Kingston, ON, CA



The Catalina 28 combines the classic styling with the most desirable modern sailboat features, such as a wing keel, a walk-through transom, a stern boarding platform, and comfortable, ergonomic cockpit seats and coamings. The Catalina 28 is perfect for cruising, with numerous extra touches to make your cruise easier and more pleasant.

The roomy cockpit is comfortable as well as functional with long cockpit bench seats and very comfortable coamings. The steering pedestal includes engine controls, compass, wheel brake, and an engine panel with gauges, alarm, and tachometer. Roomy lazarette storage compartments are found under the cockpit seats. After a refreshing swim while at anchor, you're sure to appreciate the walk-through transom that makes it easy to board the boat from the stern.

All sail controls, including the single-line reefing system, lead to the cockpit, making it easy and safe to handle the sails and rigging. The masthead with a single spreader and fore and aft lower shrouds allows the use of powerful headsails and narrow angle sheeting for good performance to windward. The self-tailing winch for the mainsheet and main halyard, along with 2 self-tailing primary winches, plus roller furling headsail, boom vang, and internal topping lift give you almost effortless control over all aspects of sail trimming.

The main cabin is warm and inviting, with teak and ash finishes throughout and lots of natural light and ventilation through hatches and ports. The galley and head are located aft for convenience to the cockpit. The galley has durable, one-piece molded countertops, a gimbaled stainless steel stove, and separate lockers for utensils, pans, and dry food. Generous headroom and extra-long berths provide a comfortable space even for taller sailors.

MADELEINE is the perfect weekender or vacation retreat for a young family or a retired couple. She has very pretty lines, easy access everywhere and is a joy to sail.



Thank you for all your work in facilitating the sale of our dad's boat. Jake and I really appreciate all the hard work you put into it with the many visits, paperwork, etc. A special mention has to go out to Grant for teaching me how to fold the sails!

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
