Looks like a good deal. For a 1990 model initial price is about right especially with all that is on it. I wonder why the mast and boom where replaced along with all the running rig. I would ask if the boat was damaged somehow. Unusual for a Catalina 30 in that era of boat to have that replaced. If so look out for moisture in the cabin roof. They are very prone to it. Also look at the bulkhead where the chainplates are. Make sure there is no evidence of water leaks or plywood delamination.

The boat looks like it's in very good condition - almost too good condition...
The ad states that there has been major work on the drive system and the rigging. This makes me wonder if this is a hurricane boat (damaged in hurricane and refit). Not necessarily a reason to NOT buy it. but something you want to check out. If it came frrom out of state, there is a fair possibility that this is the case.

See if you can trace back ownership, either through the current owner, or through Boatfax or something...

Wow! Thanks for the info.

Broker said single owner and that owner decided to replace standing rigging and mast and boom (rather than just re-paint). Also, he said that standing rigging typically needs replacement at around 15 years. Owner moved out of state, forcing sale.

I punched that HIN into boatfax and it came up as an Island Packet. Hmmm.

Traditional Watercraft IS Island Packets.

Weird. I don't know the HIN, but the vessel name is correct. I just used the HIN sailusvi provided.

Are you suggesting that Island Packet built this Catalina 30?

I'm not aware that Catalina had any arrangement for IPY to build their boats for them. I think more than likely the vessel name is incorrect or this vessel simply is not documented and you are looking at the information for another vessel with the same name.

The boat is a different boat...look at length and depth...it is not a C30. Same name...different boat.
