Opinions on 1986 Irwin Citation 35

I''m interested in a coastal cruiser for North Carolina''s Pamlico Sound. I cruise with my wife and often another couple. We take weekend cruises and about twice each year we cruise for a full week to ten days. We are accustomed to an older C30 and it does quite well, but we''re ready for a bit more room. I know very little about Irwins and didn''t realize there was a 35''5" version. Insights and opinions are welcomed and needed.

Don''t have an opinion on the Irwin but a 35 footer is still going to be tight for (4) adults. I''d suggest that you look at something in the 38-42 foot range. I''m reminded of what Hooper said to Captain Quinn in Jaws, "I think we''re going to need a bigger boat"

I have an older Irwin and am very happy with it. I cruise Lake Michigan and find my 32 a nice size for two people on a longer cruise - say 4 or 5 weeks. For short weekends w/4 or more it has has been plenty big for us. I often sail with crews of 5 for a week. For some people, a 35 is a small boat, for others it is big. You have to know which you are.
