Stur-dee Cat, 14'4", 1987, Old Greenwich, Connecticut, $4,600
Stur-dee Cat, 14'4", 1987
10"-3'6" draft. centerboard boat
130 sq.ft. sail area
Mooring cover recently gone over by sail shop
Not Bristol (meaning perfect) but a nice boat.
Well at transom for mounting a motor
2.2hp Mariner motor extremely clean option
The Mariner at half throttle moves her quickly
We have considered an electric outboard-inexpensive and quiet.
The Stur-dee Cat was designed in the late 1940's and is still built by the same family. You can learn more on their website.
I also have a Beetle Cat, which I love, but it is amazing how much bigger the Star-dee Cat is and the seats are just right with the well comfortable for your feet. Centerboard and heavy rudder are fiberglass with the varnished tiller of two tone laminated wood.
I believe I am the third owner and the boat has always been in Old Greenwich Harbor, Conn.
One original main with a small patch
Second main slightly smaller from a Geary 18 racing boat
The cockpit combing and rubrail is new wood from the builder 2005
Trailer is fine for launching and moving short distances at reasonable speed.
We kept her on a mooring with ablative bottom paint.
There are two other Stur-dee Cats in the harbor. One was bought last year for $6000. Needed and got new wood-very rough boat.
We have enjoyed teaching the grandchildren how to sail in TERI (part of a Scottish Muir war cry). I share ownership with my daughter.
We sail right up to the beach and scout for crabs and shells. She is a very tough (as is my daughter) and stable boat with the large cockpit that holds 4 or six people depending on adults or children. Sometimes the little ones like crawling under the cuddy cabin. Stable enough to stand on the fore deck for mooring or sail handling. Dry even with a good chop and handles high winds. Note the sheer and bow shape. Lots of pictures on the internet.
