Re: Would you buy a +20 years old cat?

I think it comes down to what you want from a design point of view. Some boats are still basically the same as they were 10 or more years ago and that's fine if that's what you like.
There is always a compromise in any design.

Re: Would you buy a +20 years old cat?

There was that 18 year old Manta from the other thread that had lots of new stuff. I thought it was a good deal and so did someone else because it's under contract. There are good older boats out there. And, those older Outremers were all solid fiberglass with no core so no delam issues. Built like a brick shithouse and fast. I've never heard of a structural issue with them ever. They will smoke 99% of the boats out there. An oldie can be a goodie.

I'm just sayin...................
