The Nauticat 35 is very different from the 33 - So what you have heard might actually have been about the 33, which is not a good sailboat on any point of sail. (the newer versions are better).
The NC35 is also very different from a Westsail 32, as it has a totally different underwater profile (fin-keeled), but still a bit conservative - which explains the PHRF rating being high(ish) but still lower than the Westsail.
