c&c 33

Warning: double post. I posted my question below in the "Cruising" section a few days ago, so if you've seen it there, here are my apologies. You might want to ignore it...


Hello Guys,

I own a little old Pearson Commander (25 ft Alberg design) and was for years thinking of eventually upgrading to an Alberg 30 or Alberg 35 to go cruising longer distances. The myth of those old Alberg boats and their blue water qualities always made me wonder why they were so well priced. When I first read Jeff H's posts I was pretty shocked, and thought maybe he just fell off his too often and disliked them for that!
But since then I've been on some pretty nice boats and they do indeed seem a lot ..., well, better - at least here on the Great Lakes.
Anyway, there's a C&C33 MK1 that I'm interested in, but I haven't found much about it in these forums. I've heard that they are good build quality. I'm particularly wondering about how much of a cruiser this boat really is. It seems more geared towards racing vs. cruising. Can one single hand them? Do they have enough stowage space for extended trips? How comfortable could they be for a liveaboard? They are surprisingly spacious...

Thanks for your opinions!

Thanks for that pointer - I'll have to dig into their web site a little more. Haven't found much about the C&C33 and cruising capabilities, most people talk about its racing potential.
I was kind of hoping for Jeff_H to give his opinion. Jeff, I really liked to read your comments about the Albergs (even though they were like a cold shower) , and if you have an opinion about the C&C33 Mk1, I'd like to hear it.
