Interior
Six berths in 3 doubles. The owners suite is forward and features an en-suite head and shower. The mattress is over 6ft 8 inches long and is inner sprung, it also raises at the head of the bed using an electric ram. In addition to the huge amount of storage under the berth, there is a large hanging locker and vanity with mirror. This owners stateroom is very well appointed comfortable and practical for live aboard sailors.
The two identical sized aft cabins are generous in size and can comfortably sleep an adult couple in a well lit and ventilated cabin. The configuration of this Catalina 425 allows for accommodation to starboard and its cabin is outfitted with an inner sprung mattress, under bunk storage and an ample sized hanging locker. The cabin to port is setup as a utility cabin and is used for storage and systems access. Large hatches provide access to the engine room, the battery charger, hot water tank, steering, rear of the engine, gearbox and stern gland. This systems access is immensely practical and should be found on every good cruising boat. The utility (storage) cabin can be accessed by the large gullwing hatch on deck allowing access from the cockpit. 
The Saloon has U-shaped seating to port where 8 people can dine around the highly varnished teak table. The table has folding leaves and the telescopic leg allows it to lower to form a huge bed. Opposite the dining area are two captains chairs either side of the chart table. Under seat storage is found beneath the seats both to port and starboard and beautiful teak lockers run the length of the saloon on both sides.
The galley is both safe and functional- a must for any blue water cruising boat.The storage is cavernous but arranged such that access is easy. There is a large fridge with freezer compartment and a separate freezer within easy reach of the chef. A microwave oven is situated above the stove and flanked by two deep dry stowage lockers. Next to the oven is a huge dry storage bin and is supplemented by under counter cutlery

Rigging and Sail Handling
Oversized standing rigging with slightly swept back double spreaders terminate to inboard ball and socket chainplates. This minimizes maintenance, allows for wide and unobstructed weather decks and best of all allows for excellent sheeting angles even with large headsails like Silver Girls Code 0. The genoa tracks are long and class leading, they run back to the oversized 55 sized primary winches at the helm.
Garhauer blocks, selden headsail furler, Selden -in mast furler with ratchet mechanism for safe and controlled reefing.
Electric Lewmar 45 halyard (reefing) winche on the starboard coach roof.
Manual Lewmar 45 winch on port side coach roof.
A large Garhauer mainsheet traveller is adjustable from the cockpit as is the rigid boom vang. 
The Mainsheet and Jib sheet are led back to the helm, so tacking and gybing Silver Girl can be done easily by one person while sat at the helm. The self tacking Jib, furling main and Code 0 make this an versatile, but simple boat to sail.

Steering
Twin destroyer wheels are mounted to offset Edson pedestals, this allows the helms-person to stretch their legs out forward (not always possible on every twin helm boat)
Chain and sprocket from pedestals are connected to via steering cables to the steering quadrant on a single "Deep Defence Rudder"
The Deep Defense Rudder is a Catalina design that protects the rudder stock in the event of a collision. The bottom third of the rudder will break away maintaining the integrity of the rudder stock and leaving two thirds of the rudder to get you home.
The rudder also features a major and minor mold. The two pieces of the rudder are not joined in the center of the leading edge which is prone to collision and cracking. This greatly increases the durability of the rudder. 

Radar Arch and Davits
Custom radar arch was fabricated from aluminium and powder coated white. This structure was designed to accommodate two large solar panels sufficient to render Silver Girl 2 completely self sufficient either on passage at anchor or even while docked. 
Two 315 watt monocrystalline panels charge the batteries via a Victron MPPT regulator.
The arch incorporated lifting davits and easily and safely stores the dinghy.
 
 

Cockpit Table

The table has two secure handrails adding to the safety of the cockpit.
