Called the ‘best looking Catalina 27 on the coast’ by fellow marina patrons this vessel has been lovingly maintained, kept immaculately clean, polished, varnished, clutter-free, serviced and hauled regularly by a couple of passionate sailors. Simple to sail and easily managed by 1-2 people this ‘big,little cruiser’ is one of the most popular sailboats ever made for a reason.
‘BARAKETTE’ is ready to continue to explore Desolation Sound, the Broughtons and beyond. She sails remarkably well and is very comfortable for a couple of family on multiple weeklong trips or friends out for day sails. There are so many extras included, to make the summer on the water a sailor’s dream!
