard are two storage cabinets with louvered doors and a built in bookcase. Further forward and to port is the entertainment center with several storage drawers. A flat screen TV is mounted on the forward port bulkhead.
To starboard and across from the entertainment center is access into the head. The head is large and features a mirrored vanity with storage behind the sliding mirrors, countertops with a molded sink and stainless steel faucet, a manual toilet and ample cabinets for storage. There is a private door into the head from the forward stateroom. The forward stateroom offers a large “V” berth with a custom innerspring mattress. Under the berth are storage cabinets and drawers. Outboard are storage shelves with fiddles and along the port side aft is a large hanging locker and additional cabinets for storage. Ventilation is excellent with an overhead hatch and ports.
