Advice on a new 30-34ft boat
How about a C&C? The C&C 99 is a nicely thought out performance cruiser that is beginning to build a racing following, not that it matters. But it is well built, with modern foils underwater, and a very easy to handle layout.
I have only been out on one once, but was impressed by the fit and finish, and lively handling.
That and they have wone a few awards in the Boat of the Year" catagories.
