Catalac

(SOLD, SUBJECT TO PAYMENT)

Razzler is for sale due to knee problems associated with my age (73). I weep a bit to leave boating after 60 years on the water but the time inevitably arrives. Razzler is a gem; We’ve had her for 11 years. She has a phenomenal spec for a pocket cruiser and is set up for both sailing and caravaning – and liveaboard, which she was used for by previous lady owner – including hull shoes for settling on beaches. One of the last Catalac 8M launched (’96). We’ve holidayed in Razzler in Scilly many summers. I’m a fairly purist sailor so Razzler’s engine, which we replaced for new in ’08, is under used.

Notes: (New Water heater needed – I will supply; Mast head light bulb & holder needed, ditto)

Differentia / inclinations:
* stern flotation chambers refurbished ’09, reconstructed into airtight spaces with Henderson ‘lifeboat’ hatches – get occasional cupful of condensation (have made a tool to sponge dry when this occurs) – I consider this better for boat longevity than the original polyurethane filled chambers, which eventually absorb water and become inefficient.
