I owned a 36 and sailed many 34's & 36's before deciding on a 36 due to the way she sailed. While they are similar the 36 tends to drive through the waves and seas where the 34 really tended to bob on and over the tops. I actually prefer the layout of the 34 but like the sailing of the 36 better. If you can sail both in 20-25 knots and you'll see what I mean.

I vote 36 but the 34 has a slightly better owners association though both are excellent. I have also owned an 80's C-30 and a 2005 C-310 and the 36 is the best sailing of all three..!
