Maybe you want to recapture the pure joy of sailing in a simpler but stylish boat that doesn’t require much effort or crew to get you out on the water…

Maybe you no longer need the amenities or complications of a larger boat just to enjoy an afternoon out on the water with a few friends…

Maybe a pretty and fast boat will just be more fun to own!

The Catalina 275 Sport is the 5 Series’ newest design from Catalina. It reflects what many sailors have told us – they no longer need that big boat, but don’t want to give up racing or day sailing. They are spending fewer nights aboard, but still want the ability to overnight, even if it’s an occasional trip with kids or grandkids.

The 275 Sport was designed to meet these desires and exceed expectations. We started with a modern, long waterline, and kept the beam modest to allow trailering.

The handsome hull is coupled with a powerful rig with large main and selftacking jib, which makes the 275 not only fast, but also super-easy to sail.

The cockpit is what the 275 is all about. The helmsman will become reacquainted with the simple pleasure of steering a well-balanced responsive boat with a tiller from the comfortable, ergonomically designed outboard coamings.

Accommodations below are adequate for weekending or just getting out of the weather, and an enclosed head is always appreciated, even on day sails.
