1980 Catalina 25
SV ‘Heartbeat USA” is for sale:
In great functioning condition all over. Minor cosmetic and surface issues...
Heartbeat hails from Port Washington, where she became available at the end of last season. Since, she has motored and sailed all the way to the South Shore where she overwintered, and back from Island Park to Northport where she is now accepting offers. Her new Olympus Head Sail and Harken furler are a delight, with UV sunbrella foot and wrap. The mainsail is newer and stiff with battens. All sheets and halyards are in fair or good condition, and the tackle all works well. An adjustable back stay, powerful boom vang, and solid traveler are all extra and new condition.
A Tohatsu 6 raises and lowers effortlessly on a stainless adjustable motor bracket. It fought Hell Gate and the open Atlantic twice over winter and started on the 3rd pull every time, even below freezing. The best little outboard I’ve seen in a while, pushing her at a solid 5 kts.
Brand new Jabsco pumping raw water head works perfectly, new holding tank and hoses, y valve and bilge are clean and effortless. Two sinks in head and galley drain easily, and a new fresh water tank holds 20 gallons. A gimbaled, pressurized alcohol stove has two functioning burners, and easily cooked hamburgers and hotdogs for 4ppl. The ice box keeps a lower chamber and upper shelf dry and separate, and drains easily for cleaning and melting. Standing headroom in galley with companionway hatch open and lower cabin sole section makes for easy comfort. 30 g/m bilge pump drains bilge on command. V berth is dry and comfortable for sleep. Quarterberth on starboard is huge and perfect for luggage and sleep. No odors. Storage is abundant. As generous as a 30’! Huge interior stowage under adjustable port side table, which converts to a double berth, and massive port side lazarette in cockpit. Either can hold a full size propane tank, large bulky items. Clean V berth stowage is free of tanks and bladders. Forepeak plus deck top anchor locker. Two anchors with chain and rode on board. All through hulls are in solid, non-corroded, dry condition with all valves working perfectly.
Garmin GPS chart plotter and horizon digital radio function perfectly, DEPTH sounder is on same, color multi screen.
Tiller and motor work in concert for easy maneuvering.
Sailing ‘Heartbeat USA’ and navigating the passageways and bridges of the SouthWestern Long Island has been a pleasure. She is a safe and easy boat for a family or couple to enjoy.
