Frank Butler Catalina Yachts 1976-1987 270 sq. ft. portable varies 10 to 20 gal.

Approx. trailering wgt.: 6,2a0 lbs.

This is one of Catalina's most popular boats, with over 5,000 built from 1976 to 1987. There were plenty of choices: standard rig (shown here) or tall rig, three feet higher, with 7 percent more sail area; swing keel (2' 2" up, 5' 0" down) or fin keel (4' 0" draft, 400 pounds more ballast); traditional or dinette interior (see layout); outboard or inboard; available flip-top to increase cabin headroom from 5' 6" to 6' 6". (In 1987 a new, quite similar but by no means identical version was introduced, which continued in production through 1991. The new version offered a choice of either a 1,900 pound fin keel or a 1,750 pound wing keel.) Best features: One of the best things about owning a popular boat like the Catalina 25 is the automatic chance to make new friends among the thousands of existing C25 owners. Among the reasons for the boat's phenomenal popularity was her low first cost, whether new or used. Worst features: Construction quality over the years varied from poor to very good. Among mechanical problems, boats with swing keels tended to require more than average maintenance.

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
