This is a serious project boat thats mainly suffering from deferred maintenance and a little neglect. She has a leaky oil pan and the engine status is not known due to inability to run with the oil pan problem. The bones of this boat are good. She was purchased NEW at the St Pete boat show in 1996 and has had only one owner.

Due to her current condition, shes priced much less than comparable Catalinas of the same age (which would be in the 35k range).

Herstanding and running rigging may need replacing and she needs a new sail cover. Vessel could be surveyed but not taken on a trial run due to the condition of the engine. Theres quite a bit of bulkhead deterioration (see pics) and several windows are glazed. She also needs new batteries.

The interior is very clean; the cushions are in good shape and have been stored in an interior room in the home.

Owners highly motivated and in the process of selling the house where the boat is located out back in the water.

This is an excellent opportunity to get a great project boat that just needs a little investment to bring her up to like-new condition.

Bring any and all offers!
