Catalina Capri 26, 1991, Lake Ray Hubbard, Dallas, Texas

Temptress is a wonderfully sweet sailing boat with a roomy comfortable cabin and huge cockpit. Catalina built her as a "performance cruiser" for day sailing, short cruises, and handicap racing.

We are a sailing family and have really enjoyed this boat. We hate to give her up, but due to medical issues and physical limitations I can't take care of her the way I used to, and I'm not able to sail her solo any more. So we wish to trade her for a late model Capri 18, or sell her as a complete package - trailer included.

She is located on Lake Ray Hubbard, Dallas, Texas.
