Factory Upgrade Schedule...The Catalina 30 has always been "in development". The factory has improved the boat incrementally since the first hull emerged in 1974. Here is an approximate schedule of major changes in the production life of the boat. This was contributed by David Graas of Catalina Yachts. Send us your (verifiable) corrections by email.
