Here's the only C34 under 30K in yachtworld:

I think you need to re adjust some of your parameters.

A C-34...

A C-34 for 30k will most likely need 30k worth of work. 1986 was the first year of this model and you can expect to pay roughly 44k to 55k depending on condition. Buying a fixer upper saves NO money trust me been there done that. You might want to consider a C-30 if 30k is your top end..

Some things to consider when looking at the bottom end price of any make or model.

Wet Decks = 3k to 30k depending on extent of damage
Standing rigging replacement 1k to 2k
Sails main = $1200.00 to $2500.00 Genny $1500.00 - 3000.00
Electrical system/re-wiring $300.00 - 7.5k
Cutlass bearing - 300.00 to $600.00
Roller Furler - 2k to 3k
Re-Power/Re-build 5k to 20k
Running rigging up to $2k
Blisters 1k to 20k
etc. etc..

no way

Hello,

Echoing what Halekai wrote, I doubt you will find a C354 worth owning for a price in 30's. Last year I was in the market for a 33-36' boat. Catalina 34 was one of my top choices. I didn't find any in my price range (up to $45K). Interestingly enough, there are decent Catalina 36's available for that price, but they will be older (early 80's) and will need new sails, interior cushions, etc.

I ended up buying an O'day 35. I like the O'day because of the swim / boarding platform. You can buy O'day 34's for low 30's, and you may be able to find an O'day 35 for a little more.

Good luck,
Barry

C-34

You did not say what area you are looking in. I have an 86 c-34 in the Chesapeake Bay area I will be selling in the near future. Price will be High 30s. If in that area I will be glad to talk with you. If not I would be glad to answer any questions about the Catalina 34 you may have.

I have an O'day 322 that I would let go in that price range. If you have any interest, PM me for details.

The boat is not really on the market, but I fell in lust with another boat that is currently for sale, so I'm toying with the idea of trying to make a move up. If I could afford to carry both boats I'd buy the other now, but unfortunately, I can only afford one boat at a time. I'd love to be able to move up and avoid being boatless while I found a replacement, so I'd be willing to negotiate while this boat is on the market. I'm thinking $32k or maybe less for a quick sale.

Have you considered a Hunter 34? You can have a mid-80's Hunter 34 easily within your price range that would not need much work. The H34 is a very good value for the money and is a great boat. You will get a lot more bang for your boat buying a 30k H34 versus a 30k C34 IMHO.
