Ok. You already know my answer.

As I've said a few times before, Catalina is a great boat for it's purpose. I worked for 2 dealers and my dad owned 3 Catalinas. I've been offshore in a Catalina 30. I know the brand and know that they're well engineered. "Beefier" is not how a Sabre should be described. The difference is in the fit and finish and to an extent, in the quality of the components. I've owned 2 Sabres, so I know them too.

Visit each boat. If after standing on board each, you still aren't sure which to buy, then buy the Catalina. Age is largely irrelevant in this case.
