The Closer You Look

Catalina's philosophy is straightforward: Design boats that stand up to real world conditions and sail well. They must be comfortable above and below, easy to maintain and hold their value.

Understanding Needs and Dreams

Catalina listens to active owners and sailors to build boats that reflect the collective wisdom and experience of thousands of cruises and sea miles. Catalina's design is evolutionary, building on the success of previous models by incorporating many favorite, proven features.

Catalina builds honest, sturdy boats that hold up in the real world. This means more sailing pleasure, less maintenance and excellent resale value for owners.

It All Started With A Vision

Frank Butler had a vision for a 22-foot trailerable that would give a new type of sailor access to distant waters.  

Butler created Catalina Yachts and in 1970 introduced the swing-keel Catalina 22.  

And the rest, as they say, is history.

Catalina Yacht Store

The Catalina Yachts Store was established in 2002 with the vision of providing quality custom apparel and great customer service. This has grown into offering specialized accessories and leading industry hardware.
