The boat was built by Catalina Yachts in the United States, between 1978 and 1994, but it is now out of production. It was the most popular sailboat in this size range ever built in the US, with 5866 examples completed.
The Catalina 25 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig, a transom-hung rudder and a fixed fin keel, winged keel or optional centerboard. It displaces 4,550 lb (2,064 kg) and carries 1,900 lb (862 kg) of ballast.
The boat has a draft of 4.00 ft (1.22 m) with the standard keel fitted and 2.83 ft (0.86 m) with the optional wing keel.
The centreboard version has a draft of 5.00 ft (1.52 m) with the centreboard extended and 2.00 ft (0.61 m) with it retracted into the stub keel, allowing ground transportation on a trailer. There was also a tall rig version with a mast about 2.00 ft (0.61 m) higher.
Internal accommodations came in two versions, one with a "traditional" double bench sofa and the other a "dinette" table arrangement. There was a forward "V" berth and a double berth under the cockpit.
