The entire deck, cabin house and cockpit are new for the mark II edition of the popular Catalina 18. More sculpted curves have contributed to a boat that is more comfotable in the cockpit, safer on deck and more pleasing to the eye. The cockpit seats are still 6 ft. 10 inches long and even more comfortable than before. Below is a well lighted and ventilated compartment, perfect for overnight accommodations for a couple or family with children. Shoal draft and good performance in light and heavy winds dictated the Capri 18 hull shape. The Catalina 18mkII is well balanced and light on the helm, inspiring confidence in the learning sailor and delighting the seasoned skipper.
