Re: Wow. Catalina's are Expensive

Got to be 49k.


And sailing pics are not of a C36. Maybe an old Cherubini hunter but not a Catalina.

Should be sold at 499k by tomorrow..

In advertising a gimmick will catch your eye and draw you to the add... I guess it worked.

I have owned a 1984 C-36.

That is definitely a C-36 Mark I in those photos, even out of focus.

What made you think it was something else?

Re: Wow. Catalina's are Expensive

Sounds reasonable if you compare it to the original asking price of the Flyin' Hawaiian, $500k.
At least the Catalina is a factory build.

Re: Wow. Catalina's are Expensive

If it was my boat and someone offered 70% of asking price I MIGHT be tempted to part with it.

I have to admit, I clicked on this link thinking I was going to have to argue with someone about Catalinas. Good post Monkey

I'll tell you what, I'll give him 500.00 for it and call it good. Why quibble over a tenth of a cent.
