Re: 1995 Sabre 362 or Catalina 36MkII 2004

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.

Sabre 38 "Victoria"
