Re: Coronado 25

Sambo 31, I've owned a Catalina 25 for three years and recently up graded to a Catalina 30. I must admit the Coronado was more boat than I expected and never disappointed except for the fact that I'm 6-1 and I just got tired of ducking when down below. Our Coronado is for sale if you're interested or even if you only want to talk or look at our boat, give me a call. The boat is at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club .

Re: Coronado 25

I paid $3500 for the boat and I've put another three thousand into the project. I'm asking $5000. The jib furlor alone was two thousand. We've up graded the winches and it has a very good 9.9 hp Yamaha motor. Great hull (I wish my new boats hull was this good). The boat was never kept in the water so probably explains why the hull is in such good shape.

Great boat! Plenty of room and storage space and they sail pretty well. Built heavy, very basic and not much to go wrong. There is a guy who sailed one (modified and geared up) extensively up and done the West coat. I saw it for sale a while ago for around $25K.

Re: Coronado 25

You might want to join the Yahoo owners group for Coronado 25's... Lots of good info exchanged. Love the Solitaire (hull # 251195 1969) well built solid pocket cruiser. Been living aboard her for about 6 years now. Tight but less space to keep clean.

Suits my needs well and the price was right.

Re: Coronado 25

The luff of the mainsail is a little under 28 feet, so I am guessing 30 feet off the deck or so:

Re: Coronado 25

The forestay length is listed as about 32 feet, so it'd have to be less than that correct?

Yep that looks right to me! The mast is deck stepped, not keel stepped, so it will be shorter than the forestay. Mine is too.
Just for fun you might get a look at a Columbia 24 if there are any around. I had one and she sailed really well, had lots of room for a 24 and also was stoutly built. Or, even better a Columbia 26 MK1, which has the head and hanging locker. Just a thought.
