You might expect your average fishboat to be a gore-splattered, rough-and-tumble center console with plain-Jane looks, but the Catalina 26 shows that Chris-Craft doesn’t agree. This is one angling machine that’s packed with panache, served up with style, and engineered with elegance. If you’re looking for a 26-foot center console that lets you cast with class and go fishing with a flair, then smart money says the Catalina is going to make your short-list.
What sets the Catalina 26 apart from other high-end fishboats? For starters, teak. And lots of it. The foredeck, transom, helm, console, and gunwale caps all feature solid teak accents and decking. It blends into the boat’s rounded lines, which have a retro-modern look that’s unique to Chris-Craft.
Of course, you can’t look stylish if you’re not comfortable. No worries on that count; the Catalina has cushy features like dual-density foam cushions, ladder-back helm seats with armrests, and a fully enclosed head console. (Trailer available at additional cost)
