Catalina – 385

Florida, United States

Well Equipped and Extremely Clean – Looking for your next cruising boat?  This is a must see !

“Shoal draft” wing-keel plus in-mast furling main, large cockpit with folding wheel and perch seats on the stern rail, spacious galley and salon, making her easy to sail and comfortable to live on.  Dinghy Davits, Outboard Lift, Solar Panels – a cruisers dream.

The interior is light and well ventilated, with plenty of seating and table space.  It is suitable for a family or a couple with guests.  There is lots of storage throughout.

As Gerry Douglas (Catalina’s then VP of Operations and Designer) stated during the design phase, the “ 5 “ series Catalina line of boats were designed for the buyer who would also be interested in the BMW “ 5 “ series automobiles – stylish, great performance, great reliability and exciting to travel in  – these are the characteristics he intended to infuse to his designs, and the Catalina 385 demonstrates all of those features, and more.

[This boat was dry-docked in Safe Cove storage yard in Southwest Florida when Hurricane Ian struck in September 2022.  The hurricane caused the boat to be tipped onto its starboard side and because the yard was inaccessible for several weeks, rain water leaked into the salon, causing noticeable water damage to some of the cabinetry.  All of the affected cabinetry was removed and sent to the Catalina factory where the factory rebuilt and replaced all of the damaged millwork.  The below-the-waterline cosmetic damage to the hull was repaired and the hull re-bottom painted recently. – pre-repair pictures are available. 

Additionally, cabin mattresses were removed and will need to be replaced by the next owner – current owner will adjust purchase price when an offer is presented.]

Additional Info

Manufacturer Provided Description

Lead keels, long travelers for precise sail control, and lengthy inboard genoa tracks so the sail plan is balanced in all wind conditions are just a few of the many design features that sets the Catalina 385 apart from other yachts.

More unique features include a watertight StrikeZone™ collision bulkhead aft of the anchor locker. A backstay system creates an impressive cockpit for the avid sailor, and Catalina’s unique SecureSocket™ chain plates mast support system affords superior load resolution.

The 385’s moderate beam is carried well aft for a spacious cockpit; modest freeboard reduces windage and a beautiful hand-finished teak interior brings it all home with classic warmth and styling that has been a trademark of Catalina for 41 years.
