This 1995 Catalina 36 MkII, Folie A Deux is a very clean and well-cared-for version of the Catalina 36, one of the most popular boats of this size with over 3,000 built between 1982-2006. The original version was replaced in 1995 by the MK II which boasts a larger cockpit for comfort and entertaining and a more roomy and comfortable quarter berth cabin, which is huge!
According to Practical Sailor Magazine, the MK II is aimed at “couples and families who primarily weekend and vacation cruise, but may be planning some extended cruising, they want a boat that is comfortable, offers reasonable performance, and is stable and predictable to handle. The boat suits their budget, and they can add gear for blue water cruising.”
Folie A Deux has been sailed all over the Chesapeake Bay (her winged keel makes much more of the Bay available to you) and is ready to take the next owner to all points on the Chesapeake again, and beyond!!! The Catalina design was and still is prolific in the area, mainly due to its ease of use under power and her expansive use of the boats interior space. This boat will not last long...

The Catalina 36 Tall Rig has two feet additional mast height over the standard rig. With the asymmetric spinnaker, the extra mast height lets the boat carry speed in light wind while not getting over powered in a stiff breeze. We have sailed the boat comfortably in 35+kts wind, double handed. When guests onboard are less comfortable with healing over, we reef at 15kts sustained wind to keep the boat flat. Otherwise we do not even start to think about reefing until 20-25kts sustained wind. The boat is very well balanced and sails beautifully.
One of the standout features of every Catalina 36 is the excellent interior layout. Catalina sailboats built today still use the same basic design. This Catalina 36 is further improved over other 36s by recovering the cushions with light colored fabric, installing overhead waterproof LED lighting, light colored drapery, and a large mural on the bulkhead. This significantly brightens the salon and greatly improves the sense of space in an already spacious design. Most people who come onboard for the first time comment, “Wow, it is way bigger in here than I thought it would be.”
The navigation station was decreased in size and the navigation chair replaced with a storage bench. This additional seating area provides a great place for people to sit while taking shoes on and off, while providing a great storage area for large frequently needed items, such as life jackets. This simple piece of cabinetry was a game changer for interior organization and tidiness.
In colder seasons, the interior is kept warm with a Webasto DBW-2010 hydronic heater. Each room of the boat has its own thermostat and heat exchanger.
