In addition to survey as been mentioned would also cost out sails, as you noted those were worn. You might have a sail loft inspect potentially repair current sails to postpone buying new. I just had a new mainsail made for Bristol 35.5 which was approximately $3500. So a substantial cost even w/o replacing the headsail. Another way to go is buying used thru local or online sail loft. I looked for 3 yrs also and made offers on a couple of boats before buying current. Couldn't be happier , but in the moment when a Boat lost to other buyers i thought I just lost the most fantastic boat. Then a wk later I found another fantastic boat. Would recommend that you attend the survey, so you can learn, question the surveyor and ensure that the survey is complete. Good luck and enjoy the hunt.

Just better built. I owned 3 C&C's over the years, the last one was a 36. They are excellent racer cruisers so no bad mouthing them but they just are not built as well as the CS.

Re: I just found this incredible 86 C&C 35 might make an offer!

The asking price is quite high for that boat. No doubt he is trying to recoup the awlgrip job. It should be more in the low 30K range.

The windows will likely leak. If they are not when the the boat is stationary, they likely will when you are out sailing and the deck twists slightly. The seal was never designed to last 30 plus years. Any tell tale water stains on teak trim below windows can easily be cleaned off making it deceiving for detecting any leak history. Not a huge problem to fix however. I did it on mine. The trick is to completely remove the polycarbonate and re install it with a two part sealing adhesive compound like sikkaflex 295 uv and the associated primer. Using the primer is key! Look on the outside to see if someone has added any screws. A sure sign that leaks are being chased. The fact that silicone is on the inside already answers the question in my view.

The cabin sole has been soaked at some point. Look at the water stains on it.

Not a cored hull, only the deck. A very very nice boat to sail.
