c&c 33mk ii vs c&c 34(1980/81) vs c&c 35 mk iii

Hello all. I am new to this group so I hope I am posting to an approprate group. I am interested in buying either a c&c 33 mk ii, or a mid 80's c&c 34, or a mid 80's c&c 33 mkiii. I am mostly a cruiser these days but there is enough racer in me to want a boat that performs well on the race course as well. My question to the group is: Which of the three above boats would you suggest would best suit my needs? It has been suggested to me that the c&c 33 mkii sails very well due to its low freeboard/low centre of effort. I have also heard that the c&c 35 mkiii sails VERY well upwind. Why is the c&c 34 PHRF higher than the 33 or 35? Is it slower? What about the interior volume of the 33 vs the 35? Which is better for cruising? Any caveats I should know about these boats? Hope I am not asking a question that has been answered a million times. If so, please point me in the right direction.
