One further point would be that having the ability to get the boat out if the water will reduce maintenance costs. I am on my third trailerable (Spyder 24) and it costs me nothing maintenance-wise having it sit in the yard between sails. The Catalina was marketed here in Australia as the Boomaroo, heavy but I always thought the lines were nice. Good first boat.

It's wierd but there are trailerables made by Chrysler.... a friend had a 26 years ago and it was a great boat.... roomy too. If you start going above the Cat 22 range, you may be into towing machine issues though.

Aloha Fmooy,
Welcome to the forum. My first boat was a Catalina 22 fin keel. I never regretted the purchase. A great learning and overnight boat. It was forgiving and tough which is what is needed.
You are better off waiting for trailer, outboard and boat in one purchase. Check to see the condition before making an offer. You don't need more than about a 6hp outboard for a Cat 22.
Kind regards,

Lots of good boats in the 20ft daysailer range. Some have already gave you some ideas. Also if a Cal-20 is for sale in your area then its worth a look. Especially if it comes with a trailer. Do you have a place for the trailer where you live? Also some yacht clubs have sailboats for member use, so you might also check into that as an option.
