Re: Catalina model specification guide?
Our 1984 Catalina 25 came with the original receipt that had the full options list at delivery time. I looked at it a couple of times out of curiosity, but it wasn't very useful.
$5500 is on the high side, but might be reasonable if the boat has a new engine, all new standing and running rigging, a good sail inventory with new sails, recent bottom paint, new cushions, a healthy set of electronics, and includes a lot of accessories (PFDs, dinghy, etc).
One can easily spend a lot more than $5500 on a $1500 Catalina 22 by fixing all of those issues. Finding a boat where all of that work has been done will often save money compared to buying a cheap boat that needs all of the work.
