Great Catch is a classic 1985 38' Californian convertible.  She offers twin Crusader 350 hp main engines, low-hour Onan generator, wide side decks, large cockpit, Eisenglass enclosed flybridge and a comfortable and functional galley layout.  Her motivated seller has enjoyably fished and cruised the Chesapeake Bay, but he now owns another boat and is ready to end his two-boat ownership status!
