Hey Zipp50 - normally the peeps on this board are a bit quicker responding - perhaps everyone's out sailing....
You can probably find a range of opinion on the Cat34 here from owners who love it to those who wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. When looking for a boat I concluded that it looked a capable coastal cruiser (seem to remember a cutter
version?) but wasn't too comfortable with its blue water
credentials though much of that lies with the sailor. Never actually looked at one in person but saw a few on yachtworld that looked pretty.
