Re: Beneteau vs. Catalina - seeking advice / opinions

I can't speak to the Beneteau, but I've had either a 1986 or current 1991 Cat 36 for the past 26 years. You will probably not lose any money over the next 5 years with either. You will enjoy the walk-through transom on the '92 Cat. I can't recall if the '92 has the new MK II interior or not, if it does then you need to pick which one you prefer. I purposely bought a '91 as it seemed to be the last year with that great nav station. You can easily singlehand the Cat 36 and it handles like a long car around the dock, very predictable. Good Luck.

Mike
