1990 Catalina 42' (12.80 m) 42
Warwick, Rhode Island, United States
- Fiberglass Hull
"Sea Squatch" (previously Nereiad) is the three cabin Pullman version of one of the most popular cruisers ever built. This layout is popular, practical, spacious, quick and beautiful to look at. She is very well equipped and ready to cruise. You should consider this boat if you need to cruise with speed, comfort and the privacy 3 cabins afford. Please see the full specifications for more information and photos.
Please note: Sea Squatch has been on land for 3 years. This winter the fuel was drained, the injector pump was rebuilt, new injectors installed and engine tested. The interior photos are accurate and the topsides need serious cleaning.
Keep in mind also that RI does not have a sales or use tax on boats.
The Catalina 42 Three Cabin Pullman model offers two staterooms aft and the traditional placement of the owners’ stateroom and spacious head forward with stall shower.
The Catalina 42 has earned an international reputation as the leader in her class. Design, cruising performance, and comfort, all make the Catalina 42 the first choice of sailors worldwide. The hull of the 42 is high volume, and easily driven, with a fine entry, firm midship section, and smooth run aft terminating in a modified reverse transom with an uncommonly spacious and functional boarding platform. Featuring varnished teak joinery, ash hull side paneling, excellent light and ventilation.

What Reviews Say:
It's a handsome boat. The bow is raked just enough to give it a clean entry and still maintain a relatively long LWL of 36 feet. There is enough of a forefoot to keep the bow from pounding, at least most of the time. The hull flares quickly but the wide, 13-foot, 10-inch beam is nicely absorbed into the overall flow of the boat. The beam is carried well aft, providing space for double aft cabins and a roomy cockpit, yet it doesn't seem excessive like many of today's boats.
The 42 is rigged as a sloop with slightly swept-back double spreaders. The working sail area is just under 800 square feet. The design displacement is 18,000 pounds, translating into a respectable SA/D of 18.5. The 42 came with two keel arrangements: shoal draft wing and fin. We prefer the 6' fin keel version because it tracks better.
The hull is solid fiberglass, reinforced with a molded liner that incorporates the cabin sole and furniture facings. Liners are an efficient way to build a boat, and when done well, they provide more than adequate structural support. The deck is cored with balsa except in areas that support hardware where one-half inch plywood is used instead. This isn't the best method of backing up hardware. The hull and deck are joined on a flange and includes stainless steel fasteners and 3M 5200. Catalina has always used lead ballast. The interior finish work is nicely executed.

I have spent most of my life on and around boats beginning as a young child, learning to sail Sunfish and Hobie Cats, driving on my Dad’s lap in a classic mahogany lake boat, and cruising the Jersey shore with my parents and brothers aboard our 36ft Chris Craft. After moving to New England I continued to seek the boating life with my own family and owned a variety of sail and power boats that brought me cherished times with friends and family.
Drawing on my experiences over the past 25 years developing and selling theme park and water park attractions across the globe as well as my background as a Psychologist, I decided to pursue my lifelong passion to work in the marine industry. Being a customer of Brewer Yacht Sales over the years, I have seen the professionalism and quality of the team and am happy to join them as a broker.
In addition to being an avid and experienced boater, I am a careful listener and an astute negotiator- both skills that I look forward to putting to work to help my clients find and secure the perfect boat for their needs and lifestyle, or sell when it comes time.
