Hi, I am basically tossing up between a Catalina 7 & Noelex 25 and was curious as to the differences in the internal space of both and how they compare ie general size, headroom, berth size etc? Obviously the Noelex is a bit longer but does this equate to a larger cabin? Catalina 7 has ‘pop top’ not sure about Noelex? Cheers 👍

Some of the later Noelex had pop tops think headroom is about 5ft 8.Personally I would go for the Noelex you pay a bit more but they hold their value only boat I got my money back.Make sure you get a braked trailer.

Gosh is chalk like cheese, after been trailer yachts the differences kick in.
The C7 has a deep Skeg, with the pivoting centreboard intruding the length of the main salon. While the N25 has a vertical dagger board set forward giving an 'open' salon area.
There is also a difference in the static height in the cabin due to the raised floor in the C7 compared to the N25.
Visit a trailer yacht club or compound and step from one to the other.

Only the Mark 2 versions of the Noelex 25 have the pop top so look for the later models.

Wow looked at a second Cat 7 today with a different interior layout and was like a completely different boat, felt relatively spacious!
