I have owned a 1980 33 C/C since 2002. They are GREAT boats. If you have priced them in Yacht World, you will see what these boats go for in Europe
. They are Lloyyd's Certified, built in Portsmouth by a very experienced yard. Boats were built to handle the North Sea. Mine has crossed an ocean or two. I have had many tell me that my boat rides like a much bigger (40ft) boat. It's always nice to pull up in a boat that is relatively rare in this area too, Lol. Please be mindful of the advice often posted on this board, however, that would you rather be working on a boat, or sailing it? when you decide, after survey
, how much work is this "bargain" boat going to be? Take your best estimate on time and $ and then double or triple it....no kidding.
