Re: Catalina value

Have your or a brolker bring up what the comporable Cat 36 have sold for in the last 3 years. Not the asking price but the actual selling price. You picked one of the most popular made boats and a good one. There are many good choices

There are many factors which can geatly swing prices of same boats...Faster mentioned some, I will add age of engine and condition, maintainence records, upgrades, rigging, sail newness overall appearence and care of the hull and also the interior.
These are Catlina listings Boats and Yachts for Sale

If you ate settled on the 36 Catalinas...look around the country for the best one. It might pay to have it shipped or delivered,

If this is the boat, it looks ok from a pitcure glance.

Interior looks like it ewill need to livining up and wish there were more pictures. Cradle and winter cover ( which is important where you are) will run you over $4000. They dont list engine hours or the age of the sails. AC/ heat is nice but what year. Electronics is ok...but is old.

This one has upgrades in elctric systems, tall rig, inner forestay, new cushions, davits, radar pole,

This one looks like in better condition and is $10,000 cheaper even if you shipped it its cheaper

This one is very nice...1990 and really low engine hours and in your area. I like it condition best
