Catalina Yachts Acquires True North


Sailboat manufacturer Catalina Yachts is the new owner of True North Yachts. The company has built Downeast-style powerboats for 30 years and is known for infusion technology with lighter and stronger hulls. The True North 34, True North 34 Outboard Express and True North 38 will now be built in the Catalina Yachts plant in Largo, Florida.

“We have been talking with dealers and owners while strategizing which configuration of boats to market first, and find the True North line is a brand that appeals to sailors, making it a good fit for Catalina Yachts,” says Sharon Day, vice president of sales and marketing. “This is yet another pivotal moment in Catalina’s 50 years of boatbuilding. Our entire management team is excited to provide more boating lifestyle choices to mariners attracted to the sea and Catalina craftmanship.”
