The association is looking for volunteers to serve as the Membership Director and Technical Editors for each of the Catalina models. If you are interested in serving, contact the Commodore for details.
From the past 50 years, and to the next 50, Catalina is devoted to providing owners and dealers with quality and value that has made Catalina America's largest sailboat builder.
Frank Butler's vision and philosophy carries forward with Sharon Day, who worked alongside Frank for 48 years, at the helm of a veteran leadership team.
THANK YOU to all our dealers and owners for your continued business and support. We couldn't do it without you.

As Commodore, and on behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to say hello and welcome you to our website. The Association was formed in 2021 when the International Catalina 400/445 Association, the International Catalina 42/425 Association and the International Catalina 440 Association merged.
The Association is an important part of the Catalina community, providing social, technical and educational opportunities for its members.
There is always an instant and easy camaraderie and pride among Catalina owners beyond the boats and cruising plans. Most of us have previously had one or more smaller boats, have been sailing a long time and have enjoyed other boating associations.
The purpose of the Association is:
We welcome you to join the Association, your contributions will help greatly in the success of our Association. We value our members and want you to feel like a part of our sailing family.
As a member you will automatically receive a subscription to the Catalina owners' magazine MainSheet, of which we are justifiably proud. We will send occasional mailings as well, including miscellaneous announcements and registration forms for Association meetings, rendezvouz and regattas.
Feel free to contact us at any time for any information you need. We are always eager to help. We are receptive to new ideas and would be happy to hear from you. Don't hesitate to contact any of us by way of our email addresses in this C4S website!
Commodore John "Hoop" Hooper
