Hi Werners and welcome to the forum! There are many people here who are knowledgeable about cats and will be more than happy to exchange their thoughts on a boat that might suit your need and budget
Judging from your previous boat (a catfhisher) and your current
one, you are somewhat less concerned about performance than with solid construction. Or, having owned boats that were not performance oriented, have you changed your priorities?
Regardless, there are numerous threads discussing the type of boat that I suspect you are interested in. If your budget is restricted and you are looking for a coastal cruising catamaran for the two of you, you might want to search for threads into the Gemini
, the PDQ
32 and various of the other British built cats of the 70's and 80's including Prouts, Catalacs and Solaris. They British ones will have the sturdy construction that I suspect appealed to you in your Catfisher, but typically a bit more performance (in some cases, quite a bit more). The Gemini's have a huge following and good accomodation and quite decent performance - although their construction is certainly less solid than their British cousins. The PDQ
32 was well built and is a more modern design than the others, albeit typically at a highr price
. And of course if you loved her, there are still some Catfishers on the market from time to time.
