This beautiful, traditional wooden Catboat designed by Fenwick Williams (father of the modern day catboat) with her shallow draft, stiffness under sail, and roominess is a perfect day sailer. At 16’ over all with an 8’ beam she is ideal as a single hander but can also accommodate four comfortably in the cockpit.
She was custom built in 2010 using epoxied bead and cove construction with Western Red Cedar planking over Sitka Spruce ribs and Douglas Fir keel/skeg. All the trim is finely varnished genuine Teak. The hull, deck, centerboard and rudder are encapsulated in fiberglass.
Cabin: Accommodates two bunks and a portable head. All cushion fillers are of closed cell, polyester wrapped urethane and covered in Sunbrella fabric.
Rig: The mast is lightweight carbon fiber with gaff and boom of Sitka Spruce. The bronze fittings as well as Locust wood mast hoops, mainsheet blocks, belaying pins and cleats are, authentic, traditional reproductions. Sheets and halyards are of twisted, three strand spun polyester.
Sail: Made by Santa Cruz Sails (now Ullman) the heavy-duty sail of some 225 sf. is attached to gaff and boom with bronze track and slides and has 2 rows of reefing points. Though this is the Cat’s original sail, it has been only lightly used.
Covers: Custom sail and trailering covers including cockpit/cabin, rudder, and full mast.
Engine: The outboard is a Honda, 5hp, 4 stroke, extended shaft mounted on a removable bronze bracket.
Miscellaneous: Danforth anchor with line and chain, cockpit mounted compass, burgee masthead staff, remote gas tank, hoist lifting gear, pumps, docking lines and fenders, wind indicator and inflatable life jackets.
Trailer: Galvanized 17’, two wheel by Pacific - completely roadworthy. The trailer is fitted with a telescoping hoist for easy mast stepping.
This Catboat has been lovingly maintained and cared for by her owner/builder. It’s located in Carmel, CA and offered at $19,000.
