This Catalina 270 is immaculate and in Bristol condition with new sails, a Yanmar 18 HP diesel with 133 hours and excellent instruments. It will be hard to find a better equipped Catalina 270 in better condition. Located on Lake Thurmond near Augusta Georgia, this boat is a gem.
The Catalina 270 was designed to provide rewarding performance and comfortable accommodations for the active sailing family. Both goals are accomplished through the selection of a stable hull form with generous beam and fine entry forward. This approach delivers a hull that is wide at the sheer for maximum deck space, reserve buoyancy and good performance to weather.
The rig has double spreaders with fore and aft lowers which make the mast very stable, easy to set up and tune. This design provides the narrow shroud base necessary for proper genoa sheeting to weather.
The deck is highlighted by a "big boat" cockpit with Catalina's hallmark full-length cockpit seats with ergonomically contoured seat backs necessary for long term comfort aboard. In the cabin are all the amenities for weekend retreats and more extended family vacations. Comfortable seating around the varnished teak table provides a great place for meals, relaxing, reading or playing games. The galley is well-planned for the cook, with special attention given to usable storage, a large ice box, and flip up counter over the two-burner stove.
The head is a single piece molded unit that is easy to keep clean and fresh. In the sole is a standard shower pan.
By night the aft cabin is a private and comfortable retreat for two. The berth forward can be extended and enclosed for two, with the settees functioning well as single berths.
To provide more time for owners to enjoy sailing the 270, low maintenance materials have been used on deck and mechanical systems have been designed for easy access for service.
Quality materials and engineered structural systems carefully assembled promise the 270 to be durable, reliable and a pleasure to own for many years to come.
