The Catalina 25 has got to be one of the most well-conceived small-big boats (or big-small boats) in existence. At only 25 feet, but with an encapsulated-lead fin keel, and 40+% ballast-to-displacement ratio, she's a serious vessel, and can easily handle offshore conditions. She'll comfortably take to you Nantucket or the Vineyard, and beyond. With generous cushioned seating in the cockpit, she'll comfortably accommodate 6 adults for day-sailing. And with 4 legitimate berths, a dinette, galley, and head below, she is well-appointed for weekend cruising. The pop-top even gives you 6'-4" headroom in port or at anchor. No wonder the C25 is one of the most popular production sailboats ever made. And Wellfleet, MA one of the most interesting and lovely jumping-off harbors for northeast exploration.
