BOAT SHOPPERS:  We are helping Dad sell his nice Catalina 30 in Sausalito, CA. Maggie is a two-owner boat. Bob Stevens tricked her out in the 90’s as a very well kept racer / cruiser, named Stray Cat. She was quite competitive among the Bay Area Catalinas. Our folks bought her in 2000 for Bay and Delta cruising. We have the buyer’s survey for you, finding her “quite close to bristol condition” Maggie has been Dad’s prize possession, always cared for in the same Richardson Bay slip for the past 19 years, including regular bottom cleaning by Dave’s Diving and sail maintenance by the Soldanos at Hood. Maggie is a great boat for the Bay and coastal trips. The Catalina 30 is stiff and predictable, offering quick, stable, no surprises sailing.

The interior is in nice, all original condition, . The Universal 25 three cylinder diesel has low hours (about 1,200 since new) and is running fine. It got an upgraded propellor in the early 2000’s which pushes the boat very well. On the exterior, it’s time for some refreshing as Dad hasn’t been mobile enough in the past two years. Everything works and she’s ready for sailing; the new owner can decide how much cosmetic upgrading to do. We’ve recently done engine maintenance, installed new batteries, inspected and corrected any sail rigging as needed. She’s due for bottom paint, and we will cover that cost during the buyer’s haul-out survey.

There are two jibs for the roller furler, and we swap them for the seasons each year, putting the bigger one on for winter and the smaller for the windier summer days. The main is 20+ years old but still serviceable. All lines, including mainsail reefing, run aft to the cockpit. Spinnaker rigging is installed but the pole and chute were sold long ago. Our folks have done only the mellowest of sailing.

The sale will be handled by son Greg and son-in-law Joe. Maggie is owned by Dad with current Allstate insurance, Coast Guard certification, and no liens. Her Richardson Bay Marina slip is available for the new owner.

Asking $12,000
