It all started when…

The Catalina 30 is a series of American sailboats, that were designed by Frank Butler and later by Gerry Douglas.

The boat was built by Catalina Yachts in the United States, but it is now out of production. During its production run from 1972 to 2008 in many versions the design sold 6,430 examples, making it one of the most successful keelboat designs ever built.
