This time we are going to discover one of the latest models of one of the most famous shipyards of the stars and stripes. We’re talking about Chris Craft and the new Catalina 27 Pilot House, a model that completes the brand’s center console range downwards. This 8 meters is in fact the smallest of the Catalina family and is immediately behind the 30 and 34 feet.
Presented last year, this model perfectly embodies the style and philosophy that have made the brand a worldwide reference in the nautical sector.
The new Chris Craft Catalina 27 Pilot House embraces the concept of the center console. The hull measures just over 8 meters in length, has a maximum beam of 2.64 meters, and can comfortably accommodate up to seven people on board. Despite the small size, the high quality of the edge finishes stand out, also accentuated by extensive use of teak. The helm station design has been completely revised, highlighting a more contemporary design as well as that of the T-top which guarantees effective shelter.
A small toilet is positioned behind the sofa, close to the steering console. The bow area is the hub of social life on board.
As for the engine, there are two options available: twin Yamaha outboards, 225 hp each, or a single Yamaha 425 HP engine.
