Cool Walk-through transom for under $45K?

Hi folks!

We are looking to buy a sailboat to use mainly on the Barnegat Bay in NJ (shoal draft is a must!) and take to Block Island, Cap May etc.

Have dogs and kids who love to swim so we decided to look only at boats with a walk-through transom. We are looking at early 90's Catalina 32-36.

Any other manufacturers out there that make a shoal draft, family weekend cruiser with a walk-thru transom that we can buy for around $45K?

Any suggestions welcome and thank you!
Christina

Re: Walk-through transom for under $45K?

This is also called a sugar scoop transom. They started to become a common feature in the late 80s and early 90s, and have stuck around since then. Almost any boat that you find on Yachtworld or other sites from that time period is worth checking to see if it has one. I'd expect that most Benetaeu and Hunter boats from that time period will also have them.

The Catalina 36 Mk2 (the version with the sugar scoop transom) is a nice boat, if you can find one of those in your price range then it is worth checking it out. I thought that they would typically be closer to the $70-$100k range though, with the earlier models (no walk through transom) being under $50k.

The smaller 320 may also meet your needs, would have a much lower cost of ownership, and is quite a bit less expensive:

Look at the Bavaria range most if not all the recent ones have walk thru transoms.Nice interior layouts too.

Some of the older Beneteau Idylles had walk thru transoms, the 43 does for sure.

Thanks Alex for the feedback and the 32 ft is a great looking boat and the size might perfectly suite our needs!

Thank you TQA! I will check out the older Beneteau models. I have seen a couple very nice Bavaria for sale and will have to keep an eye out for more.

C&C30 MkII as well, much bigger inside than the LOA would suggest.

ODay 35. Modified from the 34 to add the sugar scoop stern. Priced well below $45k.

Very few of these boats will actually work for Barnegat Bay where the average depth is 6-7 ft a 5 foot draft is pushing it here and would serve rely limit your sailing there.
