Catalina 27 or 30

I just closed on my first c30 yesterday. I had a Sunfish dinghy a few decades ago and a little Hobie renting here and there. I single handed the C30 yesterday in 25 Knot winds. I have a lot to learn, but it was pretty easy. The 30 is so much more livable!!! Get the 27 only if you want to trailer yourself.

We own a 1972 Catalina 27 and have some good friends who own a 30 foot. Theirs has a bunch more room in the salon and sleeping quarters plus wheel steering where ours has tiller steering. Boats seem to handle about the same although mine seems to be a little quicker on the helm. From a comfort perspective bigger is usually better. On the other hand, ours is paid for even if it is 3 feet shorter!

I own a C30 and have sailed both. PHRF of So. Cal. rates the C30 at 192 and the C27 at 207. I agree - the big difference is in comfort as both are great boats for coastal cruising. The C30''s extra beam allows for a much roomier feel below.

I have sailed both boats. There is very little difference. A 30 has a bit more beam which only comes into play when docking. The big jump comes when you move from a 25 to a 30 or a 30 to 35. I would go with the 30 due to better accomidations down bellow. Both boats are fun and easy to sail.

Can anyone tell me about the differences in learning to sail in a Catalina 27 as opposed to a Catalina 30. What are the differences in sailing abilities.
