Catalina 30 vs. Hunter 30
I'm currently sailing a 1986 MacGregor 25 and am looking to upgrade next spring or summer to something in the 30 to 33 foot range. My intention is to live aboard and to do mostly coastal cruising off Southern California. I'm looking at the $25k to $35k range and have found the early 90s model Catalina 30 and Hunter 30 to be about the most boat I can get for the price. The two boats appear to be almost identical in size, diplacement, ballast, etc. Does anyone have any experience with either or both of these boats? What are the significant differences between them? Anyone have a preference of one over the other? Thanks for the help.
