'Barefoot 2', a Catalina 36 Sailboat for Sale by her Owner

'Barefoot 2', my 1984 Catalina 36 is for sale in the USVIs. I'm currently undertaking a final Caribbean cruise before being handing her over to her new owners so I can deliver her to the surrounding islands if required.

A Catalina 36 sailboat for sale

Well-known for being an incredibly spacious sailboat, this Catalina 36 has been optimised for solo sailing, having been single-handed for 3,000nm in the previous two years between the US and the Caribbean (from Cayman Islands to the Leeward Islands all the way down to Grenada).

In the two years prior, 'Barefoot 2' was sailed 4,000nm from the US to Cayman Islands by her previous owners, a couple. 'Barefoot 2' is currently registered in Delaware.

'Barefoot 2' is in top turn-key condition, having benefited from many improvements and lots of care over the last few years. She is sailed/cruised regularly, has had a recent full professional rigging inspection and tuning, and has had her interior and exterior upholstery just redone. 'Barefoot 2' has been recently anti-fouled and is cleaned regularly.

A survey from October 2022 available on request.
