Catalina Island was once an exclusive hideaway for some of the most iconic names of Hollywood’s heyday. It still remains a tantalizing travel destination for visitors across the globe to this day.
The island is only reachable by boat (or helicopter if you prefer to go that route). It serves as a popular day trip for residents of California’s southern coast given the proximity. Those who prefer to spend more days depending on their schedules can easily moor a vessel as well.
You may feel transported to a different part of the world as you approach the island. Parallels could be drawn to the Greek Islands or somewhere in the Mediterranean, but this land is very much a key piece of American history.
Food & Drink:
Why does Volvo Penta appeal to boaters in Catalina Island?
The Volvo Penta IPS offers impressive fuel economy, with a possible consumption reduction of 30% when cruising compared to inboard shafts. The savings adds up when you’re cruising the Pacific or traveling “26 miles across the sea” as Frank Sinatra sang about in an ode to Catalina.
Low Noise Levels:
When you’re traveling with friends and family, you want to be able to enjoy the conversation and not feel distracted by engine noise. The forward-facing design of the Volvo Penta IPS keeps engine noise to a minimum and comfort levels to a maximum.
