Main Specifications


Below decks the interior feels generously proportioned for a boat of just 30' and clever use of all available space provides bunks for a total of 7 if required. The open plan layout of the main living space creates a bright interior ideally suited to family cruising.


Separated from the main living space aft with a teak folding door the cabin provides two single berths in the standard V-berth layout. Storage is provided in lockers under the aft ends of the bunks. Light enters the cabin through an opening deck hatch.


Immediately aft of the forepeak the dedicated heads compartment lies on the port side of the boat. Compartment constructed in an easily cleaned moulding. Appointed with manual sea toilet, sink and vanity unit. Heads can discharge overboard or via holding tank.


Open plan layout the saloon feels like its from a boat of far more than 30' in length. A large hanging locker is provided at the forward end opposite the heads. Along the starboard side a bench settee runs the length of the area, converting to a generous single bunk if required. Opposite on the port side the L-shaped settee warps around the large saloon table which cleverly folds down from its stored position against the main bulkhead. The table can be used to convert the seating into a large double bunk when required. Storage is above the settee back outboard.

Nav Station

Located at the aft end of the saloon settee on the starboard side the navigation station provides a forward looking chart table with storage provided beneath the lifting table top. Outboard of the table the ships switch panel is easily accessible.


U-shaped galley to port of the companionway steps. The worktops are finished in Catalina's Custom Counter Top single piece moulding which incorporates the fiddles and is easily cleaned.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Catalina 30 Mark III has been redefined by incorporating some of the best modern features of the popular C-270 and C-320 designs. The transom and cockpit areas reflect the most significant refinements. The new stern section is now dramatically wider at the deck and curves gracefully to form a very functional and spacious boarding platform. The already famous C-30 cockpit is now even more comfortable than ever with wider coamings for outboard seating and new observation seats built into the stern rail. Low maintenance materials have been used extensively to give you more time to enjoy your C-30. New stainless steel traveler supports improve visibility and reduce friction on halyards. The Catalina 30 Mark III shares the under body and rig of earlier Catalina 30s, and is eligible to participate in Catalina one-design events and Class Association activities. Below deck, the layout that defined a modern classic has remained true to its heritage, but has become even more comfortable and functional with the addition of several thoughtful improvements and subtle refinements. The galley has been made even larger with the design of new custom countertop surfaces. With the larger counter space has come increases in size and number of cupboards and drawers. An all new dish and cup storage rack better organizes often used items. Varnished teak cabin surfaces are accented by polished brass light fixtures. Natural light has been increased through the addition of three fixed ports in the hull. As with all Catalinas, there is an extensive list of custom equipment, including a choice of wing or fin keel and tall or standard rigs.
