Catalina Yachts has long been one of the most successful sailing yacht manufacturers in the world, but what is perhaps most impressive about a company that doesn't even advertise its product is the number of hugely successful models they have had since introducing the Catalina 22 in 1970. In a business where a three or four year production run of a few hundred boats is considered a success, I can think of no manufacturer who comes close to Catalina's success in the number of models that remained in production for ten years or more. Having sold 700 boats by it's 13th year of production, the Catalina 42 is one of the most successful 40 plus footers ever built.
Catalina's in-house design team, lead by chief designer Gerry Douglas, designed the Catalina 42. Introduced with the 1989 model year, the 42 was the first American built sailboat of this size to offer a three-stateroom layout. The MK I version was built until February 1995 (hull #477) when it was replaced with the MK II version which remained in production until the 2004 model year. There were very few changes between the MK I and MK II models although, as a concession to popular European styling, the transom was rounded off at the deck. In addition, storage was added to the cockpit seating and a two-stateroom layout option was offered.
The construction of the Catalina 42 is as sound as any similarly priced and sized boats and better than some. The hull is constructed of a solid laminate of fiberglass and resin with no core materials. The hull is fitted with a structural fiberglass liner that incorporates the cabin sole as well as berth and furniture foundations. The deck is a cored composite with fiberglass and 3/4" end grain balsa wood. Where deck hardware is installed, 1/2" plywood is used instead of balsa wood. The deck and hull are joined in a shoebox fashion flexible adhesives and stainless steel nuts, bolts and washers on eight-inch centers. There is an aluminum rub-rail with vinyl insert fastened at the deck to hull joint with stainless steel screws.
On deck, the Catalina 42 is clean and unobstructed except for the deck hatches and handrails. The anchor windlass is located in a foredeck locker to keep it out of the way when not needed. Rigging shrouds are set well inboard to allow effective sheeting angles and easy passage on either side. The mainsheet traveler is located on the cabin top forward of the companionway and out of the way of the dodger. The cockpit is large with seats that are 6' to 8' long and big enough to stretch out in. The helm seat at the transom opens to allow access to a swim platform molded into the transom. Thee is a folding table in the cockpit forward of the binnacle.
The interior is bright and roomy with beautiful woodwork throughout. There is a head and shower forward where a V-berth cabin might normally be found. Between the main saloon and the forward head is a Pullman-styled stateroom with port berth and starboard hanging locker, chest of drawers and settee. The berth is wide and extends form centerline to the hull side and is 72" in length. The main saloon features a port side dinette with a drop-leaf table and a full galley to starboard. The navigation station is down the companionway stairs and to port. The three-cabin arrangement has mirror image quarter berth cabins aft and a second head forward of the starboard quarter berth cabin.
3 cabin layout offers two, essentially equal aft cabins both port and starboard of the companionway. The main saloon is spacious with pullman galley to starboard, chart table and crescent shaped dinette to port. Forward in the owner stateroom with pullman berth to port, seat and lockers to starboard, head in the forepeak.
Starboard side galley in the main saloon features refrigeration, propane stove and oven, deep double sinks and ample stowage.
