It is a good starter model boat for several reasons. For one thing Catalina is still in business and some parts are probably still available for it. Having a trailer sailor reduces marina/club/storage fees and allows more mobility.
On any boat that old (1972) you should carefully check the chain plates and check the deck for soft spots.
Enjoy.
