2004 Catalina 34 MkII

Palmetto, Florida



For those people who like to race on the West Coast of Florida, Spring Fever is a well-known name. She is the winner of many races and a worthy competitor. I know firsthand because I have raced against her several times. In 2010 she placed 1st in her class in the Sol del Sol Regatta from St. Petersburg, FL to Isla Mujeres, Mexico. She benefited from a knowledgeable owner who took loving care of her and added equipment and other touches that don’t come standard on the normal Catalina 34. If you are looking for a nice cruiser- racer, Spring Fever should be on your list.
