38' Catalina 2005 Shenanigans



 "This is a fairly conservative yacht in that styling and configuration are quite traditional, but it is ultra-modern in the sense that the builders are more interested in making the boat effective than following the convention that has dogged yacht design for too long. The modern yacht is comfortable. And increasingly logical." ~ Modern Boating

     Shenanigans is a well cared for Catalina 387. After being sailed along the Maine coast the past years she is ready for new owners and new adventures. Capable of sleeping up to 8 comfortably she is turnkey and ready to cruise this summer.
