svsirius is on a distinguished road
I owned a Carroll built Frers 36 for 11 yrs. The hulls are the same, the foils are different, the deck is different, the interiors are different, and I don't remember if the rig is the same or not. Actually I found the build quality was fine on mine. Had no delamination issues, etc. The interiors on these are all over the map from full teak to stripped out. Depended on what the original owner wanted [all custom]. Ours had a full on teak interior and we were very comfy down below. I know of a sistership that was pipe berths and no wood at all [and we had the same rating - lover
PHRF]. Like all cored race boats of that era you need to look at them individually.
