Designed with a keen focus on ergonomics, the Catalina 356’s layout begins with the cockpit, offering unparalleled comfort and functionality. The raised helm seat ensures optimal visibility over the coachroof, while the bench seats are angled to provide excellent back support and safety. Twin backstays with outboard chainplates maximize space around the helm and stern pulpit seats, enhancing manoeuvrability and convenience.

The low-profile binnacle at the helm accommodates a chartplotter without obstructing the commanding view, while well-positioned winches and working lines optimize sail handling. The cockpit’s expansive layout facilitates easy access to the side decks and an oversized locker providing ample storage space for essential items.

Other deck features include the long steel grab rails on the coachroof just forward of the dodger and the long genoa tracks.

Below deck, attention to detail is evident throughout the accommodation plan. The galley offers ample storage space and a dual-opening refrigerated box, extending the countertop for efficient meal preparation.  The aft cabin boasts significant light and ventilation, while the saloon features convertible twin seats and a versatile folding table. Storage areas are easily accessible, and the aft-facing navigation station provides space for electronics and charts.

The highlight of the interior is the master stateroom forward, featuring a full-size island double berth and ample storage. The fit and finish throughout the interior are exceptional, with solid wood joinery ensuring durability and longevity.

Experience the epitome of comfort and functionality with the Catalina 356, where every detail is meticulously crafted to enhance your sailing experience. Discover the perfect cruising yacht for your adventures in Australia and beyond, brought to you by Catalina Yachts.
