The Catalina 385 is the third design from Gerry Douglas in what has become known as the "5 Series" and "MARBLEHEAD" is an excellent example of the design. With countless features often found on much larger boats, including safety, creature comfort and sailing ability, the Catalina 5 Series models are heads and shoulders above the competition. "MARBLEHEAD" was ordered and built for these owners with numerous factory, dealer and owner added options including but not limited to: full batten mainsail, additional sail inventory, comprehensive electronics, reverse cycle air conditioning, separate refrigeration and freezer, Ultraleather interior and more. In keeping with the Seller's preventative maintenance schedule, in 12/2016 the entire exterior was waxed and polished, all stainless steel polished. In 1/2017 the Seller's made a substantial price reduction, making "MARBLEHEAD" an even more attractive offering. Ready to sail at a moment's notice, don't miss this excellent opportunity.

The Catalina 385 has a very accommodating 2-cabin interior layout. The owner's cabin is forward with a centerline queen berth forward, hanging locker to starboard and small vanity with seat to port.

The port side of the salon features an L-shaped settee with an up/down dinette table that opens and closes, to be larger or smaller. Further aft is the aft-facing nav. station. Opposite to starboard is a straight bench settee whereby the middle section may be raised and turns into a small table for two. Next aft is the very accommodating galley. Aft of the nav. station is the guest cabin with athwartship queen berth, hanging locker and small seat. The interior is done in solid and veneer teak, finished in a satin varnish, and the cabin sole is a slightly textured "teak & holly" composite laminate.
