Re: Catalina 42 ... Why not?
The sky is not the limit with a purchase price of around $100k with maybe $50k for upgrades. The primary criteria is coastal US and Caribbean with maybe once across and back to cruise a bit of Europe.
Not sure you'd find a MKII in that range... if you did it would probably need all of that $50K in putting it right. But the MKIs aren't that different, I don't think.. mainly in the look/deck and the cockpit.
