Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Catalina 27 Tall Rig

STEADY NOTES
This is the first post I have made of this model of boat. I am posting this to ILLUSTRATE this type of boat that is very common and found everywhere in the USA. It is small keelboat, and most sell for less than $10K so it is a common "starter" cruising boat suitable for lakes, bay, and coastal cruising.
_______

"The CATALINA 27 is one of several models from this builder that has achieved historic popularity. In it's first 3 years of production nearly 1500 boats were sold. Total production was 6662 hulls. Offered originally with a std. outboard well, in 1973, Catalina offered an inboard Atomic 4 engine as an option and over the years a number of other engines were available including a Universal Diesel.
Built in Canada under license.
In 1991 it was replaced with the CATALINA 270.
Wing keel option.
Shallow draft keel: 3.0'

Tall rig version available (w/mast moved aft.)
I: 36.0'
J: 12.2'
P: 29.67'
E: 9.67'

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I came across this boat today. The reason I am posting it here is because of the appearance of the boat. I have looked at dozens of this model, and have sailed a few thousand miles in across an ocean in one.

THIS boat is the nicest looking one I have seen so far of this model. Must be something about the dark hull.

The listing does not have a price on it. But it does say "Must Sell, Willing to CONSIDER ALL Offers" so you won't know until you ask. IF you do find out the price, let me know, as I am curious.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I just called on this Endeavor, and the phone number in the ad "has been changed, disconnected, or is no longer in service". That is generally not a good sign.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Pearson 35, 1981
Keel/Centerboard

Steady NOTE: The link below shows photos of what appears to be a very clean boat. Condition is everything when it comes to older boats. This one might fit a member's needs. The only thing I see I don't like is the access to the engine and battery bank. As shown in the photo, it appears like the engine is hard to access. Perhaps a CF member can comment on that, if they own one or owned one of this model.

Thanks for the encouragement Don!

Yes, that Endeavour may not be available now, but I do like the paint/canvas color combination on her.

Some of these recent finds are really surprising me. Such potential!

I hope they find a good home with a CF Member. AND...on that point I hope if any CF Member DOES buy a boat from one of these threads that they will report back to us and let us know about the boats.

I am hoping Good Karma will help me find my own boat in the future.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

C&C Landfall 38

Steady NOTES:
1. This boat was designed as cruising boat and has an unusual layout. I am posting this as an example of the model along with specs and a recent (October 28 2016) sale listing to ILLUSTRATE a street price and condition. NOT all of the photos are of the boat in the sale listing.

2. Note this boat like other C&C boats has a balsa cored hull.

3. Note this boat has a V Drive.
_________

Notes from Others about this design and layout:

"Interior arrangements are very much a matter of personal preference and intended use, but for my taste the arrangement of the Landfall 38 is just about perfect for a coastal cruiser. " - Naval Architect Jack Horner of Boat US

The C&C Landfall series was C&C Yachts pivot from proven and fast racer/cruisers to more long-range friendly family cruisers. People familiar with C&C yachts prize them for their speed and construction, as they are one of the only full cored construction yards to get it "right."

The layout of the Landfall 38, along with its proven sailing ability, make this boat a perfect opportunity for those looking to upgrade or for those looking to find a comfortable cruiser with C&C's intuitive spatial layout.

This boat boasts a full size T cockpit with asymmetrically balance cockpit door that leads into the captian's berth. In this berth you will find an offset double on one side and a single on the other, along with a pilots station and charting table. Further forward one leads into a large U shaped galley on port. This galley boasts a gimballed stove, full stainless sink, and has a very large amount of storage.

John Kretschmer of Sailing Magazine writes of the layout, "At first glance this arrangement seems weird but it really works for cruising, especially for couples. The nav station and off-watch crew are within easy earshot of the helm and more importantly can be in the cockpit quickly in an emergency."

Opposite the galley is the roomy head, and further afront is a split salon perfect for extra crew, as each settee can make a single bed in a pinch. Further ahead are hanging lockers and a nicely appointed V double berth. The overall layout of this boat is very attractive to people that know sailing, and that is exactly what Jack Horner means. There is a lot of open space and yet technically there are two staterooms that can sleep up to 7 passengers with both settees.

Horner also states, "Although the Landfall 38 is a cruising boat, her heritage is that of a racer/cruiser. That heritage is reflected in her handling and performance, and she is easily balanced and driven at all points of sail. The sail area displacement ratio is 15.9 and displacement length ratio is 271, both of which are reasonable for this type of cruiser. The large foretriangle and equally large headsails make a good roller furling system a must."

"Construction of the Landfall 38 is typical of other C&C models with composite hull of fiberglass resin and balsa wood core. C&C has more experience with composite construction than practically any other boat builder, and it is unusual to find any significant structural problems with the hulls of these boats. " - Jack Horner of Boat US

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I wish you'd been doing this a year ago...... i fell in love with a 1982 36' Cape Dory... double my budget but practically needing no work and she's beautiful.

We wanted a boat like these you're finding.....$30-$40K, structurally sound but needing some work.

Now i have two beautiful ladies and can't afford either

Keep 'em coming,
