MassBaySailors Catalina 36's
- Greg,My guess is that a 1986 C36 would sell for $45k to $57k ish.My friend and a MassBaySailor and WYC member "Ahmet" owns a 1984 C36. E-Mail him and ask him some questions. Also, most of the links I gave you for the C30 are relative to a C36 too.Ahmet Buharali ahmet@...

The main fully battened main is about 6 years old. It has one head sail a 155 Genoa on a furler this is probably at least 10 years old. Electronics: in addition to the usual, it has an autopilot and GPS (no radar). Interior is clean, upholstery is the dark blue (not earth tone plad) and in good condition but, probably original. Galley has pressure hot and cold water, alcohol stove and oven, ice box (no refrigeration). On deck, it has a bimini and dodger in good condition, self tailing winches (probably original), bright work has been well cared for, lines appear in good condition, cockpit has a folding table at the helm and cockpit cushions. The hull appears clean. The boat is in good condition.What do people ask for these in this are? What do they ultimately get sold for?Thanks,Greg Thompson

Subject: Re: MassBaySailors Catalina 30'sHello Greg & Kathleen,In all humility Elaine sent you to the right person.My estimate of a 1986 C30 is $25k to $38k ASKing Prices;$32k to $35k for very goo to excellent condition, upgrade, new gear etc ..$28k to $32k for fair to ver good shape$20k to $30k Some will be o.k. others will need some fixing .Under $20k, something wrong or a handy man special.Because there were so many C30s built, around 7000 from 1975 to 2005, there is usually an ample supply of them on the market. This also makes the boat a very affordable boat (they sell well/qucik and there are LOTS of psare parts and after market products for it.Do NOT buy a C30 in New England until you visit Eastern Yacht Sales in Higham Mass. and ask for my friend & broker Shep Shove, their link is below.I read your 2nd e-mail to me and invtie you to the MassBaySailors Group!

- I must have put in the wrong model or some other wrong info into bucnet since I don't know the boat.The value the site gives for my own boat seems reasonable, maybe a little high. They don't say how the value is calculated, but hopefully it is based on recent sales. Like cars, boat prices fall with age. Thus prices from past sales might be higher that what can be expected today.Unlike cars, boat condition and equipment varies a great deal from boat to boat. Some people buy a boat and let it sit at the dock with little use or maintenance. Others spend thousands of dollars and untold hours of labor every year.

- I always noticed that prices on bucnet are largely under estimated compared to yachtworldSo it really depends if you are a buyer or a seller I guess ;)Allorshas
