SOLD to a wonderful new owner! The Fun continues...

For Sale: 1978 Catalina 25 Sailboat - Standard Rig, Swing Keel $3800 OBO

Link to photos on craigslist:

We've enjoyed our Catalina for over 15 years, but have now moved up to a newer model, and it's time to part with the Second Wind.

The Catalina 25 is in the water and ready to sail. This is not a new boat but very solid. It has some warts which I'll be happy to discuss, but all-in-all she's a great vessel. The swing keel allow you to be a 'lazy' sailor as you can easily pull up the keel if you get into shallow water.

Sleeps 7 good friends. 2 in the V-Berth, 2 under the cockpit, 2 in the main cabin by dropping down the table, 1 in the main cabin side berth. We've sailed with 6 to Put-in-bay, Kelly and the Canadian Islands. Great times!

Link to video of shakedown cruise on Second Wind:
First sail of the season. 360 degree view of Lake Erie at the mouth of the Detroit River. It's a beautiful day to be alive and sailing on the Great Lakes!!

The Catalina 25 is the most popular and sailboats in it's size ever produced, and for good reason. It's comfortable, safe, reasonably priced. Parts and advice are easily available and there is an active owners forum.

The popular Pop-Top allows for roomy comfortable movement when at port. My boat co-owner is 6-4 and can stand upright in the cabin the the pop-top raised.

Please reach out if you're interested, please reachout & contact Phil

Newer Main Sail

Other Sails

Everything you need to get started - lines, bumpers, poles, safety equipment, many extra all included.

I can transport within 100 miles or sail with you to a new dockage.

If you have your own motor, I'll keep the Honda and knock $500 off the price.
