Beneteau vs. Catalina - seeking advice / opinions
My husband and I saw three very well-taken care of boats this weekend (looking for our first boat): A '99 Beneteau 352, a '92 Catalina 36', and an '87 Catalina 36'. The Beneteau is considerably more expensive (obviously!). Our plan is weekend sailing and short summer cruising on the Great Lakes (primarily Lake Michigan) for five years or so, and then on to longer adventures. We would appreciate seasoned insight into making this decision.
