The owner bought this boat in 2012

General condition and any additional information

This boat is located in Lorain, Ohio at the Spitzer marina, and the owner lives in Columbus, Ohio. So, the owner would need some notice prior to showing the boat.
As noted above, this hull (#5607) was built after the Catalina Smile problem was resolved (which happened after hull #3500). This can be confirmed by contacting Catalina Yachts.

Owner is motivated to sell due to the fact he and his wife have been boating for many years and are in semi-retirement now--ready to slow down. As a seasoned citizen, owner wishes to bless someone with a good boat. Any reasonable offer will definitely be considered.
