Chris Craft Caribbean 35
 
I'm considering purchasing a Chris Craft Caribbean 35. Anyone sailed one or have experience with one? I'd love to hear your reviews. Only one posted in earlier threads from 2002.

CC Caribbean 35
 
neighbor down the road had one. He lost her in a storm. I'll ask him some good bad and ugly. Where will you be using her?

Just browsed through Yacht World at a couple, First Thoughts with out any first hand experince;
Good Designer Olin Stevens Can't be bad right?
The Cockpit is a bit odd and does not look comfotable in my opinion.

storm loss
 
to clarify this, he left her on anchor during a storm about 4 or 5 years ago. anchor dragged and she hit a bridge and went down. she wasnt insured. he started looking for a sistership.

I have buy a caribbean two year ago
(sorry about my poor english language - maybe you speak franch or italian? If yes please inform me)
It' a merveillous boat, soft in the wave crossing, she get a feeling of solidity and the interiors are confortable.
the boat it's a old lady with 35 years of life, ketch sailed, a little bit undersailed for the poor winds of the Adriatic sea.
If you need same information please mail me , I will be happy to get you the answer I know.
sincerely

I know of one that was cruised around the world by 3 ladies, they didn't say anything bad about the boat. It is an older design with a big cockpit, make sure you have big scuppers if you are pooped.

Chris Smith, founder's son sailed one out of Grosse Pointe Yacht Club in the mid 70's. As if that means anything.

....there is nice one in Michigan still for sale. All redone and the price is right. I think 30k or less, I would guess they are taking 15k plus in the shorts on this sale. Check out the for sale sights, easy to find.

happy sailing!

Tony only posted here on sailnet once and that was over 5 years ago. I doubt you will be hearing from him.
