Hi everyone -- I tried to post this but I had a bad link in the message so I am trying again -- The Catalina 27 would make a great starting boat for any beginning cruiser, and we would like to see it go to someone that is interested in the cruising lifestyle. This boat is in great shape -- We bought it for $10,000 3 yrs ago and put a lot of work in to her and at least $4000 worth of new stuff -- adding an autopilot, new sails, boom kicker, a new head etc. The Beta motor has low hours (200), runs great, and has been serviced regularly. No blisters -- boat has been barrier coated, and then bottom painted every year.
Boat is now for sale as we bought a larger boat for our growing family, and I am sad to see it go. The low price reflects the fact that we need it out of the marina by April -- which is when the winter storage lapses. We would like to avoid being in a position to pay double for having two boats in the marina.
I can send more pics to anyone interested, but here is the data:
Catalina 27 , 1982.
Previous 2 owners pampered this boat with lots of goodies. Yard kept, professionally maintained. In the past 10 years, the has had: New Beta 14 engine [ based on Kubota diesel ] professionally installed. She is very clean, complete, ready to sail, and in excellent condition. She is "turn key" and ready to sail away for new adventures with her new owner. We are moving up to a bigger boat, that is the reason for selling. She is priced well below market value, for a quick sale.
Standard layout includes v-berth, private head with marine toilet (2011) and sink, hanging locker to port, large fold down bulkhead mounted table, double- berth to starboard, single berth to port, large quarter berth to starboard, full galley to port.
