Catalina 275 - Sapphire - $129,000

Launched in 2016,'Sapphire' is a Catalina 275 Sport now proudly and exclusively for sale with YOTI. 

Sapphire is what's known as a pocket cruiser designed by Gerry Douglas and this particular boat has been the Australian demonstration model. She presents as new and comes with a myriad of upgrades which include, asymmetrical spinnaker with top down furler, halyard blocks and sheets. Canvas pack including winch covers and tiller cover. Cabin top self-tailing Harken winches. Cunningham. Deck mounted jib track and cars. Retractable bow sprit. Single point lifting eyelet complete with lifting tackle kit. Metho stove in galley. Raymarine i70 depth sounder, speed and wind. 2 blade folding propeller. Spinlock retractable tiller extension with easy-grip handle. Telescopic fold down ladder on transom. Removable crew bags in cabin. Solar panel on fore-deck and opening side gates both on port and starboard. 

The cockpit is extremely large and comfortable. The open transom provides great access to the water or onto the dock and the comfortable helm position provides good line of sight with the self- tacking headsail making sailing to windward a breeze. 

Down below, Sapphire has a cosy and modern feel and can comfortably sit the crew around the dining table which folds down to convert into a double bed. There is also a large quarter berth on the port side which is also accessible from the cockpit, as is the cockpit storage locker on the starboard side. 

The galley boasts a stainless-steel sink and a single burner metho stove, under which is a large pull-out ice box/esky and opposite the galley is a generous and fully enclosed head compartment with Jabsco manual toilet (with holding tank) and wash basin. 

Sapphire is powered by a Yanmar 14.6 hp saildrive diesel which propels her along handsomely and is extremely quiet and fuel efficient. 

This great little yacht has everything you need to get out on the water and have loads of fun, either simply cruising or racing around the cans, and if you're having too much fun and want to stay out overnight, it's completely possible, without feeling like you're camping out.
