Want to buy Capri 14.2 or Performance 15

I am interested in buying a used Catalina Capri 14.2 or Performance 15. Having a difficult time finding something close to home that is reasonably well maintained.

Possibly interested in a similar sailboat. My key criteria is that total length including trailer is less than 20'. Whatever I buy has to fit in my garage.

I am in Houston, Texas.

Thank you.

A similar boat is the Lido 14, check the interweb for owners associations, often the best source for one designs. When I was a kid I cut a little door in the tilt up garage door for the mast to stick thru.

capttb - Nice looking but quite a bit more than I was hoping to spend. Also, that is quite far.

Re: Want to buy Capri 14.2 or Performance 15

Um, I've not heard of the Performance 15. Is it perhaps a Precision 15?

The Capri 14.2 is a great little starter boat. Forgiving, light, easy to trailer, but still has a crude traveler, mainsheet, vang, and basic jib sheets and cleats. Boat will plane over 12 knots wind with 1 person in it, especially downhill... with 2 in it, it'll take closer to 18 knots of wind, and when you steer up in that kind of wind, you'll be struggling to keep it flat.

Overall a pretty lively boat, while still being pretty easy to keep dry... it'll punish you quickly if you don't move to keep it flat. Fast learning curve no that boat.

If we are talking Precision 15, that's a pretty equivalent boat to the Capri 14.2. Really a Ford versus Chevy argument, both are pretty even boats, I think the Precision 15 is slightly faster.
Also it should be noted that both the Capri 14.2 and Precision 15 come in centerboard (common) and keel (mostly sold to training schools) models.

Re: Want to buy Capri 14.2 or Performance 15

So I just found another boat that I can't seem to find much information about.

Monark (Monarch?) 14

I have done about 30 minutes of searching and cannot seem to find much about this boat.

The photo does not show the jib, but I am told it has one.
