“Dorothy Gale” is a proven cruiser who served her owner very well over the 10 years that he has owned her. Equipped with full electronics, generator, air conditioning, new Doyle mainsail, upgraded refrigeration, led lighting, AIS and much more. Priced $ 25,000 below other recently sold Catalina 445’s to reflect the need to replace the canvas and  genoa in the next year or so. The bottom paint should be renewed at time of purchase. 

The Catalina 445 is a new hull design with moderate beam and freeboard and long waterline. Twin helm stations, roomy cockpit, great living spaces and comfortable accommodations. The 445 features an owners stateroom with a queen island berth forward with private access to the head and a guest cabin aft with a large, comfortable a double berth. There is also an innovative flex cabin to port  that is easily converted to your needs: sleeping quarters, storage, or work room with a bench.

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.
