1989 Catalina 25

  • Hull: Fiberglass
  • Engine: 1989 5HP Honda Four Stroke outboard (model BF5A)
  • Keel: Fixed (draws 4.5 feet)
  • Sails: Main with full battens, reef point, NEW MAINSAIL COVER.

    This is one of the nicest Catalina 25's in it's year, and may be the nicest 25 footer on Lake Travis. This boat has been in freshwater it's entire life. Last bottom job was 4 years ago. The cabin has a pop-top, which makes it so you can be tall (6 foot plus) and still stand in the cabin. With a roomy V-Berth, 2 settees, and an aft-berth, you can easily sleep 6 people on this boat. The table is large enough for 4 people to eat a nice-sized dinner on. Comes with an alcohol stove for cooking. It also has a fresh water holding tank. There's a factory-installed head with holding tank and Y-valve.

    Boat is ready to sail as is. Just get on and go.

    Upgrades we've made to the boat:

  • New mainsail cover
  • New sail ties
  • New tiller cover
  • New running rigging
  • New lead acid battery
  • New cabin sole carpet
  • Overhauled engine completely, so it's 1 year used. Also comes with multiple shear pins in case you need one (and you never know when you might).
  • All brightwork has been professionally maintained while I've owned the boat, including the tiller.
  • Mast track has been Sail-Kote'd, for ease of mainsail use.
  • New electrical panel
  • New anchor and rode
  • New docklines
  • New fenders (THREE) with new hand pump for fenders.
  • Lifeline pads, for leaning against the lifeline while you are lounging around in the cockpit.
  • New lightbulbs throughout interior of boat.
  • New gear hammocks (TWO), one in V-berth for holding blankets, the other in main cabin area for holding maps and lots of other things.
  • Shore power cord (110V), includes the pigtail to plug into the boat and an extension cord to go to the dock.

    Comes with:

  • Transom-installed swim ladder
  • Stanchions with lifelines.
  • Depth finder
  • Cockpit table
  • AM/FM/CD/MP3 player with speakers
  • Cockpit cushions
  • 2 anchors/chains/rodes (bow and spare)
  • Working windex on mast
  • Pushpit rail mounts for mounting BBQ pits
  • Dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, ready to cook on the boat
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Air horn (required)
  • Life vests
  • 2 Class 3 throwables (required)
  • Winches (all working)
  • 3 winch handles (1 solid, 2 floating red)
  • A bunch of noodles for floating in the lake
  • About a hundred new plastic cups from Rudyís and McAllisterís Deli for mixing cocktails on the boat.
  • ALL MANUALS and documentation for this boat including: Catalina 25 owner's manual, outboard owner's manual, outboard shop manual, radio owner's manual, marine toilet manual, electric bilge pump manual, alcohol stove manual, Lewmar winch manual, original owner's purchase information (this boat was originally purchased from The Sailboat Shop in Austin), and maintenance papers.
  • Friend offer: One full sailing lesson to get acquainted with the boat, plus multiple days sailing and getting to know the engine until you are comfortable doing it yourself. J

    And finally, what needs to be done to the boat as far as we know:

  • Fresh-water intake on the head has a leak, so the head wonít fill with lake water. You can still use the head, but itís just not flushing properly.
  • Streaming light needs to be fixed (which means going up the mast at some point). Could be just a replacement bulb.
  • Bright work will need another coat this year (I will explain exactly how to do this, and what you need to do to keep it beautiful annually).
