Along the west coast of Florida and again in the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez) Mexico there are a number of cats that are within your range. It is just that all require some assembly at various levels. Taking on a project would open up your market.

Sorry, I don't have links. Some I saw on Craisglist, others from word of mouth.
This is what I'm looking for, a project to spend 2-3 years on. Plenty out there unfortunately very few on the West coast.

Re: Looking for a cat

Hi From Australia

I am about to put for sale my 40ft Chamberlain Design Cat.

Have not set a price yet but around $150K Aus$

I have completely upgraded her and she is ready to go cruising.

Am hauling out next month for antifoul.

If you are interested let me know and i will forward pics and information.

Why not start here in OZ like many of your countrymen and enjoy the Barrier reef for starters
Cheers now
Simon
Brisbane. Australia

The asking price (which is obviously negotiable) is $195,000 cdn. Thats around $140 USD, your stated target price.

This Gemini 34 is located in Kingston, Canada (Lake Ontario, east end) is a little smaller than you want, but is only asking $110,000 cdn, which is about $80,000 USD: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-sailboat/kin...ationFlag=true

Both boats are older than you specified. But there is no charge to click and look at the pics.

And if you are wondering, yes, easy access to the Atlantic ocean at New York City via the Oswego and Erie canals... an easy and enjoyable trip that takes maybe 2 weeks.

8 years ago I went through a similar exercise, looking at Gemini and wildcats to sail the Caribbean in winter. I settled on a 2005 jaguar 36. $155k in 2010. The pros over other cats are low price, enormous interior space, 23í beam, comparable to most 42í plus cats, great headroom, fully blue water capable. (Sailed across the pond from South Africa) Cons, manufacturer out of business, large polycarbonate salon windows last about 5 years before replacement needed, (cost $3k in Guatemala) low bridge deck clearance so slapping on certain waves/tack angles. Iíve concluded that low bridge deck is a good trade for the added headroom, put up with slapping 1% of the time and enjoy the headroom 99% of the time. Not a fast sailing cat but occasionally hit 10 plus knots in 20 knot winds on the quarter with the genaker or a spinnaker downwind. Iíve read about delamination issues on these boats but have not experienced any.
After 8 years I love it as much as day 1. If you can find one well maintained and upgraded , or one in need of TLC that your prepared to do, you might find itís a great value for your cruising dollar. Good luck and fair winds.

Re: Looking for a cat

From memory thereís an Acte 42 for sale in the US around your price range and also a few Crowthers in and around Aus on boatsales.com.au

Take your time looking for the right one, and donít settle on the first one to come along or one that will have serious compromises thatíll annoy you down the line!

Re: Looking for a cat

The Voyage 42 UBATUBA is sitting on the hard at Pangkor Island Marina, Malaysia. The owner has basically left her there for over 4 years, has medical problems, and is done with cruising.


She's not listed with any broker and is in decent shape and could probably be had for a steal. I'm going back there next week and could get you the owner info if you want.
Cheers, Dave

Re: Looking for a cat

We spent over a year shopping cats in this price range a few years ago. After looking at many and eventually surveying half a dozen and finding various degree - some extensive - of wet coring and delamination, we concluded a cat at this price range was out of our comfort range in terms of condition and cost to bring up to where we were confident we could sell to another buyer who was willing to purchase near price we paid with as many issues. YMMV. Most of repairs would have run in the range to make these cats cost prohibitive given the age and value of boat.

Re: Looking for a cat

Teaden,
we are looking as well, but not quite ready to buy. We looked at a 46 footer the other day in really good shape for 139,000 asking price.

I'd be almost all in for this BroadBlue. By checking from the images I see a lot of good points, such as obviously good to perfect maintenance state, just look at the leanliness in the engine room.

Two big drawbacks although:

First, for an US customer, this boat is most certainly wired and equipped for 220V/50Hz European AC, might cost good bucks to convert it to 110/60, or hybrid.

Second, the hard foredeck (as compared to the netted foredecks with other models such as Fountain Pajot, or Lagoon) might make for a hard and noisy ride in bad weather.

And not to forget, the boats status is "Sale agreed" - but might be the OP had a quick reaction?
