The Catalina 38 is a recognized Performance Cruiser. It was the yacht used in the 1980s era Congressional Cup which is still one of match racing's most prestigious events. Originally an S&S design Catalina made significant updates adding a balanced spade rudder, a high-aspect-ratio rig with taller mast & shorter boom. The interior also was reconfigured as a weekender. The 38s maintain the classic performance look with long overhangs, generous tumblehome and a reverse transom. As a result, she is the perfect racer cruiser for the Chesapeake. Her lines will turn heads wherever you go.
