This well cared for example of the popular Catalina 42 MKII is Ready to Go Cruising!

The MKII model of the Catalina 42 series is designed by Gerry Douglas and was first built in 1995 proceeding several hundred of the original Catalina 42 that was built from 1989 to 1995. This model is still produced by Catalina, attesting to its popular design. "Desperado" is a very well cared for example of  the Catalina 42 MKII and is new to the market. There are four different cabin versions of the Catalina 42 MKII that have been built. "Desperado" is the two cabin, pullman model which offers a Pullman cabin forward and a large aft quarter cabin on starboard. At our docks here in San Diego, she shows true "pride of ownership"! The yacht is fully outfitted with all the requisite electronics, canvas and eisenglass in great condition. The current owner has continuously upgraded and maintained her. See the improevements, upgrades and replacements made recently in the full specifications. This Catalina is more than ready for trips to Catalina Island, local, coastal or extended cruising. She is ready to go now and patiently is awaiting her next adventure. 

This one is truly a MUST SEE at our docks now!
