Without a doubt, the 12m was the best boat that Catalac produced. It was a very good interior design and was a very safe boat. The price today is a reflection on just how good these boats are, and how well they were built.

Heck, there are so few owners who decide to sell, that they must have done something right building these boats. There is one currently for sale in the Caribbean, which is the only boat I'm aware of for sale in proximity to North America
