General condition and any additional information

This Catalina 27 is a Project Boat - that needs some Tender Loving Care. It will bring any sailor many days of wonderous Sailing.

Standard features

Imagine yourself on a weekend sail in one of the best cruising sailboats built – the Frank Butler designed Catalina 27’! The Catalina design combines high performance with comfortable cruising without sacrificing one for the other. This is a project boat. I bought the boat four years ago and never found the time for the different projects and it has sat in dry dock. This boat has never seen salt water, but has sailed the fresh water lakes of Minnesota. Projects include replacement of all the stanchions and lifelines (set of new stanchions included, two of the existing require some fiberglass work on the deck;) The engine has not been tested, nor has the electrical as I have not had it in the water since owning it; actually, the previous owner did not have it in the water either so it has not been in any water for at least seven years. The bottom is in good shape, the gel coat looks good, heavily oxidized. The sails are in good to very good shape. The boat is white with a blue bottom and black mast and boom. This boat could be yours, and with a three-axle trailer included, you can take her anywhere. The boat is currently located in Durango, Colorado.

Extra gear included

1 Fresh Water Tank, 1 Fuel Tank, 1 Holding Tank, Battened Mainsail with 2 reefing points-good shape, 150 Genoas, 1 Jib, 4 winches, tiller Steering, Marine Head with Manual flush, ice box, Bug Screens for Hatch and Entryway, Swim Ladder, Cockpit cushions, complete set of new stanchions, shore power cord, new mooring lines, mainsail cover, 3 axle trailer - custom fitted for boat - with bow catcher and keel guide, Upholstery is in good condition, teak hanging closet across from head, enclosed head, port side galley, foot pump for water supply, stainless steel sink
