Pros:
Cons:

I own hull #335 w/diesel & tall rig. While I have only had this boat for two seasons, I am very pleased and impressed with both performance and creature comforts. Anyone who knows C&C, is well aware of the line's history and pedigree. The 34 is, in my opinion, a classic example of C&C's stout build and beautiful lines. Roomy and good looking, she is easy to sail and quite forgiving for a boat of this size. The biggest issue that I have encountered to date is water absoprtion through hull cracking into the balsa core. Over the couse of a full season, a substantial amount of weight/water can be "taken on" via leakage from this condition. I am presently involved in a major makeover involving removing the bottom paint and rough sanding the gel-coat, then applying numerous layers of epoxy, then re-bottom- painting. Even so, I would recommend this boat to anyone looking for a solidly built cruiser that has both considerable range and the ability to cross oceans. I looked at numerous 34's before buying mine and ALL of them had cracks around and above the keel stub, so I would warn anyone looking at ANY boat that is constructed in this manner, to pay special attention to the stage the boat is at, regarding capillary leakage. With 20 year old fiberglass boats using balsa core construction, it's not a case of "if", but rather "how much" this process has advanced.

Pros:
Cons:

The R-23, designed by Mull in '71 is a quick and stable mini-yacht. Ranger Yachts of Costa Mesa, CA built a stout solid hull. Weak points are water leaks at chainplates and other deck penetrations if caulk has been ignored by previous owners, and original O/B mount not strong enough for the heavy 10hp-4 strokes often seen on them.
