Local dealer has one of these coming in. Wish it would have been a 35 personally.....

I also noticed the other day on Catalina's web site, the new 355 is up and being shown, for a floor plan etc.

Sorry Marty, but I really don't like that one. I am sure it is well built and all, but the design is....old.

Compare it with the competition, the two Oceanis that are in between, the 34 and the 37 and remember that the 37 will cost probably less than the Catalina 355. The Catalina does not even have a bulb, for maximizing ballast and therefore will need a lot more weight on the ballast, making it a heavier and slower boat.

Those Oceanis are designed by Finot and specially the 37 is a very good design.

Just compare the drawings:



Regards

Paulo

paulo,

I never said the c355 floated my boat per say. It is oldish shoe'ish in design, and will be slower per say than the Bene or Jeaneau equals. It did seem heavy at 12K or so lbs. with a bunch in the keel. I am sure if he had done a bulb, he could have lowered that amount by 1000 lbs or so, and had a much faster boat, along with more stable etc.

Well, I am relieved
By the way have a better look at the Oceanis 34. It is a good design, not a slow sailboat and with a great interior (the 37 is even better).

Paulo,

Saw the first one, (sold) at the seattle boat show a week or so ago. I will say it was nice, altho me personally, not quite what I want. Spouse who was not with me, might like it. The one I saw had the dark teak?!?! interior, which she purr's in those interiors. For me, freeboard, head room seemed a bit too much. Altho at 6' myself, it is nice to standup pretty much thru out vs very little area in my current boat that I can stand up in.

I think I have been on a 37 too, but will not quote myself. The dealer also had a 31 in stock at the show too. The 34 is nicer for what I would need size comfort etc. The overall how I sail etc, the 1st35 would probably be the better option.

Marty

Now you guys know all too well that I adore the Luffes. Deck Saloon or no deck saloon they are utterly utterly gorgeous, positively orgasmic. I most certainly would if I could.

Not convinced about the Benny though Paulo. All too racey for my tastes. Inadequate looking galley, blah blah blah.

Catching up on my reading here guys. Sorry, but I've been a bit busy elsewhere of late. I'll try to pay better attention in the future.

You Fuzzy was a bear!

If you were not SOOOOOOO worried about filling up your brain with them solar cells, you would have time to worry about the nonsensical something or other that is going on here!

Much better to have a single brain cell than many, leave that to the spousal female unit. Less is better for us male types!

I know that one is not for you, but I like it fast and if I have not the money for a fast boat with a nice looking interior, I am prepared to make some compromises.

However the First 40 has a functional interior with a relatively big freezer and a good galley. I have been already inside one and I can tell you that it is better than what it looks. Anyway better than the one from my old Bavaria 36 and that is enough for me.

For your tastes and what I think is your budget I would look to the Oceanis 37. It is a favorite in France and if I did not want a really fast boat, I would be tented by that one. It is a Finot design and I found it refreshingly different from the bigger Benetaus.

Take a look:

I do like the look of the Oceanis 37. Nice boat.

I was always a fan of the old Oceanis 395 though not the interior layout.
