"Thunderchild"

2014 Catalina 445 hull # 99

offered at $359,000

 Bristol Condition  

This is a special boat! Her very knowledgeable and experienced owners have spared no expense in maintaining "Thunderchild". She is absolutely stunning and ready for her new owners!

The Catalina 445 is a cruiser's dream! Sailing Magazine describes her best: “The owner's cabin is forward with its own head, including a built-in shower... The bunk in the owner's cabin tilts up to about 45 degrees at the head end using a rocker switch.

The guest cabin is aft on the starboard side and offers access to the second head through one of its two doors. Access to midship head can also be made through a door aft of the nav station at the base of the companionway ladder.

The third "flex cabin"  is a convertible space that can serve as a multi-berth cabin, a sail storage locker (accessible from the cockpit) or a workbench area.” Cruising World said: "Simply put, as a sometimes racer or an all-the-time cruiser, the new boat from Catalina is one that you'll enjoy spending time aboard."

S/V "Thunderchild" presents in bristol condition with only 761 hours on her Yanmar  engine. This is a lightly used 1.1 owner boat. She was commissioned by her first owner in 2014. She made one short trip, then sat for a year until 2015 when she was purchased by her current, very experienced and accomplished owners who previously cruised the Mediterranean aboard their 52 ft cruiser.

Manufacturer Provided Description

 

With over 150 hulls sold, this is the mid 40 foot boat to have! Nothing compares to the versatility of the 445 layout. Catalina incorporates crisp, contemporary styling with proportions and features that make their designs comfortable and secure underway and on the hook.

 

Based on a hull design with a long waterline and moderate beam and freeboard, the 445 has excellent performance potential. The hull form is optimized to provide the gentle, predictable motion underway, which is so appreciated in other Catalina models. 

 

The deck is strikingly handsome with a low profile cabin structure, twin helm stations and a roomy cockpit with tall, secure comfortable coamings and a cockpit table that seats 4-6. The deck is finished with a traditional diamond-patterned non-skid.

 

The owner's cabin is forward for privacy and optimum ventilation. There is private head access from the forward cabin along with an electric toilet and separate shower.

The guest cabin is aft to starboard with a large comfortable double berth, angled for easy access and greater headroom. 

 

Aft and to port is an innovative Flex cabin. This flexible space can easily be converted to whatever your cruising style dictates at the time, whether it be sleeping quarters, storage or a work room with a bench. 

 

The galley has the storage and features needed for extended cruising, including an additional refrigeration/freezer unit as well as custom storage for cookware.

Accommodations

 

The spacious, versatile and comfortable interior layout of Thunderchild is perfect to use as a live-a-board, for cruising with family and friends and for a couple who is ready to set off on a sailing adventure. 

Starting forward, the master stateroom is large with a centerline, double berth that has a comfortable mattress.  The head of the berth can be raised up for reading in bed or watching TV. Storage, light and ventilation are plentiful in this well laid-out cabin.  There is private access to a large, port-side head with a separate shower with seat.

Moving aft into the salon, there are two starboard side seats with a small cocktail/game table between them which can be lowered to form a single berth or settee.  A large, U-shaped settee with a dining table is directly across from the seats. The large dining table folds to cocktail size and also lowers to form an extra double berth. In addition, there is abundant storage below all the main cabin seating.

Continuing aft on the starboard side, you will find a nav station with a forward facing chart table. The table is designed to accommodate a computer and has drawers and a file drawer below. 

Directly aft of the nav station is the guest head which has dual entrances from both the salon and the aft guest stateroom. It is also conveniently located next to the companionway stairs for easy access from the cockpit.

Just aft of the guest head is the large, guest stateroom. This cabin has a double berth with a comfortable mattress. The berth is angled to provide increased headroom, ventilation and storage space.

Back in the salon, there is a spacious L-shaped galley on the port side of the companionway stairs. Just aft of the galley is an innovative cabin on the port side. This is a flexible space that can easily be converted to meet your cruising needs without tools or additional parts. The cabin can be used as an additional guest cabin with either a double berth or upper and lower singles. When not needed for guests, it can be converted to a locker with work bench and storage bins.
