Iconic, incredible space and livability

Long Shadow may be the nicest and most updated 381 Catalina on the market today! The iconic Chris Craft Catalina 381 offers incredible space and livability for the boater looking for distinctive looks, strong build quality, and levels of comfort that are easily compared to any land-based dwelling. The yacht would serve equally well as a coastal cruiser, Great Looper, island vacation home, or dockside condo. Long Shadow carries the very rare side galley layout- perfect for live aboard comfort and upgraded amenities through out. Extensive upgrades to hard top and canvas. The owners’ attention to detail is evident in every corner of the boat, from the huge full-beam master stateroom to the stylish bow seating. The boat has been stored indoors and is currently available for inspection in Waukegan.
