Esprit du Vent

Paul Alcock's picture

Esprit du Vent is a 1987 Catalina 34 sloop.  She is clean and well equipped.  One of us is a professional marine propulsion engineer who has kept her diesel engine running at peak performance.  Due to the large number of Catalina 34s produced, parts for this boat are easy to obtain.  This model has sold well over the years because it is a high value family cruiser/racer.  Because this boat has a wing keel her shallow draft allows her to sail and dock in places other sailboats can not go.  She has given us years of pleasure in my retirement, and I am sad to give her up.

Esprit du Vent is a United States documented vessel (915364). This sailboat had a marine survey in 2018. While she was in the yard, she had the bottom painted with Pettit Ultima SR-60 Antifouling Paint. We are asking $32,000.
