Catalina 350
I am in the market for a new Catalina. I keep going back and forth between the 34 MK II and the 36 MK II. To confuse the issue, I just found out Catalina will be introducing the new 350 in February at the Atlanta Boat Show. I have all the specs and it looks beautiful. Should I wait?

You should definitely wait for a better boat than the Benehuntalinas. If you can''t wait for a better boat, pay a surveyor to inspect this boat before you give the dealer cash money. There are many "better boats" out there, why settle for mediocrity?

I have an older (88) Catalina 34. Love it. I think the decision about what you buy should have a lot to do with what kind of sailing you are planning to do. The 34 is great for our use as a couple sailing the waters of Puget Sound and Vancouver Island. I would not necessarily be comfortable taking the boat down the coast. I know that "new" has a lot of allure, but a used,VERY well maintained boat gives you much more value and the owner probably added some nice features along the way.

Thanks for the input but I really have decided to buy new. I am done with projects and do not have much time. The time I have I want to spend sailing and relaxing.
