Carter 33?

I am wondering what everyone's opinions are on this boat. It is in Benalmadena, Spain. I had a look on it and it looks like it has good solid decks, minor corrosion on the mast and probably needs new rigging. The inside has virtually nothing (stripped and used in regattas) and a few old electronics.

Anyone know of any major problems with this model? Good buy or bad?

Re: Carter 33?

Hi Al -

I have a carter 33 built in Australia by Passage Yachts. It's my second yacht and so far, has been a fabulous, safe and reasonably fast vessel. I use it mainly for club racing with occasional trips away and only have great things to say about it.

I had to get all standing rigging done when I bought it; which was about $5k AUD.

My advice? Buy it if it looks in good condition!
