This Catalina 445 "Simply Dreaming" is an attractive and innovative model in the Catalina fleet. The boat will serve well as a long haul cruiser whether along the coasts or across oceans.  Those who want to live aboard for any length of time will find that the boat is big enough and comfortable enough to be a great floating home away from home.

The cockpit is large and roomy with a folding table that will seat six for a meal. There is a swiveling pod built into the aft end of the table for the new 12” Raymarine Axiom+ chartplotter so you can see the screen from both sides of the boat.

The running rigging is set up for cruising in all weather. The mainsheet traveler on the cabin top is fully adjustable so you can power up or de-power the sail as the wind gusts. The traveler control lines both run to jammers on the port side of the cockpit. The genoa sheet tracks on the side decks are extra long, which will permit you to trim a reefed genoa accurately by moving the cars forward or trim a small storm jib when the wind really picks up. Few production boats offer this detail.

With halyards and reefing lines led aft on the cabin top to winches on either side of the cockpit, one being powered, you will be able to handle all sail trim tasks from the cockpit.

The 445 was designed for a couple who will be cruising on their own but will often have friends and family join them. The accommodation plan has been tailored to meet these specific needs with a large master cabin forward with a centerline double berth and its own head, a second double cabin aft to starboard with a second head. 

The port aft cabin has been created as a flexible living space that can accommodate three different uses. You can have either a double berth or upper and lower single berths. Or, if you do not have guests aboard, you can convert the cabin into a workshop and storeroom.

The saloon has the large galley to port. Well appointed with twin sinks, a front loading fridge as well as an additional top loading fridge or freezer, a three-burner - gimbaled stove has a cutting board top that you can use as a level surface even when the boat is heeled over or rolling; and, there are large storage lockers and rack space for all of the supplies, cutlery and dishes.

The chart table to starboard has been designed to fit regular ChartKits on top and to neatly store a laptop computer inside. This is a very modern and attractive nav station that will appeal to experienced sailors who will appreciate the fact that it faces forward.

The dinette to port has a folding table that converts from a low coffee table to a large dining table that will seat five or six. The dinette can also be converted into double berth.

To starboard the split settee is long enough to be a sea berth and small table folds up in the middle of the settee, which will be useful for playing cards, holding drinks or just for reading.

The standard Yanmar 54-horsepower engine will drive the boat at hull speed and can maintain a cruising speed of 7 knots at very efficient rpm. With 66 gallons of fuel, the 445 will have a motoring range at 6 knots of nearly 700 miles.  A bow thruster with updated electronics makes docking a breeze.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The hull 445's hull form is optimized to provide the gentle, predictable motion underway, which is so appreciated in other Catalina models. The deck is strikingly handsome with a low profile cabin structure, twin helm stations and a roomy cockpit with tall, secure comfortable coamings and a cockpit table that seats 4-6. The deck is finished with a traditional diamond-patterned non-skid.

The owner's cabin is forward for privacy and optimum ventilation. Private head access from the forward cabin along with a electric head and separate shower complete the forward cabin arrangement. The guest cabin is aft with a large comfortable double berth, angled for easy access and greater headroom. This design incorporates a innovative cabin on the port side. This cabin is a flexible space that can easily be converted to whatever your cruising style dictates at the time-sleeping quarters, storage, or a work room with a bench. The galley has the storage and features needed for extended cruising.
