(Totally Rebuilt in 2017)

The most popular sailboat (in this size range) ever built in the US. The Catalina-25 has turned out to be one of the most successful small cruising sailboats ever built, with 5,332 boats sold between 1976 and 1990. The fin keel is generally acknowledged to sail close to its rating, at least once the breeze pipes up to 10 knots of so, making it a very stable sailboat in all conditions.

All Catalinas are supported by Catalina Direct who specialize in parts, custom up-grades, and accessories for Catalinas. From single replacement parts to complete systems, they deliver items locally, across the country, and to locations world-wide wherever Catalinas are found.

In 2017 SOLO went through a complete rebuild and upgrading of all systems from the bottom of the keel to the Windex at the top of the mast and everything in between at a cost of over $9,000.
