The Catalina 34 offers an very efficient layout which is why this particular model remains one of the most popular that Catalina ever designed. 

The owners cabin is located aft to starboard and it's gigantic due to the fact that there's no cockpit locker on the starboard side to hinder headroom. As often happens, a weekend sometimes includes a day of wind and rain and the aft cabin of the Catalina 34 offers a great cozy reading place to hang out with with a spot of tea while listening to the rain pelting above.

Forward of the aft cabin is the L-shaped galley that features double sink, pressure hot & cold water, manual fresh water foot pump, propane stove with oven and good galley storage.

The head with shower is located aft to port. The head is not in the least cramped and includes a clever teak slatted seat for comfortable showering.

There is an aft facing nav station located forward of the head. The main salon features a U-shaped dinette to starboard and sette to port with storage outboard.The owners of Aloha enjoy entertaining aboard and found they needed a little bit more table space.  The solution was a custom table that may be used either in the cockpit or in the salon wherein it extends the existing table to provide plenty of room for all.

The forward cabin features a nice V-berth with insert, a large overhead hatch for star-gazing as well as two additional opening ports for cross ventilation.  For storage, there's a large drawer beneath the V-berth as well as a bank of four drawers to port with a hanging locker opposite to starboard.

Construction Details (From Manufacturer's Brochure)

Overall the Catalina 34 is a sleek yachts with crisp clean lines and sturdy construction.  A one piece fiberglass hull, an engineered sub sole structural system with stainless steel tie rods, a molded structural hull liner, and a stainless steel truss at the mast step provide reassuring strength at sea.

On board, the deck has molded-in non-skid surfaces.  The cockpit seats are comfortable and large enough to sleep or sun bathe on.

Below, the Catalina 34 is designed with a modern aft cabin arrangement, maximizing space and affording a high degree of privacy.
