I have spent the last few months studying the various sailboats in the marketplace that meets my requirements for a blue water
sailor that I can still afford. It came down to the Catalina
315 and 355.
Additional nail biting brought me to the conclusion that the 315 best suits my needs. She will take me across the Gulf and all over the Caribbean
. I only need a 32 foot slip and can be easily singlehanded.
It has an official CE"A" rating for extended passages offshore
. Inside is ample space for living aboard
for two. Outfitted to my requirements will make her fully self contained.
