Interior & Accommodations

The salon is open and well ventilated and its 6'4" head room will please the tall sailors.

The teak interior provides a traditional feel of warmth that is missing on many current yachts.

To port is a large L-shaped settee with dining table.  It converts to a large double berth when required.  To starboard are two seats and a game table that convert into a straight settee or an additional single berth.

Aft to starboard is the u-shaped galley with all the expected conveniences including refrigeration and gimbaled oven. Custom sliding panels creates additional enclosed galley storage. 

Over to port is the navigation station and the entrance to the aft cabin.

Forward is the large private head with private doors to both the salon and forward master’s cabin.  It is large enough for comfortable showers and has a ventilation hatch.

The forward master’s cabin has a large double berth and plenty of storage.

Hull & Deck

The Catalina 36' MKII is built on a moderate displacement hull that tracks surely and performs well in a variety of conditions.  This is an evolution of design that incorporates the refinements that are only possible after building over 2,000 36's and listening carefully to owner's comments and suggestions.

The cockpit is large and comfortable.  Elevated stern seats are always popular under sail and at anchor and the removable helm seat provides easy access to the swim platform. Control lines are lead to the cockpit for shorthanded ease and access to the uncluttered foredeck is safe and convenient.

Manufacturer Provided Description

Because the Catalina 36 is easily handled by a couple, 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 the perfect boat for their sailing lifestyle. The Catalina 36 MkII has all the important characteristics that made the original the most popular 36-foot sailboat in the world. The Mark II Catalina 36 is built in the same seakindly moderate displacement hull. It tracks surely and performs well in a variety of conditions. The deck is the classic trunk cabin configuration - proven, comfortable and functional. The main cabin and galley have received special attention to design and detail. The galley is a functional 'U' shape, with composite countertops, the sinks are near centerline for proper drainage underway. A large refrigerated ice box is aft and a dry food locker is forward. A gimballed, stainless steel LPG stove with oven is standard equipment. The main cabin can be arranged with a dinette or traditional table. The two seats and game table to starboard can be made into a settee or berth with the cushions provided. The entertainment center cabinet can be fitted with a stereo and concealed TV. The main cabin and all interior teak has the warmth and durability only obtained with multiple coats of varnish. The 36 has stainless steel hand rails and anodized spars, reducing maintenance on deck and extending the sailing season. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems have been re-engineered to increase dependability and accessibility. Engine access, for example, is excellent, with the one-piece, insulated enclosure removed. The hull is rugged, hand-laminated, solid fiberglass; 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, a sturdy arrangement that is easy to tune.
