The Catalina 27 didn't become one of the most popular boats ever built without good reason. It offers good sailing, comfortable accommodations, one-design fleets and active owner's groups.
The CATALINA 27 is one of several models from this builder that has achieved historic popularity. In it's first 3 years of production nearly 1500 boats were sold. Total production was 6662 hulls. Offered originally with a std. outboard well, in 1973, Catalina offered an inboard Atomic 4 engine as an option and over the years a number of other engines were available including a Universal Diesel.
Built in Canada under license.
In 1991 it was replaced with the CATALINA 270.
Wing keel option.
Shallow draft keel: 3.0'
