The C&C 34 is C&C's first production cored hull...core goes right down around the keel stub. Check your charts twice and watch your depthsounder.

The Pearson is fun to sail - and fun to pass on my C&C! Both are solid boats.

Watch out for Sandy damage- there is no equivalent to Carfax.
Good luck!

We currently have an Irwin Citation 34 and love her. My budget "dream boat" is an Irwin 37 CC So much room!

Re: Pearson 36 VS C&C 34 VS Sabre 34 VS Sabre 30

Is 6ft draft ok ? Pearson 36 appears to be 6ft draft with longest waterline of them all at@30ft. The offshore appears to be the shortest at 4ft draft. Boatus has reviews of Sabre 34 and Irwin 37 by surveyor Jack Hornor BoatUS - Boat Reviews - Sabre 34 http://www.boatus.com/boatreviews/sail/Irwin34.asp My guess is you will love the woodwork in the Sabre. What a great decision to make.

Pearson 36 VS C&C 34 VS Sabre 34 VS Sabre 30

I am going to look at a Pearson 36 (1975) that a broker has listed I am interested as it seems to be in nice shape and seems to be set up for liveaboard now. There are a few other boats that I may look at when there (about a 2 hour drive so I want to minimize the trips). They have a listing for:

Same broker:
Pearson 36 (1975)
Sabre 34 (don't know the price or year of this yet but is a MKI)
Sabre 30 (1980) for a bit less than the Pearson 36
C&C 34 (1982) for about the same as the Pearson

Other boats I am considering:

Offshore 33 for sale by owner, not sure why I like it but it looks comfortable to sail and live on. Slower but the Cat Ketch rig has me intrigued. I keep coming back to this one for some reason. Will only get if it is a good price, but he is kind of high right now, but want out of the boat.

Irwin 37 CC. I know completely different but has lots of living space. I understand that this will be slower, but the two separate staterooms could make it worthwhile.


I think the Sabre 34 will likely be out of my price range but I don't know the price yet, they look like beautiful boats. The Sabre 30 I think will be a bit small for my needs, but am open to looking at it and again beautiful boats. The C&C 34 looks to be a nice boat and just a bit more than the Pearson, but I don't know how motivated the seller is. The C&C looks to be the most sporty of the of the lot.

So my question is how would these boats stack up? I am going to be living aboard, on the Hudson River for now, but want to head out and do some cruising in about 6 years. I am not a racer, but would not be offended by a decent turn of speed and am not upset by a more tender boat. So what are your ideas? What issues would stick out? I know the C&C is cored hull, so I have to look into moisture intrusion. I will get a survey prior to any purchase.
