Nice price reduction. This owner is motivated and ready to make a deal. The boat is very clean and well loved by her owner!
"Zephyr” is a 1991 Catalina MK 1.5 which has been meticulously maintained by its owners. She is perfect for sailing the Bay and coast. She is complete with autopilot, roller furling, Universal diesel engine with low hours, nicely laid out cabin and galley, head with shower, updated bimini, dodger, nice condition cockpit cushions and interior seating cushions and non-skid deck.
According to Practical Sailor, “The target market for the 36 is couples and families who primarily weekend vacation cruise but may be planning some extended cruising. They want a boat that is comfortable, offers reasonable performance, and is stable and predictable to handle.” Owners of the Cat 36 consider their boats to be structurally sound, seaworthy, and “fast enough.” The Cat 36 has been one of the most popular 36’ sailboats in the world.
An important aspect of boat ownership is maintenance. The 36 MK 1.5 has teak hand rails and anodized spars reducing maintenance on deck and extending your sailing season. The mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems are engineered to increase dependability and accessibility. Engine access is excellent with the one piece insulated enclosure removed. Aft of the engine is a mechanical compartment that contains the engine valves and filters. This makes maintenance and service easier. The structural system and construction of the Cat 36 is proven and straightforward. The hull structure is rugged, hand laminated, solid fiberglass. The keel is lead with integrally cast stainless steel bolts.
She has a sea kindly moderate displacement hull that tracks well and performs well in a variety of conditions. And, she is priced to sell quickly. She has been regularly hauled/inspected/bottom painted; engine regularly serviced; her exterior teak has been consistently stripped/recoated. Rigging replaced in 2005 (all wire, connections, lifelines, and rear stations aft of gates).
The current slip can most likely transfer to the new owner.
Zephyr has a big, comfortable cockpit, spacious interior, and two-cabin layout. She has an aft cabin with a large athwartship double berth. The owner’s cabin forward is comfortable and well-ventilated. She has ample storage capacity with drawers, lockers, and bins.
The galley and main cabin have received special attention to design and detail.
