I would also consider a decent cat. More people want cats than monos.
More want cats vs monos??? Don't think that can be substantiated. If it is apparent sentiment as expressed in forums
like these, that may be a common perception but looking at actual boat sales may prove otherwise. Bottom line is that unless your willing to put a lot of money
down on a very well used cat that's still over $175K US, from my research
I see a better value for same amount of money buying a later model monohull
Yes, many express the sentiment, me included; we love cats but when it's time to decide and pay my $150K, For that money I can't buy a decent cat that won't force me to constant repair and refit
. (Think 2007 Mahe, 2004 Leapord 38) For same money I can get a new or slightly used wide beam, chines run aft, big cockpit
mono that lets me cruise
immediately with substantially less operating costs over time. Plus, there's a bigger number of sailors who can afford to buy your mono vs your multi when you need to sell it.
