catamaran around 160,00"
Is it possible to find a descent cat around 160k? Nothing older than 2000. I love the look and layout of lagoon 380 but I think I would need an extra 100k I just don't have. Any advice,photos,links would be great.

I think that it is possible to find an x charter boat in that range.
your base price purchase will quickly grow as you'll have to bring it into 'safe to sail' then cosmetically 'tolerable'.

You might check out the 'for sale by owner website' There has been some nice catamarans for sale at different times. I am also looking for a similar cat, but maybe in 4 or 5 months. The 36' PDQs are nice, but maybe older than 2000 (and galley down). I so far like the Lagoon 38 and the Fountaine Pajot 35-42s. I trained on a Fountaine Fajot 42 last October, and I really liked it, but the 42s are out of my budget. The galley up feature is nice, and is included in both the Lagoon and Fountaine. Good luck with your search!

Yes it's possible, but it means you have to recognize a deal when you see it and are able to move quickly. These boats don't linger on the market as lots of folks are searching for them.

Older boats like the PDQ and Catalac age gracefully. Boats with cored hulls can be a crap shoot unless you discover the owner kept up with his maintenance.
