Sail alone — or take the family.


  • Comfortable and Roomy

    Wide-body with bench seating helps passengers feel comfortable right away. No thwart, and no centerboard well protruding into the cockpit, so she's clean to move around in. Her freestanding mast means no cables to get in the way, and with no jib, there's no unnecessary deck clutter either. Her high, Hoyt boom provides you and your passengers plenty of headroom whether you're sailing or lunching.

  • Power You Control

    Catalina Expo 14.2 furling sailNot only does her SmartRig® make set-up time minutes, it allows her mainsail to be rolled up in seconds. Quickly and easily adjust it to any size, to keep her under control always. Her carbon fiber mast is light and strong, and being tapered, there's less weight up high, increasing stability. It will flex and spill wind in a gust, so capsizing is something your passengers may never experience.

  • Convenience and Versatility

    Her front hatch is in easy reach, and tucked inside is a portable cooler. Her cockpit self-bails by gravity, so you'll never have to drain her. Optional motor mount aand motor allow you to putt-putt at will. Add a swim ladder to her transom, furl sail, and let the kids splash and play all they want.

  • Proven Design

    Based on the successful Catalina 14.2, the Expo 14.2 with her so-easy-to-use SmartRig®, is attracting new people to the sport of sailing. A whole new generation is learning how much fun sailing can be.

  • Low Maintenance

    Rounded fiberglass everywhere with no crevices to collect dirt. Even her centerboard and rudder blade are fiberglass. Her sail is durable Dacron and when it's rolled up, UV resistant panels on the outer edges protect the colored cloth from the sun.
