Catalac 10M

In design terms, if not in production numbers, this 1984 model was the most successful of the Catalacs. Described as a country cottage on floats, she is, in multihull terms, overweight and undercanvassed. But she is also very comfortable and substantially built. To windward you put the engine on, but off the wind she can lift her skirts to a solid breeze. She is easy, if unrewarding, to handle. Below decks she is vast with two huge double cabins and a single, in addition to the saloon (several alternatives to this can be found). There is also plenty of stowage in the splendid galley.
