Is there a Difference in Price for Lifting ?

a 47ft sailing cat compared to a Power cat 47ft like say a Leopard.
I wonder about that.
Im looking at a Leopard 47 PowerCat and also their sailing cats.
I know I have to buy the fuel for the power cat. I wonder about the up
keep of sails and ropes on a sailing cat and if it cost more to haul it out>
Im wondering if there is more up keep on a sailing cat then on the powercat. How much do sails cost for a cat that size, I have to keep that in mind aswell. Ive seen some companies at shows that will clean and put new UV protector on your sails to make them last longer.
How often does the wire rigging need to be replaced to be on the safe side and the cost.

Re: Is there a diffrence in price for lifting

As long as the lifting system can handle the beam, haulout costs are usually based on dollars per foot of length.

Whether or not sails vs power is more cost efficient probably depends on how many miles you would do, and how "determined" a sailor you'd be. If you're going to motor everywhere, a sailboat will use similar amounts of fuel to a motorboat.

Cost of sails will vary widely, depending on where you have them made, and what material.
