Latitude is a beautifully updated 1989 Catalina 30 Mark II with a shoal draft of only 3' 10". The Catalina 30 is the most popular 30' boat ever built. As Jack Hornor writes in a BoatUS review "Consider that you could combine the production of ten of the most popular 30' model sailboats built in the US over the last 25 years and still not approach the number of Catalina 30s built."
She's easy to single hand with all lines led back to the cockpit. There's also plenty of room for four to six in the cockpit for a nice afternoon lunch meeting on the water.

We had a great experience renting Chuck's Catalina. Over 4 days, we were able to sail around Sarasota, Longboat Key, Egmont Key, Tampa Bay, and the Manatee River. We anchored at Mar Vista, snorkeled close to dolphins, etc.
The family of 4 is looking forward to another trip on "Latitude". With an extra day, we'd be able to go South to Venice and Boxa Grande. Next time!
