Re: 30 vs 33
Agree... very pretty, classic C&C. I think at a dollar for dollar level I'd go for the 33 if you've got space for it. Very high row-away factor, it's gotta be a more powerful boat than a 30 and has a much larger cockpit.. half the length difference is probably right there.
V-drives are a bit of a PITA though.....
