Hi everyone my first post here. I live in Thailand and decided to purchase a cat for coastal and island sailingand was hoping some of the more experianced may offer some advice on the boat below the asking price is $89,000 aus neg. I need to be able to singlehand and the owner has assured me it could be easily set up .I have not seen her yet as she is in Bali but its only a short hop from here. I have a few years mono sailing under my belt but never on cat. Any comments on wether this is a good buy considering the equipment levels would be very much appreciated
Cruise South East Asia, reimport to Australia or retire in beautiful Bali with a day charter business. This Crowther Cat is Indonesian registered and currently in Bali after 2 years cruising Malasia, Thailand and Indonesia. It is a very comfortable, well set up boat for extended island cruising or could be used as a day charter business again. (8 guests) It is offered for sale at near half the price of similar boats in Australia. The boat has currently undergone a major refit plus full motor overhaul
Details Price AU $89,000
