Standard features

The Catalina 34 was first introduced in 1986 to fill the market gap between Catalina’s 30’ and 36’ models. Between 1986 and 1995 the design remained pretty much unchanged except for the incorporation of a transom swim platform in 1990 and newer models. The length is 34’ 6 overall, 29’ 10 at the waterline, and the beam is 11’ 9. The standard draft is 5’ 7, although a shoal draft option is offered. When first introduced, the shoal draft model drew 4’ 8. In 1987 a wing keel model was introduced with an even greater reduction in draft to 4’ 3. Displacement of the standard draft model is 11,950 lbs. and 12,550 lbs. for the shoal draft model. Between 1986 and 1995 over 1,300 Catalina 34s were built.
Accommodations have always been a strong selling point for all Catalina models, and the 34 is no different. Most Catalina 34 owners have something good to say about the roominess of the interior. The layout features a V-berth cabin forward followed by the main saloon with starboard side dinette and port side settee. The galley is aft along the starboard side, and there is a good sized head along the port side next to the companionway. The master cabin is aft along the starboard side and features an athwartship double berth tucked below the cockpit. On the negative side, the galley has very little working counter space and there is no decent sea berth.

Auxiliary power on Catalina 34s was provided by a 23 hp Universal M-25 diesel engine although the

Extra gear included
