Re: Beneteau vs. Catalina - seeking advice / opinions

Hey,

IMHO, you should buy a boat for the sailing you plan on doing TODAY and not 5 years from now. A lot can change in 5 years. Anyway, for your current plans, any of those boats would be fine. If you really think that you'll do long distance sailing a few years, then my advice would be to buy a cheaper boat now. The cheaper boat will have had had more depreciation and will be easier to sell in the future.

Good luck,
Barry
