Why does he want one? Its an open bridgedeck boat. There are plenty of small cats with better layouts. If he is looking for the performance, he should consider a tri. There's a reason they did not sell many. They chartered them in the Bahamas. Maybe he can get one coming off charter.

check out the maine cat yahoo group. Post something there. The users are quite active and I think one or two 30's are for sale.

And if by chance you friend wants to step up to a 41' have him PM me. I am thinking about selling mine, that is a Maine Cat 41.

They sold about 60 of the 30' footers and 18 of the 41' footers. So I think more than a few people actually like the boat. Have you every sailed one?

Thanks for the tip on the Yahoo group. Will reach out there.

My friend has a limited budget and wants to sail/liveaboard in the Bahamas and Miami for 3/4 of the year. Doesn't want a Gemini, and views the open bridge deck as a plus.

I've sailed on and against them...they are a great boat.

Um...other than the Gemini, which cats are you thinking about? Goal is live aboard, but seaworthy for ~100k... I'll refer him if you know of any.

And I believe they are still in production from a respected builder...

Have you ever been on one?
Coming from a Corsair F24 MkII it's my idea boat. I'm not on a boat to be below decks.
They are a stout practical boat.
It's not a dockside luxury condo, if you want a boat that spends all it's time at the dock, and you hide below, nope it's not the boat for you.
