Catalina vs Hunter

As I have mentioned before, I went through a search with a friend who was looking at similar year and size Hunters and Catalinas. Generally the Hunters seemed to hold up better. I spoke to a number of very experienced surveyors who indicated that used Hunters generally did better in surveys. Of the big three builders, I personally prefer Beneteau First Series hands down on sailing ability and build quality with Catalinas a clear third place.

Respectfully,
Jeff
