catalina 30 & 24

Hi,

I''m looking to buy one of 2 boats, both catalinas. Can anyone out there help me on a few points?
First, price. I''ve researched the asking prices on the internet and other sources. Both are right in the mid-range of the typical asking prices. But I know nobody pays list, so are there any rules of thumb about asking vs. real prices? Can a surveyor help me establish an accurate market value?
Also, can anyone tell me about points I should be aware of on either boat. Both boats about 10 to 12 years old.

Thanks,

Dave...

I looked at a very nice Catalina 30 - tall rig- in Florida about 18 months ago - it was in excellent condition and well equipped with low engine hours. It wall full keel ( 5 ft. draft ) which was indicated as a negative in the Florida market - asking was low 40''s - the salesman suggested it might go for as low as 35,000.00. Seemed like a good deal but I ended up going for a bigger boat.
