Looking at 35-38'''' cruisers

I am looking to buy a blue water cabable boat around 35-38 feet long. My budget is 50,000-70,000. I would like to do some racing as well. I would also prefer a boat newer than 85 or so, but a well-built older boat would be OK.

I went back through the archived messages here, and from what people say here and from my other research, I have found a few boats to look at, and was just wondering if people had some opinions... Here is my current list:

1) C&C 38 Landfall. Seems nice, but most of them are older than I want. What sort of hull intergrity problems might these boats have? Is the blistering going to be bad on most of them?

2) Pearson 36 (models newer than 85 only). Look like nice boats, reasonably fast. I don''t know what sort of cruising possibilities though.

3) A J-35 or -36. Good racing boats, but how is their cruising?

Anyone want to recommend any other boats to be on my list? Anyone have any comments on what I have on there now?

Thanks,
Josh

If you get very lucky, you might find an early 1980''s Mark I Sabre 38. Get on the Sabre e-mail list and see what you can find. Good luck! Jack

We have great fun cruising in our J/36 (see description in SailNet''s boat pages). It has an interior (!) and goes fast too. Built in ''81, they price at about half of a J/35. C&C landfall may be a bit slow to race, if you''re headed in that direction.

Why would any one go to " www.a1line.com " when your obvious total lack of ethics as evidenced by spamming this forum and violating its rules against commercial posting shows that you are a totally untrustworthy person?

Josh,
my e-mail is to the boat, I have been sailing my own ALUMINIUM 38ft cutter for 3.5 years and have lived aboard most of that time. Don''t dismiss Aluminium - it has proved brilliant for me. I''d also like you to know that my boat ''Daze Off'' is actually for sale - ONLY because I want a bigger one.

Good luck in your searches.

Should mention to you a boat I am selling. It''s a 1983 C&C 37 CB. She''s solidly built, sails well and is good shape. It''s not the boat if you want to get more serious about racing, but she can hold her own for the occasional racer.

I did turn her over to a broker, but if you go to www.hopeconsulting.com/boat it will redirect you to the yachtworld.com listing.

The C&C CB is a nice looking boat. seems like it was on the market in the fall. could you explain the CB and how it functions?
Actually I am looking to buy in the fall, and have been "shopping" for almost a year.

I actually went to see your boat last weekend... small world.

I was impressed. It looked to be in pretty good shape for its age.

You might want to clean it up some though. The main cabin had cushions scattered everywhere, and that sort of thing doesn''t make for a good first impression.

If the boat is still on the market in a month or two, once I have seen a few more boats, I will certainly come back for a second look...

Man, this boat buying thing would be so much easier if all the boats were in the same place at the same time...

Josh
