Hi
As you probably suspected I am in Australia
currently have a 36' Ocean going steel ketch, a 20' comet trailer sailer for the inshore lakes and rivers and a sailable dinghy just for fun
Looking to move the first two and relocate to a nauticat 33 does anyone out there have any reviews they can forward me
Cheers
Keith

G'day, Keith - Welcome to Sailnet.

Exactly where are you?!? Australia is a mighty big place..

There are actually a few of us here from Down Under (we're slowly taking this site over from the Yanks ...but don't tell them that - they scare easily!)

Foster,
Welcome to Sailnet. We do have a former Nauticat owner on the site and he'll probably respond with his thoughts on the boat. I know he loved it.

Keith,
From your post in another thread, I assume you know that my wife and I recently sold our NC33. Being an obsessive Nauticat owner for the past 4 years, I had collected a wealth of information on these boats - far too extensive to list here as general information. But, I would gladly provide direct answers to specific questions, if you are interested.

Once you accumulate over 10 posts, you will be able to communicate with other members by PM (Private Message). After which, feel free to send me a PM. In the meantime, here's a review by Jack Horner from a 2005 Spinsheet article. It's a jpg copy of a pdf I have on file which is fairly accurate - although his reference to later models having cored decks is inaccurate. All Nauticats have solid fiberglass decks - particularly valuable with the teak deck overlay models. If you have trouble reading it, I could email the pdf.

Best, TB

Glad your here.

Hi Ozboatie. Glad to hear from another Ozzie.

It's probably a bit big for what you are looking for, but there is actually a Nauticat 38 for sail at my club. Here is the link.
