Catalina 309 - Fleur de Force - $114,000

Launched new in 2007, Fleur De Force is a very well presenting Catalina 309 listed exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater.

Stemming for the most successful production yacht brand in this class globally, the Catalina 309 is one of the later models produced by the American manufacturers. Catalina managed to create an impressively spacious and usable package in just under 10 meters with two private double cabins, additional saloon berths, a fully enclosed head and shower space plus a very impressive saloon space and big galley. The 309 shares a long list of big boat features and quality including good tank capacities, electric anchor winch, large refrigeration, big cockpit storage, in mast furling, hot and cold pressure water, good standing head room in the modern and bright cabin plus importantly the transom becomes walk through when the helm seat is removed.

The saloon tables are seriously versatile and include a smaller coffee / drinks style table which gives excellent walk through cabin access plus a large dining table which folds to accommodate more than enough guests (the larger table neatly secures out of the way to the side in the aft cabin when not in use).

Fleur De Force includes a Raymarine instrument package with auto pilot, an upgraded folding Lewmar steering wheel, dodger and bimini with infill, upgraded house battery bank (from one to two) plus battery charger and inverter.

Her owners chose the yacht for her comfort, safety and classic good looks. Fleur De Force has been maintained regularly and professionally including a major engine service including full cooling system service in July 2017 simply as a precautionary measure. The Yanmar shaft drive has only logged around 445 hours.

For a fun, safe, easy and very well kept example of the 309, contact Peter Mactier at YOTI for full details and to arrange inspection Pittwater.
