Catalina 250, 2002

  • Boat Name: SKYBEACH
  • Make: Catalina
  • Model: 250 WB (Water Ballast)
  • Year: 2002
  • Hull Number: 618
  • Location Portland, Oregon)
  • Price: $18,500


  • Manufacturer's: "First introduced in 1994, the Catalina 250 has become what many consider a modern classic. This proper, safe and affordable pocket cruiser was designed for the growing sailing family. A cockpit big enough for the whole crew, with comfortable seating and deep coamings, so you can sail, dine and move about in a safe, secure environment."
  • Seller's: "SKYBEACH is a very clean and well-maintained boat. She has been lightly used, exclusively in fresh water since 2004, and has been primarily dry-stored, under cover, on her trailer. Her bottom was prepped and painted in 06/2013, after which she has spent only two PNW sailing seasons in a fresh water slip, returning to her trailer during the winter.
  • In addition to the C250WB's generous complement of standard features--such as a kick-up beaching centerboard and rudder, a spacious cockpit with elevated stern rail seats, mainsail jiffy-reefing and headsail roller furling, a handsome interior with two double berths, a galley with sink, cooler and one-burner LPG stove, and an enclosed head with its own sink--she has numerous upgrades and extras, including a cruising spinnaker, control lines led aft, vinyl pop-top "tent", custom spray dodger, full set of interior/exterior cushions and covers, curtains and other interior accents, 4-speaker Jensen AM/FM/CD sound system, full AC/DC electrical & charging system, all-LED lighting, Raymarine i70 networked instrument display with thru-hull tri-data transducer, a reliable and bulletproof Honda 9.9 hp outboard with alternator and electric start, and even a Mermaid reverse-cycle air conditioning and heating system!
  • These and many other enhancements make SKYBEACH one of the best-equipped C250s on the water today, perfect for a couple or small family who are ready for a fun day of sailing or an extended inland cruise, in comfort and style, wherever the wind (or her trailer) may take her!"
