1989 Catalina 34

Portsmouth, Rhode Island


"VIAJERA" is both a well-equipped and maintained C34. She boasts the largest cockpit in her class, set up to be singled-handed but large enough to be enjoyed with guests. She is the shoal-drafted, wing-keeled version of this timeless coastal cruiser design by Frank Butler. The C34 is a very forgiving boat that offers the newer or even seasoned sailer responsive performance and comfort at the same time. It is no argument her current owners have taken her above and beyond, Please read the upgrades & refits section in the listing for more detail.

Notable Highlights:

  • New half-battened main & 135% genoa by Precision Sails
  • Universal 25hp overhauled w/ 950 original engine hours
  • Recent hull-bottom soda blasting
  • All interior & exterior teak refreshed

Currently on hard for the winter season and can be seen by scheduled appointment.
