Catalac 30

Variously known during her long production run as the Catalac 29, 30 and 9m, this boat launched the popular Catalac range of cruising catamarans. Designed by Tom Lack with MG Duff in 1971, her chief attributes were safety, spaciousness, an unusually well-built interior and good weight carrying. She
slept five in one double and three single cabins, plus two in the saloon. The galley is huge, as is the cockpit with its sheltered steering position. The small rig is easily handled. The stepped deckline and general layout remained constant throughout production, but there were improvements to detail. She makes a good floating home with motor-sailer performance.
