Re: Catalina 320 vs Hunter 336

When it comes to sailing ability the Catalina wins. Double spreader rig, narrow shroud base, masthead rig versus B&R rig fractional with swept back spreaders and no backstay. If the 320 has a conventional fin keel there is no comparison sailing upwind with these 2 boats. Reaching is about equal with the Catalina sailing considerably better with deep wind angles especially wing and wing. OTOH- if you are looking for dock queen/cottage the Hunter might be a better fit.
