Owners' reviews of a Catalina 25 or a Matilda 20

We're looking ahead to the boats scheduled for review in an upcoming issue. This time around we're looking for input from current and former owners of Catalina 25s and Matilda 20s.

Do you own a Catalina 25 or a Matilda 20? Have you had one in the past? If yes, please get in touch with Dan Spurr at:

Do you know someone who owns or has owned either one of these boats? If yes, please forward this message to that sailor.

Specifically, Dan wants to know about:

  • sailing characteristics (good and bad)
  • level of quality in the build
  • what you like most about the boat
  • what you like least about the boat
  • specific problems you and others have had with this boat, like a leaky hull/deck joint
  • advice you would give to someone considering buying this boat

If these aren't boats you've sailed in the past, please stay tuned for future messages. We're bound to come upon a boat that is or has been in your collection over the years. Right now, if you have had experience with a Catalina 25 or a Matilda 20, we're anxious to hear from you. Thanks for sharing your experience with "the rest of us"!

The crew at Good Old Boat
