Moving from a Hughes/Columbia, the C&C is a definite step up in speed. The boat is likely well put together in general, though you should check to make sure the balsa core hasn't gotten overly wet in spots. There was a C&C 36 at our club, and it performed adequately. They don't seem to be overly speedy, or blessed with a great PHRF rating, so if you're looking to race, keep looking. For cruising, though, they're well appointed and comfortable. They also look nice, which is a plus with any boat. Even if it's slow, you can be proud to point her out on the mooring once you've arrived.
