Platypus is a Catalina 28 now exclusively for sale with the team at YOTI.

Launched in 1994, this is a very well kept example with some important updates. The Catalina 28 is a great example of a well-loved pocket cruiser and arguably the most spacious example of a yacht of this size. Catalina's are known for their solid build, spacious living quarters and smooth comfortable sailing. Catalina is the most widely respected brand of this size yacht in the country and once on board it's easy to see why.

Platypus has enjoyed regular maintenance with full anti-foul and topside polish just being completed in February 2020. The engine was rebuilt in 2010. The covers (dodger with clears cover, bimini and link sheet) and cockpit cushions were all replaced new in 2019. Sails include the battened mainsail (2017) and furling genoa (2016) both by Ian Short and an MPS (2015). A brand new Furler was installed in just September 2019.

The autohelm, furling genoa, electric windlass, self-tailing winches and superior visibility make shorthanded sailing easy. Her cockpit allows for the whole family or friends to sit comfortably around the beautifully varnished custom cockpit table and there is a walkway to the transom swim platform and BBQ area.

Below decks Platypus offers a lot more room than the average 28ftr allowing six guests to sleep aboard. Hot water, holding tank, cockpit shower and deep refrigerator all make for comfortable cruising. This is a two cabin layout with a substantial galley and a fully enclosed head and shower.

This is a very well kept cruiser with a surprising amount of space on board from one of the world's most respected manufacturers. Her owner has managed the yacht for long term ownership and Platypus is only offered for sale due to an unexpected opportunity that has taken the owner in another direction.
