Hello there. I just registered a few minutes ago. Thank you for having me.
I am not sure I am doing this right or if I am in the right forum.
I would like to know which boat do you think is better built/stronger with less problems (if ever possible, eh eh) between a 1989 C&C MKIII and a 1990 CS 34 ?
I am curious and wouldn’t know which one to pick.

Thank you !!!!

What are your requirements ? Previous boats?

Ok. That’s good to know. I like the C&C 35. Just wanted to know if it was sting enough for the Great Lakes but also for possibly Florida and the islands... BTW the C&C has a 4.8 foot keel. The CS has a 6.3 foot keel.

Ps. I sailed a Catelina 34 and a Beneteau Oceanis 40 with friends in the Mediterranean. I am still learning though...

Every boat in good condition can do those places.

I have a 6.3 draft and have done all those places and never gone aground (meaning never having to get towed off)

Get the one YOU like best. If you truly like each the same get the one in best condition.

It really is simple it you allow it to be.

Hi,

You are looking at boats that are about 30 years old. It's impossible to tell you which one is better without seeing the boats in person.

Both are well known, well respected brands. The C&C was 'racier', the CS 'cruisier' but the boats are more alike than different.

Look both over carefully, pick the one that is in better condition.

Sail off into the sunset, have fun, enjoy life.

Barry L is right on. He used to race on C&C MKIII. I like the CS also. As he said more similar than different.
Choose the one in best condition unless on speaks to you.

My choices when a bought Haleakula 1983 35 C&C MKIII 24 years ago was CS 36, Sabre 36, Tartan 37. Haleakula spoke to me, plus she had a real turn of speed and pointing ability over the others though the Sabre was close.

Condition of the boat is most important. If you have any questions on the C&C feel free to PM me once you get 10 posts.

Let us know what happens.
