Welcome to Catalina 380 International Association

Welcome to the website for Catalina C380, C387, C385 and C390 Yachts. Note that the site has been optimized for searches so be sure to take advantage of the search field in the right column.

Our owners will find news, photos and technical information about their boats here, and those thinking about owning one will find ample reason to get on over to the dealer. We love our boats!

The Catalina 380 International Association has over 250 members from around the world. Our fleets provide sailing, social and technical support opportunities from coast to coast. Members are encouraged to start new fleets wherever three or more of our boats are close together. We hope you will find this to be a valuable resource, as well as an enjoyable browsing experience. Welcome to our world!

Members receive the quarterly magazine, Mainsheet, the subscription is included in your annual dues. You are encouraged to document your sailing experiences, particularly those in your own boats, and write them up for the magazine. It is a thrill to see your words and pictures in a magazine as attractive as this one.

The Technical Section of the magazine is pre-punched for a three-ring binder, and owners share their improvements here for permanent reference. All these articles are available on this site to C380 International Association members. Volunteer officers, including the captains of the local C380/CM381/C385/C387/C390 fleets, run the association. All members are urged to volunteer for association events and for national, as well as local offices. The more ideas we get from you, the better our association becomes.

We have a lively Discussion Group which is currently hosted by Yahoo Groups at no cost to the Association or the Membership. This is very easy to join and the discussions with other C380 Series Owners are a fantastic resource for tips on sailing, improvements, and maintenance.

*Note that C385s are new to the group so information specific to that model is currently somewhat limited.  On the other hand, the information on other aspects of equipment can be highly useful.

  1. To all you on the north east atlantic seaboard, we hope you all make out well and keep safe. It sure does not look to promising. Hope you have everything tied down. All the best.
    They are calling for the weather to get bad up here on lake ontario but we are fortunate not to be effected by the tide and surge. Glad we are on the hard.

    • Hi Paul

      Just bought a 2001 C380 and was thinking of having some work done by North Shore Boatworks in Bronte. Any thoughts on them?

      • sorry for the delay Jeff,
        i have been getting post to my email and havent went on the site lately.
        As for North Shore Boat Works I cant really help, I dont know any of them there, I am assuming they are located at the inner harbour?
        i usually try and do most of my own reapirs/modifications.
        what type of work you getting done?
        i do know a couple guys that i would highly recommend, mechanical,rigging work not fibreglass. they do some work with others who do that.
        if you are interested I can pass on a name?
