Consider this: the Catalina has an installed base of more than 7,000. The manufacturer is still in business. There are a few parts suppliers who do nothing but specialize in the brand (viz. Catalina Direct in Sacramento).

Own an older boat for a few years and you'll see that parts availability can be an issue.
