'Synergy' a 1997 Catalina 380

Catalina has been building good boats for a long time. They have mastered the clean deck layout, maximized interior space and tend to use bigger and better gear then their competition.

Welcome aboard ...

Stepping aboard Synergy one is immediately struck by the size and layout of the cockpit ... and the cockpit is where everyone wants to be on a sailboat!  Plenty of room to move about, a fixed cockpit table is a great brace when under way and opens up to entertain a crowd when the sailing's done. The walk out transom and deep boarding ladder make transitioning from dinghy, dock or a morning swim very easy.  Two "perch" seats built into the stern rail afford a comfortable place to sit when underway or at rest.

Sails & Rigging
Handling is made simple with traditional mainsail aided by a Dutchman flaking system. All lines are lead aft to properly sized winches and line clutches, raising, lowering, reefing and trimming can all be accomplished from the cockpit.  The low boom height makes fitting or removing the sail cover a snap.

  • 135% Genoa
  • Schaeffer Furler
  • Spare main halyard

Synergy feels roomier then a 38 footer typically does, accomplished by good headroom, clever design, light teak woodwork and hull ports.
