Re: Racer / Cruiser 35 ft

Not just about the PHRF rating but also the fun of sailing it.

Hard to beat our C&C 35 MKIII with a 117-127 PHRF. I sails way inside other boats like the aforementioned Benes close hauled. Course it is the old IROC design without the fat ass. It also is a quite comfortable cruiser for a couple with and over sized length on the v berth, plenty of space fore dinner plates, and bottles of wine.
Comfortable head room and settles. Great cockpit for comfort and racing. Easily single-handed. They double as a sound cruisers without the spartanness of the faster J boats. I think BarryL race on one.

C&C 35 are/ were a 1 design racing class on the Great Lakes where there are plenty, but plenty on the east coast also. Haleakula has retired from racing ( sans few friendly bear cans) And has been a quick cruiser for a number of years now.
BarryL and SanderO like this.

We love sailing and will go in about any weather( except rain, unless obligated). we currently have a fast 26 footer but little accomodations. looking to improve but at a somehow faster pace then your regular weekend sailor. Ericson are out of the pictures, Tartan 3500 is limit, rather pricey for a 25 year old boat( certainly better build compare to more recent) but does not get my heart going.
There’s a nice C&C 99 for sale in Charlotte. Bruce Hill Yacht sales.

Re: Racer / Cruiser 35 ft

I've been aboard the First 36.7 at the boat shows, and my impression is that the V berth is meant for one person, children, or small adults, and is the smallest V berth I've ever seen for that size of boat.

Yes, that was my impression too. That would be a result of placing the head forward. I would think the aft berths would be the better option. I dont know why they made them all 3 cabin models, but that is why we didnt like the interior of the 36.7.

Certainly if you can get into a Jeanneau 36i or even an older Sun Odyssey or Sun Fast 35/37 you will get a much nicer and more functional interior than the beneteau or C&C, although you will sacrifice some performance. If you can find a SunFast 35 within your price range you would have an excellent sailing boat with an excellent cruising interior.
