**SOLD**

1985 Catalina 25 Sailboat Ė 9.8hp outboard, Standard rig, Swing-keel, Pop-top - $8500
Located: Annapolis, MD

https://annapolis.craigslist.org/boa/d/annapolis-1985-catalina-25-std-rig/7406025187.html



Lovingly maintained and heavily upgraded over the past 7 years. Have extensive documentation including invoices, write-ups and photos of work that I can share with anyone interested. Unfortunately, we are outgrowing the boat as our family is growing. Currently scheduled to haul and repaint the bottom in the spring and the boat can remain at its slip at Back Creek in Annapolis until April 1st when it will need to be moved as itís current slip is not available for re-lease. Also have an 8í Boatex dinghy that can be included with the boat for the right price.

I understand if you don't like the price. I'm open to offers, but this really is a feeler as I may decide to do another season with it so no low-ballers. Please donít waste my time.

Information about the Boat:
SAILS: New loose-footed mainsail and cover from Bacon Sails in 2015. New 130 foam luff 6.4oz roller-furler genoa w/sunbrella UV cover from Rolly Tasker installed 2017. Asymmetrical spinnaker with sock included (in great shape) which is always fun to sail with.

OUTBOARD: 2017 Tohatsu MFS9.8BEFUL 9.8hp w/extra long shaft, high-thrust prop, electric start, and battery charging. 100hrs or less. New heavy-duty motor mount. Serviced regularly and well taken care of. Have all parts on hand for yearly service including water-pump impeller. Have replacement/service parts as well as a motor stand that will be included.

HULL: New balanced Foss rudder installed 2014. Keel winch replaced 2 years ago. Keel Lifting hardware replaced and keel resurfaced and painted with two coats every other year Ė bottom cleaned in regular intervals in between. Hull cleaned and brightened with polyglow regularly though starting to fade.

STANDING RIGGING: Rigging inspected and tuned in past year.

RUNNING RIGGING: All lines ran to cockpit with clutches. 2 main self-tailing winches, 2 secondary spinnaker winches, 1 mast-mounted, and 1 cabin-top winch. Ball-bearing CDI FF6 roller furler installed 2017. Masthead spinnaker rigging and every sort of rigging adjustment (like reefing, etc.) type setup. All critical lines replaced with high-performance dynema. Whiskerpole

INTERIOR: All cushions reupholstered in high quality vinyl and sunbrella fabric. Pop-top makes for great interior space while not underway, have a kit with shocks that helps to lift the top (not installed) that will come with the boat. Original gimbaled stove removed but have on-hand. Windows resealed though they still leak slightly. All wood refinished and looks beautiful, though small spot of rot on bulkhead from leaks Ė not structurally compromised and rigging can be tuned and stay in tune for long periods.

ELECTRICAL: Most wiring replaced including to masthead. All lights replaced with LED inside and out. Interior ambient LED lighting installed. 30amp shore-power connection with two battery charging system. Batteries also charged by outboard. VHF with masthead antenna.

PLUMBING: Holding tank with new manual flush toilet (toilet pump needs a new seal). Has a large water tank and 2 sinks though these are not used, but could easily be brought back to service. Automatic bilge pump.

COCKPIT: Adjustable swinging cockpit table installed which is great for lunch/dinners. Good line organization. USB power added to cockpit. Very nice tiller with extension. Compass and knotmeter. 2 danforth anchors Ė 1 overnight & 1 lunch. All safety equipment included Ė Life jackets, flares, air-horn, whistle.

*SOLD* Boat is going on to a new owner who I've directed this way!

Yea, i donít think thereís anything else like it on the market hence the quick sale. Interest from multiple parties as well. Most boats in the size/age range are not taken care of like our boat. Hopefully goes on to many more years of fun service. Iíll make sure they know about the amazing forum here without which i donít think DB would be what he is!

That matters a lot. When I was in the market for a C-25, I saw several boats that were poorly maintained and downright yuckie. I kept on looking until I happened upon Passage. It was spotless, well maintained and clean in all those hard-to-reach places. It was pretty much love at first sight.
Lesson for all: A boat for most people is not a "must have"--it's a "wanna have"--depending on an emotional response. I've sold my past three boats, including Passage, to the first people who looked at them, cash on the spot, based on obvious emotional reactions. The first eyeball impression also suggests how well the boat has been maintained and updated. That appears to be the truth here--david buoy might not have been this nice coming out of the factory.


Agreed. I looked at a lot of boats over a year time span and Andiamo was the best looking by far. Clean and well maintained. I was the first one to look at it and only a day or so after it was advertised. When I saw it I knew immediately it was the one Iíd been waiting for. Bought it on the spot.

Many of the others hadnít even been washed or cleaned up. Several were asking top dollar!

Best of luck!

Dave,

Avid fan of David Bowie and felt like he wasnít being represented on the water enough

Thanks guys, appreciate it. Tough circumstances and essentially getting evicted from the slip weíve enjoyed for 8 years and our options with a new kid donít allow for a slip without a finger pier so itís unfortunately time for us to move on

I sailed with Rob and the boat is exceptionally clean and meticulously maintained.
