What is going on with cat prices

I spend way too much time on Facebook and lately have seen an increase in the number of what I will call older (1990-2000) but well known catamarans for sale for fairly reasonable prices compared to say six months ago.  Any thoughts on that?

That is a median age of 30 years plus or minus.  They mostly started life as charter boats as well.  Cat design and build methods/materials has and continues to advance.  They’re now owned by folks who are likely more marginal (financially) so the maintenance, rebuild, moorage costs are biting a bit deeper.  Also, marinas increasingly look away from ‘old’ boats and prefer newer ones.  It all combines to making it more attractive to unloading these boats by existing owners…
