Description

This Catalina is ready to sail away!

The Catalina 309 sails like a dream. The mainsail drives the boat nicely and is the easiest sail to operate on a boat this size. You can adjust the size and shape of the sail to suit conditions and the boat responds quickly to those adjustments, letting you know what works and what does not.

 

The boat is light and maneuverable and the sails are not all that heavy, so a quick pinch into the wind will allow you to pull the outhaul to flatten the sail or trim in the main and jib sheets without using the winch in winds up to 15 knots. Helm response is quick, so if you're quick on the lines, you won't lose much speed at all. What this means is its EASY & FUN

The Catalina 309

The Catalina 309 sails like a dream. Serious sailors may think that the standard in-mast furling mainsail doesn't look like serious sailing equipment, but to them I say, "just try it." That mainsail may look funny, and there is not a telltale anywhere on it, but it drives the boat nicely, and is the easiest sail to operate you have ever seen on a boat this size. You can adjust the size and shape of the sail to suit conditions, and the boat responds quickly to those adjustments, letting you know what works and what does not.

The boat is light and maneuverable enough, and the sails are not all that heavy, so a quick pinch into the wind will allow you to pull the outhaul to flatten the sail or trim in the main and jib sheets without using the winch in winds up to 15 knots or so. Helm response is quick, so if you're quick on the lines, you won't lose much speed at all. What this means is its EASY & FUN!
