The exciting Catalina 400 represents a high point in the modern evolution of performance cruising boat design. The large aft cockpit with twin wheels is functional, ergonomically correct and beautiful. Rigging is stout and easy to keep tuned for optimal performance. Sail controls like the double ended mainsheet and rigid boom yang are logically arranged to efficiently manage the 400's powerful sail plan. The accommodations are the finest in her class. The cabins are naturally lighted and ventilated by skylights, hatches and ports. The galley is equipped for serious cooking without compromise. Varnished teak, ash, and coordinated fabrics complement the custom countertops and durable textured overhead. The 400 is equally beautiful in less apparent areas such as the carefully engineered fiberglass sub-sole structural grid and well-planned electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems.
