CS36T? Buy it, buy it, buy it. I promise you will love the way she sails. As I have posted here, they lack storage for cruising, and the vee berth sucks. Just to put it in plain language, 2 people can’t get in and out of the vee berth without someone getting a face full of butt. It is very cramped. There is a double in the saloon, but who wants to make out that bed every day? I think I have solved my storage problem and we’ll probably learn to live with the vee berth. You can easily find a more comfortable live aboard boat, but then you will sacrifice tons of sailing excitement. I had to replace my cabin sole and I used to keep the boat at Cedar Mills Marina on Lake Texoma. This is the same marina where the Valiant yacht is built. I had numerous boat owners look at the under sole construction including many Valiant owners. They ALL were impressed with the quality of construction on the CS36T. I knew this, but just need to be reminded every now and then, all boat are a compromise (maybe lots of room and sails like a tank, or great sailing and not as desirable an interior). Now that I have come to my senses, thanks to many on Sailnet, I’ll keep the Black Pearl and learn to live with her compromises. I have a dear friend who sails a 32’ Hunter. When we sail together, I literally sail circles around him on every upwind tack. Sometimes he gets me downwind, but then I don’t have the Pearl set up for downwind sailing. Good luck with your purchase, you won’t go wrong with the CS36T.
