Catalina 27' and 30' Sailboats
Our current fleet consists of 5 Catalina 27′ and 1 Catalina 30′ sailboats.
Each of our Catalinas have been completely refitted with new wiring, cabinets and plumbing. The addition of holding tanks have made our boats “environmentally friendly”, which allows us access to U.S. waters including the San Juan Islands of Washington State. This addition meets the new Canadian regulations. Every boat is hauled out each winter, inspected, bottom refinished and hulls polished.
Rigging is constantly being upgraded. All 5 of our Catalina 27s have been completely re-rigged. Each is equipped with 120% furling Genoas. All of our Catalina 27s are equipped with Yamaha 9.9 hp high thrust 4-stroke motors.
The Catalina 30 is equipped with a Universal M25 (21 HP) diesel.
Our boats are fully equipped with dishes, pots and pans, utensils, etc. ready to cruise.
Each is fully equipped with safety gear which surpasses the Canadian Coast Guard safety standards.
Our first Catalina, purchased 1993
The Honeybee, the first of several gold-hulled boats in the fleet, was purchased in June 1993 with a loan from 10 members. To finance the loan, members were charged a daily usage fee of $50.00. The loan was repaid in just over two years.
The hulls were repainted in 2009 to the clean white you see today.
