Yes well unfortunately not everyone has the money, time nor chance to try out more than a couple of boats themselves so recurring to the opinions of others, properly adjusted by credibility of the source is all you've got when trying to narrow down the plethora of option out there as far as boats are concerned..

So yeah.. One random opinion in the Internet from an unknown .. Not losing sleep over that.. Keep getting the same opinion 10 times .. Hmm one wonders. Then hear similar things around the marina including some disatisfied owners themselves.. You'd be a fool to just ignore all that input.

Like I said.. Wish there was a "delete thread" button here

I believe the 36cc (1998) has the same hull,ballast, keel and rudder as the Beneteau 361 (1999), both boats being designed by Berret-Racopeau.

The only difference is that the 36cc has more windage due to a higher lateral profile to be able to offer a "king sized" aft cabin. The seaworthiness was very similar even if we can argue that the extra height on top and the crew weight elevated can contribute for a slightly smaller stability.

It is certainly not more seaworthy than the 361 and I have once heard someone complaining about the excessive lateral movement one experiences sitting high on the raised cockpit (but it was regarding a bigger CC Beneteau).

Both Beneteau and Bavaria tried the market at about the same time with CC boats derived from their AC boats but both stop producing them rather quickly.
