2005 Catalina 470

Annapolis, Maryland


The Catalina 470 was the flagship of the fleet for many years. Designed by Catalina's head designer, Gerry Douglas, the 470 was designed as a rugged, well equipped offshore passage maker. 

The Catalina 470 was arguably designed with the most impressive list of construction refinements and quality of life features ever offered in a production yacht. All the equipment and systems have been engineered to the most demanding blue water specifications. The Catalina 470 features a unique, structural fiberglass grid that is bonded to the hull and provides both strength for the hull and a massive foundation for securing bulkheads, equipment, engine, and tanks. The generous deck beam is carried well aft providing for an expansive cockpit with twin steering stations and large master stateroom below. The Catalina 470 embodies all that is essential to safe passage making and all that is desired in performance, function, comfort, and luxury.

Sally C. has an enormous two-cabin, two-head layout. Either stateroom could be considered a master, both have loads of storage, are quite spacious and have ensuite access to the heads, both with separate showers. The galley is larger than many apartments and the spacious salon is great for relaxing and entertaining. All of this makes for a great live aboard, weekend getaway or platform to explore far-away shores.

Easy to handle, Sally C. has full electronics, furling in-mast main and genoa, bow thruster, electric winches, a generator, heat, and air conditioning and pretty much every option Catalina offered. Her owner has maintained her with an open checkbook, and it shows. Everything works.  

Please contact the listing broker for more information and to schedule a private showing. She won't last long!
