Our First Boat

Our home is a Catalina 36 Mk1 1984 model. The absolute perfect floating condo! 

If you have ever seen or been on a Catalina you will know that they feel a lot bigger than other boats there size. She has loads of storage space and lots of character. We specifically love the wood inside, it gives a wonderful homey feeling.

When we started the search for our home we compiled a list of 16 boats that were located on the eastern coast of the United States. We spent about a week driving from marina to marina looking at all the options available to us in the $10000 range. A few of the boats we saw were complete projects, that would need at least a year and a full refit. 

Of course Barefoot was the last boat on the list and the furthest south we planned to go. When we stepped on board we both got the feeling that she was perfect for us. We knew she was the one!
