All About Your Catalina 34 MKII

Rig Specifications

These are the specifications provided by the designers, but even from the factory, these boats may not be identical. The reason for this is that the sail industry often contracts manufacturing to different sources in order to achieve economies of scale. What this means is – your Catalina 34 MKII may be more unique than you initially thought.

It’s important to note that boats are also frequently customized, so if you suspect that work has been done on yours, it’s best to take your own measurements. When ordering a sail, we will advise you if using the manufacturer’s specifications is appropriate, or if we require you to complete our own measurement forms.

Catalina Yachts is a well-known name in the sailing world, known for their quality and attention to detail. Established in 1969, they’ve had decades to perfect their craftsmanship.

Aside from filling the gap, their goal was to create a sailboat that would strike the perfect balance between performance, comfort and timeless design, and they did just that. This is a sailboat that found great success in both cruising and competitive racing, which gained it a loyal following of enthusiasts who appreciated its capabilities. Over the years, the Catalina 34 underwent a series of refinements and enhancements, reflecting Catalina’s commitment to continuous improvement. The feedback from sailors and advances in technology shaped the evolution of the boat, resulting in a vessel that embraced modern design elements while preserving its timeless appeal.


Sail Plan

The sail plan for the Catalina 34 MKII is designed to optimize responsiveness and versatility during all different wind conditions. The sail area is calculated to give you the perfect balance of power and control. The mainsail, which usually had full battens, is shaped to effectively generate forward thrust. The furling genoa or job aids the mainsail and provides additional power and assists with upwind performance.

All in all, this is a sailboat that is designed to excel in both upwind and downwind conditions.
