    Food for consideration from a review of daysailers in the 12/02 issue of Sail Magazine:

  • "...of all the boats I sailed in our daysailer fleet, the Catalina 16.5 seemed most successful at capturing the attention of Camden [Maine] sailors...a well-designed boat...clearly Camden sailors know a good boat when they see one."

    Hello again David,
    Just wanted to let you know our boat was sold March 27th for $5000 and now has a happy home and caring owner on the Sea of Cortez in Mexico. Thanks for your help and fantastic web site!
    All the best to you.
    Santa Fe, New Mexico
