The owner wants Chardonnay sold and has offered her at a very reasonable price. Chardonnay is a Catalina 36 ft sloop built by the well-known boat builder, Frank Butler. The experience gained from years of being connected to the sailboat industry, he made Catalina into one of the most successful sailboat companies worldwide. The Catalina 36 has been proven as an ideal cruising boat, a nice beam and spacious interior but within a size range that allows to be easily managed if shorthanded.

Chardonnay is a fin keel sloop with a near 12 ft beam. This width is notice when below and how comfortable she is. Everything is included so she comes well equipped and ready to go. A large cockpit with a sliding hardtop dodger, cockpit cushions allow for fabulous outside time. But do not let the comforts foul you. With a fin keel design, she has some speed and still moves along very well in various wind conditions. The boat was just hauled in March for a full bottom paint and zinc update. So, she is ready for a new season and a new owner.

It would be a pleasure to show her to you. Call or email me for further details.
