So which one did you buy?

No choice here, Sabre all the way. I have sailed both brands and the Sabre just stands out. It will also have a much better resale value when 2 foot-itis kicks in.

Yes. I agree roller-furler mains are inferior performance wise. I would like a traditional main with a dutchman system; and an electric halyard winch.


I plan on providing six pack charters some of the time to offset some of the operating costs.

Looks like you get the traditional rig on the Sabre and likely a roller furler main on the Catalina 36 MKII. For me, that's a huge plus. If you've never sailed a roller furler main, it's rather nice.

I've looked at quite a few Catalina 36's lately and they seem to wear rather well - especially the interior.

Re: 1995 Sabre 362 or Catalina 36MkII 2004

Then my guidance is that you not buy a boat with a roller furler main.

I am not a big fan of in-mast furling for several reasons:

1) When problems arise it is a pain in the but to fix;
2) In-mast furling does not sail well to windward because of sail shape and the absence of battens;
3) I like the KISS principle for easier repairs and less cost.


I should also mention since I have my USCG License I may also provide some charters every once in a while.
