Set-up for extended cruising, Wanuskewin is ready to go when you are. Back in the USA after a 4-year adventure along the Pacific coasts of North America, Central America, and the Caribbean, this sought-after hull design has proven her sailing worth.

A fantastic example of the very popular Catalina 42 MKII. She is clean and has been very well maintained. Her large, welcoming cockpit is great for entertaining and comfort under way. Down below, the 2 cabin, Pullman berth configuration is perfect for guests, and a large convertible dining settee completes comfortable sleeping arrangements for 6.

She is a great sailing vessel both on and off the wind, so much so that you will find yourself sailing and enjoying the ocean while others have switched on the diesel (all of our buddy-boating friends envied us!).

Set up for short-handed sailing, all controls are led aft to the cockpit, where it is easy to trim and reef.  (Our single line slab reefing with the Dutchman sail management system is super easy to us, and never jams like roller furling mains do).

With a deep fin keel and elliptical spade rudder, the yacht gives her sailors the advantage of steady tracking under sail (two finger steering!) and with extra buoyancy aft, even though the transom is open walk-through style, she stays dry, even in large following seas.

A smooth running, dependable and fuel efficient 55 HP Yanmar diesel adds further peace of mind.

Wanuskewin is turn-key, ready for her next cruising adventure. She is priced to sell, and since she is in great shape, this very desirable Nelson-designed hull will not be on the market long. Call for a showing today to see this great voyager for yourself!
