A C&C 34 for $10-12k is not likely to be in excellent shape, regardless of how the boat may look. If you proceed be sure to have the surveyor test the hull core very carefully, this was the first model where C&C switched to cored hulls. One keel impact with the 34's combination of keel design/hull construction would easily produce a totally soaked core - which would give a boat this age a negative value, regardless of what it might look like. Looking for a C&C 30 or 32 or 33 or 35 I or 35 II would get you a much better boat.

I agree with the above statement as a C&C owner (solid hull, cored deck) and as someone at a club where 40% of the sailboats are still C&Cs. A lot of drill and fill, every spring.

I'd have to agree that you should proceed with caution. Most low-priced boats are priced such for a good reason, and if the boat does have a cored hull, it really needs to be properly investigated. Also, depending on how long the boat has been sitting on the hard, the cored hull may not accurately reflect the problems it would have were it sitting in the water—since the water could have dried out.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

no worrys mates before I would lay out any cash I'll be sure to take along me rubber mallet Speakin of balsa core hulls/top decks/transoms I've seen some intrsting new tec. for soliding those rot spots out actully it may be the 33 not sure on year/model personally I rather the full keel alberg hull myself but if a song n dance gets me a 34ft boat in good shape may be worth a go the real problem is moorings around here this place is a joke in the summer maybe a few shollow water mooring around but thats about it

Northeaster is on a distinguished road
Any chance someone could give a brief rundown of what years / models C & C switched to cored hulls?

A good history of the company can be found here. The quite a few of the various C&C Boats and their specifications can be found here.

all what I think of as first and second generation designs were solid hulls (24,25, 27 I, 30 I, 32, 33 I, 35 I and II, 38 I, 39), switch to cored hulls began around 1977 with the introduction of the 29, 34, and 36 and all subsequent models. I am not sure where the 40 and 41 fit.
IMHO opinion you cannot go wrong with a good version of the first and second generation boats, with the 30 Mark I and 35 Mark II boats as my personal ATFs, and you can't go right with one of the newer boats.
