Cruising World’s “1996 Yacht of the Year” (best boat in the small cruiser category). The interior arrangement of the Catalina 28 also has the look and feel of a larger boat and nearly all the standard accommodations of a 35-footer. The arrangement features a V-berth cabin forward, main saloon with port and starboard settees, and centerline drop-leaf table. To the port side of the companionway there is a head with shower. The deck layout of the Catalina 28 clearly has the look of a bigger boat with its T-shaped cockpit, wheel steering, walk-through transom, and stern boarding platform.
