Yes, quite sure.

For some reason, Beneteau enjoys a reputation (by some) that their boats are a "step up" from a Catalina, when in fact they are generally a bit less expensive. If nothing else, Beneteaus use cast iron keels, vs lead on the Catalinas. I also bought a Catalina because the cabin joinery and deck hardware were superior to that of the Beneteau.
