Re: Catalina value
We bought an older C36 this last summer. I will second the C36 user association as an incredible resource. Also, a factor for us was location. We spent months looking at boats from Wisconsin, Chicago, and southern Michigan. At the end of the day, we factored all the variables and gladly paid a bit more money for a comparable boat that only required that we moved the boat 4 slips for the delivery, as opposed to finding help sailing one home or getting it delivered.
On a side note, my family absolutely loves our C36, we have been very happy with it.
