Re: 1995 Sabre 362 or Catalina 36MkII 2004

Catalinas are fine boats. I've owned and chartered them for years- Built for practicality and functionality. Easy to work on & maintain. However last summer in downeast Maine I sailed a Sabre 362 for 2 weeks (out of Johanson Boatworks). She was a *fine* sailboat- lovely to sail, sweet lines, with a beautifully finished interior. In terms of finish there is no comparison. My *only* complaint with the Sabre are the fingerhole latches they use on the cabinet doors. (Too small and not very ergonomic to me.) Be warned that if you buy the Sabre, many people will want to come and check it out.
