Looking to upgrade to a boat to sail the gulf coast of Florida and beyond, well this boat is not only perfectly suited but comes with a complete package to get you sailing your dream. The past commodore of the sailing club is selling his much loved 36ft Catalina “Vela” and wishes to help her new owners with all the help and advice that you need. Included is a year’s membership to the club with all the support from its members that you could possibly need. Sailing lessons, cruising advice, maintenance tips and his store room full of spare parts are just the beginning. You will enjoy the comradery of this active club with both on and off the water events and a membership who just love to help in any way they can.  Originally a fresh water boat from Chicago, Vela moved to Florida where she has been fully maintained by her current owner; take a look at his log book to see the extensive maintenance performed in recent years. This boat is going to sell to a sailing enthusiast who is looking for a well maintained yacht. Designed and built in the U.S. by one of the most successful sailboat builders in the world, the 36’ Catalina is the perfect blend of balance of size and performance, known for Great Coastal Cruising Comforts. Well-designed accommodations for a family of 7, she’s spacious above and below deck and lines are rigged to the cockpit for single handed sailing.  She’s been extremely well cared for and has an abundance of newer equipment.  Multiple engine room updates including transmission, riser, exhaust system, engine hoses, fresh water pump, stuffing box, batteries and more.  The interior is spacious with berths for 7, full galley, large head compartment with shower and ideal for coastal cruising or day sailing, but equally perfect for extended trips. She is powered by a single 23hp Universal Diesel with enough power to run all accessories including electronics, galley amenities and more.  She has a fully enclosed cockpit for when the weather gets rough plus new cockpit cushions.
