A C&C 34 for $10-12k is not likely to be in excellent shape, regardless of how the boat may look. If you proceed be sure to have the surveyor test the hull core very carefully, this was the first model where C&C switched to cored hulls. One keel impact with the 34's combination of keel design/hull construction would easily produce a totally soaked core - which would give a boat this age a negative value, regardless of what it might look like. Looking for a C&C 30 or 32 or 33 or 35 I or 35 II would get you a much better boat.
