1995 Catalina 36 MkII

location icon Salem, Massachusetts
Year 1995
Length 36'4 ft

Almost There is a very clean and well-cared-for version of the venerable Catalina 36, one of the most popular boats of this size with over 3,000 built between 1982-2006. The original version (MK I) was replaced in 1995 by the MK II which has has a larger cockpit and a more roomy and comfortable quarter berth cabin. 

According to Practical Sailor Magazine, the MK II is aimed at “couples and families who primarily weekend and vacation cruise, but may be planning some extended cruising,  They want a boat that is comfortable, offers reasonable performance, and is stable and predicable to handle. The boat suits their budget, and they can add gear for bluewater cruising.”

Like any boat her age, Almost There has had her share of bumps and bruises. If the above sounds like you, this might be the sailboat you've been looking for.
