Coplan 35 Cat?

sailboatlistings has this boat 2012 for sale for $125k the boat looks pretty nice from the pics, but we all know how that goes. Has anyone heard of these before? very little info online and seems like a cheap price for a 2012.
It had the layout similar to a wildcat.
Thanks very much

Coplan 35 Cat?

I wonder if it is actually fibreglass or balsa cored..... Keep that in mind. I suspect a fully fledged production glass cat would be worth more. This may explain the price that seems slightly lower than it should be.

Re: Coplan 35 Cat?

The company is in South Africa. It looks like they only build a power cat now. The boat you are looking at seems to be the only sailboat they built. It looks nice.

They say that the design is from Richard Woods, so you may want to contact him about this.

Re: Coplan 35 Cat?

What's that under the aft part of the hulls? Is the boat sitting on something or are those flat panels part of the boat?

Re: Coplan 35 Cat?

I saw those too. In another pic it didn't seem like they were there. Could they be hull extensions?

Re: Coplan 35 Cat?

They are odd for extensions. I saw that and concluded that the only pics they were there were the ones when tied to a dock. My guess was that they were pieces of foam to keep oily/dirty water from washing up on the bottom step. Of course, we used to have a boat where oily/dirty water was constantly lapping up the bottom step…

I'll buy that, but somebody would have to get into the dirty water to place them there...or pay someone else to do it.

Re: Coplan 35 Cat?

I think something like that could just be slipped on from the step. To me, they only looked like they were floating there.
