I saw my first Catalina 250 at a boat show in California when I was about 18. Now, after twenty-five years (including sixteen years of lurking on this forum), a wedding, a college degree, a law degree, six kids, three car loans, two mortgages, and a delightful vacation some years back where I got to meet forum member, gentleman, scholar, and Mystic port captain extraordinaire Dave Bristle--I am finally in the market for a boat of my own.

If you happen to be aware of any listings for a gently-used Catalina 250 water ballast with wheel steering and trailer, please feel free to pass it on to me! I'm in Utah but am looking pretty much anywhere west of the Mississippi River.

Congratulations Crystal Blue with your "find".

Thanks to our Catalina International Association, the boat was located and "found", on this forum

I believe I've found one, folks; thanks for all the help and resources! Details forthcoming . . .

Try this website. People from all over the country sell boats on this site despite it's name.

Hi Jim,

Hereís a post on the Swap Meet.
Itís a 2006, C250 Wing-Keel in Loveland, CO
Hull 874 with a trailer.
Also with a marine head (not a port-a-potty)
This is one of last years built.

Correction: I just looked at the photos--it's a wing. I don't know what that means to you... As I recall, the WK has about 5" more headroom below and is reported to be "stiffer." But I can't recommend this as a way to buy a sailboat (sight unseen, no survey contingency, etc.).
Stinkpotter Posted - 04/09/2023 : 09:42:16
Jim: Check this posting. No evidence of whether it's a wing keel or WB, but it has a trailer (maybe a clue) and it's not far away...

Dave... you're irreplaceable!

Ain't nobody gonna come along and offer to replace you. You're stuck with us and we're blessed to have you!
