If it surveys well and you like its slightly pokey (OK, "cruiser-oriented") sailing characteristics, I don't think 35K is unreasonable, particularly if the engine and exhaust is a lot newer than the 35 year old boat.

There's one I walk by at a friend's club and while I would prefer a Corbin 39 in that sort of "bathtub coaming center cockpit" style, I think it's a fundamentally decent boat of its time and would make a roomy and dry coastal cruiser that you could easily live on.

This one is practically a pilothouse...looks nice!
