Catalina 27: 1973 or 1985
For moorage reasons, we have narrowed our new sailboat search down to a Catalina 27. We need the 8'10" beam and the 4' draft.
One option is a 1973, dinette, tiller, outboard motor.
The other option is 1986, diesel engine, wheel, a few more electronics.
Both seem well cared for, but we haven't had a survey yet. They both have new cushions, older sails.
The newer boat is listed about $4,000 higher.
I'm sure there are lots of opinions out there as to which is the better boat! I'd love to hear them.
