2002 Catalina 310 For Sale

All summer I’ve been following local (and local-ish) listings for 25′ to 35′ sailboats. Mostly sloops. All keel boats set up for cruising. I’ve pipe dreamed (and saved up) for years, but lately the [midlife] clock’s tick-tick-ticking louder. I’m hoping that next summer (or possibly even this autumn?)  I will find a suitable vessel.

I’m trying to balance my research between the sort of sailboats that quicken my pulse and make me drool (like the custom Friendship 36 in the photo above), and more practical sailboats that would make more sense as “entry level” cruisers. In the latter category I’ve come across a 2002 Catalina 310 (named Da Capo) that seems to make a lot of sense but that offers a healthy dose of sizzle as well. And it just happens to be moored along one of my weekday bicycle routes…

Here’s the information from sailboatlistings.com.
