The Catalina 25 is a good racer/cruiser for inland or coastal waters. The Catalina 25 is a masthead sloop with a modern but conservative design, resulting in a boat that continues to have a relatively modern appearance. She has a modern canoe underbody and broad transom. With a waterline length of 22'2", her length on deck to waterline ratio is equally modern. Other design elements include a traditional sheer line, a slightly raked bow, a plumb stem with stern hung rudder, and the standard well-known Catalina cabin trunk and port configuration.
