Another very nice and seaworthy fast cruiser that'd be great up here. In a breeze, it should go to windward very well. . Racing? It'd be slow. At some point you'll have to make up your mind what you want. See if you can find a Nordic 34 as well. Only a few built, but nice, and no teak that I can recall. You can do a quick web search for each boat's phrf rating. It's a nice starting point for figuring out if it "looks" and "is" fast or not.
(The J-35c listed seems to be very overpriced for it's general condition and inventory... )
