The Catalina 42 is a design that brings together price, performance and longevity. A favorite of the Catalina designs judging from its popularity (1,022 were built over about 25 years). The Catalina 42 was the first American yacht in her class to offer three staterooms. The Mark II features a deeper and higher aspect rudder to improve handling and carries a total of 800 sq. ft. of upwind sail area with the shrouds set well inboard for tight sheeting angles. Sailing to within 35 degrees of the apparent wind. With a PHRF rating around 105 the Catalina 42 can hold her own on the club racing circuit and provides a fast weekend cruise even in light winds. Expect to see speeds of six and seven knots on a beam reach with a wind of 12-15 knots true.
Hull construction is a solid laminate with no coring and a structural liner anchors the furniture foundations. The deck is cored with end grain balsa except where hardware is installed where solid plywood was used. The stern is sculpted to create a swim platform and swoops up from the waterline to the deck at an angle that makes a Catalina profile easily recognizable even from a distance. A small molded-in bulwark adds a foothold when heeling and the lifelines are higher than the competition because Douglas believes there are no tradeoffs when it comes to safety. The fin keel was offered with a 4’10” wing version for skinny waters.
The Catalina 42 MkII Tri-Cabin layout features an owner's suite forward with a private head. The forward head has an enclosed shower stall. Aft of the head is a Pullman berth to port, and ample storage to starboard. The walk-through galley is to starboard in the main saloon, with a large dinette to port. The upgraded Ultraleather upholstery is attractive, comfortable, and durable. Moving aft, the large nav station is to port, and the head to starboard. On either side of the companionway are doors into the private aft cabins. Each has a double berth and convenient cabinets and lockers. With double berths in each of the three private cabins and a convertible double berth in the main saloon, EMILY T. has berths for up to eight people.
Emily T.'s galley offers ample storage and counter space. The gimballed three-burner propane stove with oven has a slide-out cover for even more working area. The stove and the double sink with hot and cold pressure water are stainless steel. The Adler Barbour refrigeration unit is accessible from the top and through the front. A microwave adds another element of convenience.
EMILY T.'s double spreader masthead sloop rig features roller furling on the genoa. All sail controls are led to the cockpit for convenient sail handling. A boom vang and traveler aid in tweaking the sail shape and adjusting to wind changes. Primary winches are self-tailing chromed bronze Lewmar 54s, while the cabintop halyard winches are self-tailing Lewmar 40s.

The Catalina 42 has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. By leading in design, cruising performance, and comfort, the Catalina 42 has become the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull of the 42 MkII is high volume, and easily driven, with a fine entry, firm midship section, and smooth run aft terminating in a modified reverse transom with an uncommonly spacious and functional boarding platform. A long, horizontal skeg runs aft between the fin or wing keel and the rudder for sure tracking. The rudder is large and balanced, ensuring control in all conditions. The Catalina 42 MkII deck was designed with shorthanded sailing in mind. All the halyards, the mainsheet and the single line main reefing controls are led to the cockpit, and placed to be operated from under the dodger when necessary. The wide weather decks and inboard shroud base make passage forward easy and secure. The bow roller and below deck electric windlass greatly simplify anchor handling. Both the two and three cabin arrangements feature varnished teak joinery and ash side paneling on the hull. Excellent light and ventilation are provided naturally from aluminum-framed opening hatches and ports. Numerous recessed halogen lights offer an inviting ambiance.
