I'm looking to buy a cat. Something I can use to entice friends and family into sailing with and take on holidays.

The only cat's I've sailed are my old Maricat 4.3 (now sold) & my A class (Exploder A15 C Board).

Requirements are:

Able to be sailed solo (when cat rigged)

Under 100kg fully rigged

Capable of good speed (yardstick under 80)

Ideally twin traps

Enough buoyancy & room for up to 2 adults & 2 kids

Ideally within a days drive of NSW 2480

Looking to spend up to $4500

I've seen a few for sale such as a Cobra (Brisbane $1700); Taipan (Local sailing club $4600); Stingray (Brisbane $3000) Hobie 16 (Brisbane $2450).


Just wondering if anyone on here lately has anything for sale meeting the above criteria. Doesn't have to have a trailer or beach wheels.

Or even can point me in the direction of the best value cat to fit my needs.
