I am offering my well-kept Catalina 27 for sale to a new owner. This is the standard rig fin keel version, equipped with outboard power. The boat has been upgraded where it matters for a safe and easy-to-sail first "large" sailboat. his is an excellent first or second sailboat for someone looking for a great daysailer or weekend cruiser. Very forgiving under sail and a great Chesapeake Bay boat with its four foot draft. For a 30 year old sailboat she is in good condition and a dry boat. She's been upgraded where it counts. She is NOT a project boat and is in sailaway condition on the South River. Asking $7500 or reasonable best offer. Cash or certified/cashiers check drawn on a US bank or credit union only. Test sail available to serious buyer. Additional pictures available on request. Owners highly motivated as we have a new sailboat and our Catalina needs a good home. Will entertain any reasonable offer!
