Need opinions on sailboats less than 24 feet
My partner and I own a 24' x 8'6" slip at Lake Tahoe. We have sailed a 1976 Catalina 22 for 30 years, and we are looking to replace it. We looked at a Catalina 25, but with the motor it sticks out of the slip over 2', and we are only allowed to stick out 12".
Can anyone recommend a boat that will fit in the slip and is comparable to or better than our old C22? I loved the C22, but my partner wants something bigger. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. We're looking to spend around $15,000, so a pre-owned boat is probably in our future.
We mostly day sail, with the occasional overnight. Our season is 5 months max.
