Manufacturer’s Provided Description:


The challenges of extended offshore cruising have been met with a display of strength, innovative design, and engineering that clearly define the Catalina 470. A unique, structural fiberglass grid is bonded to the hull and provides both strength for the hull and a massive foundation for securing bulkheads, equipment, engine, and tanks. Below there is a new standard of functionality and comfort.


The galley is remarkable in its amount of cold, consumables, and equipment space. The generous deck beam is carried well aft providing for a large master stateroom below. The luxurious main salon boasts adjustable arm chairs and deep banquet seating available in soft, durable Ultraleather. Enjoy your flat screen smart TV and the Bose sound system. The separate nav station contains all necessary readouts.


For easy maintenance, centrally located equipment clusters offer easy access to all pumps, valves, and filters. At every turn, equipment and systems have been engineered to the most demanding bluewater specifications: the first ever articulated traveler rotates fore and aft, spreading the load evenly over bearing surfaces for smoother main sheet handling and more precise trimming. Custom cheek blocks and raised genoa tracks guide sheets straight aft to large, powerful winches.


Moreover, a powerful, double spreader rig and generous sail plan are balanced to deliver a remarkable combination of high performance and ease of handling.  A custom single side band isolated antenna has been incorporated into the back stay for future optional use for a ham radio which radio has not been added.
