Two private staterooms, an enclosed head, large salon and full galley, along with ample storage space, make the Catalina 320 an ideal coastal cruiser for a family of four or two couples. Safe, stable, seaworthy and easy to sail, it's no wonder the 320 was one of the most popular models Catalina ever built. K SEA comes with a fully-battened mainsail in a Doyle StackPack, a reliable Yanmar diesel engine and is fully equipped and ready to take you and your family and friends on your next sailing adventure.

The Catalina 320 is an exciting design that successfully combines the best modern features and construction with Catalina's hallmark comfort and value. Based on a high-performance and high-volume computer-optimized hull design, the 320 is light on the helm and tracks well under sail or power. Motion and heeling are gentle and predictable. The 320 performs well in a variety of conditions, with either the available wing or fin keels. Racing skippers will enjoy the turn of speed and cruisers will appreciate the additional distance covered in a day's passage. Carrying the deck beam well aft created space for an exceptionally large cockpit. The wide coamings and ergonomically correct seats and backs are important features, considering the cockpit is where we all spend the most time when aboard. The weather decks are wide with molded-in non-skid and bulwarks, giving easy, sure access to the foredeck and standard below deck electric anchor windlass. Other important quality features of the deck include the stout aluminum framed opening deck hatches and ball bearing mainsheet traveler system. The rigging and spar systems are engineered for performance and durability. The fore and aft lowers with intermediate and upper shrouds make the rig very secure and easy to keep in tune. A rigid adjustable boom vang is standard. The unique interior is beautifully finished in a rich combination of teak, ash and maple hardwoods, complementing the beige textured fiberglass overhead and full hull liner. Attention to details like the custom molded galley counters with integral backsplashes, three separate lighting circuits in the main cabin, removable panels in the forward bulkhead, and a cedar paneled hanging locker set the 320 apart from the ordinary. The one-piece, integral molded fiberglass subsole grid system is rigid, strong and requires no maintenance.
"K SEA is a great opportunity for someone to get into a roomy, mid-sized cruising sailboat at a very reasonable price. The current owner did not sail the boat at all last season and would really like to pass her on to someone who would get some use out of her doing what she was designed for - coastal cruising with friends and family. The Catalina 320s from this era were hugely popular and are still highly sought after because they were so solidly built, comfortable to hang out on, and also had great sailing characteristics. K SEA needs a good buffing and waxing on the topsides and deck, but besides that I can't see anything significant or that needs immediate attention. (A potential buyer might want to add a dodger and should factor that into their calculations. The picture of a 320 sailing is a sister ship.) The bottom is in great condition with no bottom paint build-up, the sails are fine and the Yanmar diesel engine appears to have been well-maintained. There is a recent professional survey in our file (2018) that the owner is happy to share, which K SEA passed with flying colors. If you are in the market for a great coastal cruising boat for this season, give us a call and we'd be happy to show you K SEA!
