Have to echo what BrantleyChuck said. I'm not really familiar with the Catalina Morgans but the Morgans built by Morgan
are decent boats. You aren't buying
a Rolls Royce but they are good boats.
I see three like this for sale
on the internet
, listed around $85-$95K so there's one benchmark.
In the case of a specific boat I would base my valuation on the condition and the cost to repair any serious or expensive problems. A few that could cost a lot in very round numbers.
- new engine
, but a 4-108 with 1300 hours if well maintained should have many years of life left.
- new standing rigging
. For that boat should not cost over $4000.
- new sails. If you buy brand new figure $3-$4K each for main and genoa
. Other sails less.
- deck leaks
and wet or rotted core
. BIG ONE. If bad this could be a huge fix. Check this very closely. Look around every
deck fitting: stanchions, winches, blocks, anything attached to the deck.
deck joint. another potential biggy.
- hull blisters
. 95% of the time they are easily dealt with but could cost 5-$10K for a full fix. If there have been botched repairs
or there are really deep ones then could be big money
- bulkheads. Make sure none of the structural bulkheads are damaged, wet, rotted and where they are glassed to the hull is good.
