you may wanna price it a bit higher than you are willing to sell it for, given the fact that everything is a negotiation and odds on you will get an offer under your ask. may be obvious, but it would give you a bit more wiggle room.
good luck.
i think you can list it here for free... it is nationwide, though the name says texas... no affiliation, just tryin to help

Check out Sailboat listings .com. They have thousands of boats for sale. I check that site out weekly to see what new boats there are for sale.

In your price range, don't forget Craigslist. And do every metropolitan area within a couple hundred miles of you.
My son sold his runabout a little over a year ago using Craigslist. He was asking $9500, sold for $9000.

Agree with Sailboat Listings.com. Great site to use.

Thank you again for all your suggestions

I posted it on craigslist:

Catalina 27 1978

Also on Sailboat listings

if it sells, great, I think the price is fair and below what other comparable ones have gone for.. I really like the boat so whatever happens its fine

Me too :-)
Seems like the C27 is a good choice and that good examples sell quickly. Did you outgrow it and move to bigger boat? The reason I ask is that we are looking for a weekender coastal cruiser to sail in the NY/NJ region. Wondering how you found the C27 suited that purpose ?

Yes, we wanted a bit more space for longer cruises. Went to a 32. But the C27 is great. Lots of space inside and in the cockpit. Very comfortable for weekends and most importantly great sailing characteristics. Excellent for coastal cruising. Mine had a new mainsail and without the genoa unfurled we would do 5kts (not in heavy wind at all!!!). Really crazy how nice it sails, easy to maneuver and very stable. I put a lot of money and effort into this one and really had a difficult time letting it go. Probably sold it for same amount of money I put on it the last year I had it but I think it's going to a new owner who will care fir it and enjoy it.

Perhaps what I like the most about the C27 is how easy it is to find info, parts etc and fix it or upgrade it.
Good luck with your search
