1971 Allied 42 XL

Fall River, Massachusetts


KATANNAH has been redesigned below creating maximum storage space, access and livability. The port pilot berth has been converted to storage lockers and shelves. The quarter berth has also been modified for storage. Below, KATANNAH has an open, light, warm feeling. Her Sparkman & Stephens design is classy and inviting.

KATANNAH has been enjoyed and cruised by her current owners who have constantly upgraded and improved the boat. She is ready for her next cruise be it blue water to the Caribbean islands or a quick hop to the Elizabethan Islands.  She is an easy to sail sloop with plenty of room for family and friends.  Her Classic look engages on admirers in any harbor.  Stop planning, start doing!
