hey fellow multihullers. iam looking for a intercat 1500, but am having trouble finding one.
my biggest mistake was not purchasing
1990 Endeavour InterCat 1500 Catamaran - Boats.com
it was listed for 44k on that site, but he had it listed for 35k on craigslist. i didnt have the funds at the time, but im sure the guy settled for 30-35k and it seemed the boat
was in good condition. so mad i didnt have the money
anyways, i took several years off after high school
and am moving back to fort lauderdale
for college soon. i really hate paying rent and getting nothing in return, so i figure i could get a sailboat and live aboard, while going to school
for the next 3-4 years. would love to do some bahama trips when im off for summer and winter vacation
does anyone have experience with a intercat 1500? the thought of getting a cat under 50k would be so sweet.
i realize its not something i could cross the atlanic or pacific with, but my plans would be to maybe eventually island hop the caribbean
. im wondering what your thoughts are of a intercat making it to panama
from south florida
from key west
, cross the yucatan
, then hop the coasts of mexico
, costa rica
, then boom bocas del toro?
if school ended up not working out, then i need a backup plan, which would be coming back to bocas del toro. maybe be a surf, fishing
, and sailing bum for a few more years, while having a sailboat lol.
sorry for the rambling...my main objective is finding a catamaran
for under 50k. i always liked the intercat 1500. so if anyone has opinions or has owned one, then i would love to hear your responses. GRACIAS
