Since the introduction of the Mark I model in 1986, the Catalina 34 has built a well deserved reputation for possessing a classic blend of performance, comfort, and value. The devoted following of Catalina 34 owners now stretches worldwide. With this respected heritage in mind, Catalina has set out to design a fitting successor to this popular thirty-four foot sailboat. The result of this two year redesign is the Catalina 34 MkII. Every aspect of the Catalina 34 was re-evaluated to decrease maintenance, and increase reliability and comfort - both underway and at anchor. The experience of over 1,300 Catalina 34 owners proved the practicality of the masthead rig with fore and aft lowers, forestay, and backstay. The inboard shroud base leaves more room for secure footing on the non-skid deck and provides for narrow sheeting angles and the ability to carry large genoas. A new rigid boom vang and double ended mainsheet system make sail handling easier and more secure. The cockpit begins with two of Catalina's well known "sleeping length" seats. The handsome transom not only increases cockpit volume, but presents wide tapered coamings for additional seating options for captain and crew. The sleek new stem includes an unobstructed boarding platform, hot and cold fresh water shower, and extra wide boarding ladder that folds to become part of the stem rail. The ever popular stern observation seats are cleverly integrated into the rail. The skipper will find the traditional pedestal steering station with a new 40 inch stainless wheel. A new larger rudder delivers a level of precision and tracking through all points of sail, and visibility is increased with the new ultra-low profile ball bearing mainsheet traveler. An available fiberglass cockpit table has two folding leaves, beverage cooler, and crew foot rest. Low maintenance, high strength stainless steel rails have replaced all teak rails on deck. The over-size anchor locker comes with a standard electric windlass and new heavier anchor roller. Large two speed primary and secondary winches allow crew members to adjust sail trim single-handed. At the end of the day, the skipper will appreciate the standard "Lazy Mate" sail flaking system. The warm glow of satin varnished teak and ash first greets guests below deck. The newly sculpted settee and dinette cushions are highlighted by the striking new teak dining table, and two new fixed ports in the hull add a bright, open feeling to the expansive salon. The roomy new galley boasts a custom molded, one piece counter top; dry food locker; and overhead cup storage. The increased counter space conceals the built in trash chute under the cutting block top. Under the deep stainless double sink are even larger cupboards and drawers. An available built-in microwave beautifully complements the two burner gimbaled stainless range with oven. Three cedar lined hanging lockers and three huge double berths allow plenty of room for crew and overnight guests. The new wider aft cabin has an even larger berth, upholstered seat, and new bureau. A fixed port in the hull, as well as a large overhead ventilation - escape hatch, provide plenty of light and air flow. The roomy head is still aft, where it is closest to the cockpit. This uncommonly large compartment provides plenty of storage space, as well as a hot water shower and seat. A new one-piece counter top and minimum of horizontal surfaces allow more time sailing and less cleaning. Common to all Catalinas, the plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems are well planned, consisting of quality components that are arranged for easy owner maintenance.
