FRESH WATER TANK
EQUIPPED FOR CRUISING.
This 1997 Catalina 42 MK II is located in Deltaville, VA. This model is one of the best-liked cruising boats of all time. It is well very well appointed with 6’8 headroom in the salon, it can accommodate most people. The 2 cabin layout allows for a spacious interior and a LOT of storage, which is what every cruiser desires. Nirvanau has a deep draft (6’8″) which, along with the classic mainsail, makes for outstanding performance. Wide side decks, a large, deep cockpit with all lines running aft, a walkthrough transom make it easy and safe to move around the boat and comfortable when at anchor.
Nirvanau has done many miles of passagemaking under three ownerships. The current owners are the third owners and sailed largely in the North East during the summer, but have done 2 trips to the Bahamas in 2013/14 and 2018/19. The boat is clean and tidy and ready for the next adventure.
