I had been looking for quite a while and knew this was the right boat who had the right owners that took care of her! She surveyed well and I think 34 feet will be a size that I won't outgrow for quite some time!

Hey Alfy,
We race with the Canoe Bay sailing Club. Did our last race of the year on Saturday so thats it until January.
I too used to race a San Jaun 24 when they first came on the scene. That was a long time ago now.
We spent probably about a year looking for our 32'. Looked at many boats in the 30-40' range but we ended up with this one at a screaming deal. About the only thing I have found wrong with ours is one of our window's leak. Talked with the local shipyards and they have recomended that we wait for warmer weather, then I am having them all replaced including the hatches.
Your 34' looks to be in amazing shape.

I loved the San Juan 24 for racing, I am thinking I will enjoy this step up in size for future racing! One of the reasons I went to the C&C was because of its reputation as a good racer/cruiser. I also spent a long time looking and waiting for the right time to buy. A leaky window is fixable, sounds like you also found a good boat!

We hope it's a good boat. It was a one owner out of RVYC. He had set it up for cruiseing but a lot of the goodies were out dated. I have been removing and replaceing things as I find them. It came with a brand new Yanmar which was a selling point.
I didn't bother with a survey as I don't believe in the survey industry, it's really quite a joke. I liken them to the home inspectors of years gone by as anybody can call themselves a surveyor with no experience what so ever.
I to have always liked the C&C. It's a good solid boat that many people seem to hang on too, for many years. I also found that they tend to hold their value quite well which is a testament to there construction.
I recommend joining a yacht club as the reciprocal moorage at other clubs is well worth the initiation fees.

Sounds a bit like my boat. Good condition and well cared for, but has some outdated electronics. Everything I need mind you, but it's nice to update them and it is on my list of things to get over time. I figured it's better to find a good quality boat with outdated electronics, but very well cared for, rather than the opposite. A new engine, well that is a score! When I was looking, it was something that was hard to find, and when I did, the price reflected. Maybe I will upgrade the power one day, but I am a "weekend mechanic" meaning I'm not afraid to work on a diesel motor and know how to maintain it properly. (basically) haha

I hear ya on the inspection industry. I have wondered of the qualifications of some of these people. Unfortunately for my case, I purchased the boat sight unseen....yes, I said sight unseen. haha I relied greatly on the broker, my own research, mechanical and hull surveys to make a final decision. Because that is all I had at the time. I knew I didn't have to see the boat to learn it's layout or sail set up. But I did need other people this time to provide feedback on it's condition.

At the end of the day, I made it over to see the boat about a week after the deal closed and loved it! =D
