Additional Details

Manufacturer Provided Description
The design of the Catana 431 leaves nothing to chance - every aspect of safety and comfort has been thoroughly thought out. The salon and chart table occupy the forward part of the bridgedeck. Around the big U-shaped salon, eight people can dine in comfort, just opposite the pleasant, well-ventilated, and well-equipped galley, which faces the cockpit. Both the owner's cabin occupying the whole starboard hull and the two guest cabins in the port hull are vast, bright, very well ventilated, and finished to Catana quality. The owner's head is large, well ventilated (by a giant porthole), and includes a separate shower, washbasin, and toilet. The ergonomics of the decks and cockpit are exceptional. The winches for genoa and spinnaker sheets, the daggerboard controls, and the furling line fall nicely to hand. The automatic reefing system and the tender raising system allow the helmsman to do everything without leaving the shelter of the cockpit. The passage from the cockpit to the transoms is an invitation to swim. The bathing ladder and the freshwater shower transform the teak trimmed steps into genuine platforms for relaxation.Equipment List
