Ditto the C&C 35 recommendation. The C&C 35 Mk1 is a boat that is better than it has any right to be, even today.As a cruiser, the v-berth is generous, the galley a little stingy, but still usable, and the boat sails beautifully. As a racer, it is a boat that is still competitive, at least in our local fleet. This season, we've been consistently third, behind a pair of J Boats. If we can do that well with me in the crew, it says a great deal about the boat, One cruiser complaint is no skeg on the rudder.
