25' Catalina 250 Water Ballast

New York

Description: The boat is well taken care of. The boat is cleaned after each use and the interior is cleaned at the beginning and end of each season.

Sails are washed and maintained every year by a sailmaker. The vessel is wrapped and pulled from the water by a professional every year I've owned her. Each season I personally wax the vessel. Also, the bottom paint is scrapped and repainted every year by the local marina. The engine is a 9 HP yamaha with about 60 hours. The engine is tuned up at the end of each season by the same marina. I've yet to have a problem with her. It's an electric start, and I've never had to pull start her.

The jib is a jib furler with a nice little canvass bag to protect from the sun while furled. The main sail also has a nice canvas bag that does the same thing. Also, It's a tiller steer which I recently sanded and refinished.

The most beneficial thing about the vessel is that she has a moveable keel and water ballast system. The keel extends the draft to a maximum of 6 feet. The keel can be adjusted on the fly to give a minimum draft of about 2 feet. Long Island is interesting in that the south shore is fairly shallow while the north shore is deep. However, having the moveable keel is useful regardless of where she's sailing. Also, the vessel has a transom stern meaning that it opens on the stern to allow water to more easily flow out. This makes keeping the vessel clean fairly easy.

Some other things on the vessel include a water tank and a propane stove top system. I've never used either. They were cleaned once at the end of the season, and then never used again.

Finally, the vessel fits about 4 super comfortably, but I've had as many as 7 on her. The best feature for seating a bunch of people are the "High Cat" seats mounted on the rear of the vessel. The vessel also sleeps 4 easily but could definitely sleep 6.

Equipment: Sail covers, tiller steering, fathometer, Yamaha outboard 9 HP, clean, movable keel, water ballast, propane stove, clean water tank, life jackets, anchor, and fully working running/navigation lights.

Location: Long Island, New York
