Catalina Yachts has just launched the all-new Catalina 320 Mark II -- a stylish, new generation mid-sized yacht. The 320 mkII is a prime example of Catalina’s tradition of constantly upgrading and perfecting existing models.
Created from the successful original 320 introduced in 1993 with over 1,000 hulls built, the 320 mkII incorporates contemporary styling, upgraded ergonomics and the latest convenience features while retaining the excellent performance and handling characteristics of the original 320.
Maintaining the sail plan, weight and underbody of the original model preserved the integrity of the class, so one-design 320 racing sailors can compete aboard the newly redesigned model. The 320 mkII model was influenced by over a decade of comments and input from experienced 320 owners.
The 320 mkII is built from all new optimized molds for every fiberglass component. The new deck design features a modern sculptured cabin structure and cockpit. Sail handling is easier with a single side control, ball bearing traveler and improved cabin top control layout.
Cabin comfort is enhanced with a longer v-berth and a forward hanging locker. The galley has custom solid surface counter tops and a front-loading stainless steel refrigerator. A top loading, well-insulated icebox can also be used as a refrigerator. Storage is optimized with additional cabinetry and bins.
In addition, all lighting, ventilation, steering, electrical and plumbing systems were upgraded and fine tuned to create the all-new mkII edition of the popular Catalina 320.
