1978 Catalina Sailboat located in Ohio for sale

27' Catalina Sailboat


Description: Catalina 27, 1978 (Never had a 'Catalina Smile'!)

We sailed the boat only 3 years (2016 - 2018 summer). We did not take a lot of pictures but now I wish we had. The reason we are selling is because my wife says I can't have a bigger boat until Victoria sells first. We loved this boat! It is an awesome handling boat, and very responsive. She is a sound vessel and would be great even for the novice sailor.

It has never been in salt water. There have been a number of previous owners including the persons we bought it from, who until recently, were members at our yacht club.

Price is negotiable.
