General condition and any additional information:
I purchased Anam Cara in 2010 and she has given me nothing but joy over the past 10 (well 8) years. She was, and still is, a clean, dry boat that featured the famous Catalina 30 hull design (sails amazingly and loves the swells!) with a well thought out interior.
We spent - Click here to reveal phone number -
practically living aboard in the summer time and did that easily. She the envy of the sailboats on the dock for her wonderful balance between sailing and liveaboard ability. She even inspired a dock mate to sell his boat and buy a Catalina!
In 2018 my son moved up an age level in ice hockey where the regular season started in August, which led to practices starting in May-June. This caused our sailing to come to a screeching halt. (oh the sacrifices we make for our kids!) As we approach sailing season 2020, he is still playing and I am nearing retirement, which means a move to warmer climates where we will consider our next boat based on where we end up. It makes me sad to see my beautiful boat on stands and not doing what she was built to do.
Anam Cara is well cared for with lots of standard features and added items to make her a great liveaboard and a fun sailing boat that can even be done single-handed with great ease. The boy, who was 7 years old when Anam Cara was bought, can sail the boat without any input from me!
Please note that the pictures are from various time frames but they are still accurate as I maintain her well. Right now she is on the hard and there are things stored inside! I dont want to be the guy that posts cluttered cabin pictures! Id be happy to meet with you and show you everything or send along other photographs.
