Oliver II
34' Catalina 34 1988

$ 32,500

With a total of over 1,400 hulls built, this venerable Catalina has been well proven over time. “Designed by Frank Butler, it quickly gained popularity as a fast, stiff, and sturdily-built cruising yacht. It is a great light-air performer with commodious accommodations.” From the Catalina 34 International Association (www.c34. org).

OLIVER II comes to market as her seller, a 28 year veteran of the USCG is retiring from sailing. He has diligently maintained the vessel, and her extensive tools and spares inventory all convey. Her engine and transmission were installed new in 2009. She is aggressively priced and ready to go.

The Dodger is in Poor Condition and Needs to be Replaced.

The Cockpit Bimini is Serviceable but Near End of Useful Life.

Her Exterior Brightwork Needs Refinishing.
