Cambria sailing yachts were designed by David Walters as the American-built counterpart to the Baltic and Swan sailing yachts that were highly popular in the 1980's. The design standard was for a fast, comfortable, performance-cruiser built to the same quality standard as the iconic American brands Hinckley, Alden, and Little Harbor, and to exceed Lloyds' and ABS standards (American Bureau of Shipping). During the design process, the Hazen stern speed prediction formula was used to confirm performance and stability objectives before building began. Molds were built for the hull and deck at construction facility in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. The hull and deck molded of hand-laid bi-directional and triaxial FRP fiberglass for superior strength, with an Airex core that ensures maximum sound and thermal insulation, and a strong bond to the inner and outer glass laminates.

The yachts were finished with varnished teak cockpit coaming, dorade boxes, and grab rails, and laid teak on the bridge deck, cockpit and side decks (new on CATHERINE in 2001 and in great condition); the superstructure has non-skid surface.

The first Cambria was launched in 1983 and debuted at the 1984 Annapolis International Sailboat Show where hull 1 - 4 were sold. In 1987 Cambria Yachts were featured in The World's Best Sailboats" (Volume 1) by boatbuilding author Ferenc Mate.

Timeless design, attention to detail and high-quality build, generous beam, shoal draft with centerboard (draft is 5'3" with the board up and 10'9" with the board down), skeg hung rudder, electric in mast furling, 44' on deck and 46' overall (from the bow to the tip of the reverse stern) with a 37' waterline, easy to sail from the aft deep steering cockpit with convenient engine and navigational equipment controls for good sailing performance, the diesel engine offers a cruising speed of 7 knots (max 8.5 knots), generator and air conditioning - these are some of the reasons that the Cambria's are still today a desirable performance cruising sailboats.

There are 2 companionways, one to the salon, and another to the aft stateroom. The interior is finished in varnished teak interior and sole is teak with holly inlay throughout. Two large staterooms - forward V-berth and double aft, plus 2 heads and stall shower. There is an overhead deck hatch and chain locker access on the forward bulkhead. Aft to port is the head / shower compartment. Step aft to the salon in the companionway leading to the aft cabin. The aft cabin has a double bunk to starboard and a navigation station and settee / single berth to port. Access to the deck is either from steps in the salon or from the aft cabin.

Maintained consistently in mint condition by her 3 owners, CATHERINE was launched in 1986 as hull #6 of the Cambria 44's.
