Catalina 320

Although Catalina has a reputation for conservative looking yachts, the American company has never been afraid of finding unusual solutions to the problem of fi nding space below decks. The 320 was launched in 1993 and 880 were built, some with outrageously angled bulkheads, particularly in the heads and galley area. With extensive use of white laminates and mouldings trimmed with teak, the interior is bright and easy to maintain. An athwartships double in the aftercabin, double and single in the saloon and a double forecabin make up the basic accommodation.
