This classic boat design represents the best of the the Golden Age of the C & C legend. Its moderate displacement and relatively narrow beam combined with fine entry, long overhangs, and true 35 ft 6 inch length provide good penetration, and easy motion lacking in more recent very beam designs. It is very fast with hull speed over 7 Kt, and has remarkable windward ability, as well as heavy weather performance. This C&C 36 can be relied upon for safety and quality of construction. Its real teak interior is comfortable, functional,, is clean, attractive, and adequate for day sailing, racing or cruising. The deep dry cockpit, high bulwarks, and double lifelines make this an excellent family cruiser with ample performance for club racing.
This is a SAILING sailboat, not a floating Winnebago that sails like a bar of soap. For those interested in racing: C&C 35 Mark I's had a PHRF rating of 130, the significantly larger stock Mark II's were said by the designers to rate 125 but sail much better. The Mark II has an 11 inch greater over length, more than 2 and a half FEET longer water line length, more freeboard, and 3,300 lbs greater displacement. Later built 35 Mark III's were down sized to Mark I dimensions, are much lighter built and hardware equipped, and while fast, are a major step backwards in quality. Currently racing Mark II's seem to measure 126 to 128 seconds. The early stock 35 Mark II's were criticized by some hard core racers looking for a slow rating advantage in a very fast boat. Some thought they were tender, and did not point high enough with huge racing headsails and the standard swept back keel. A number of them were modified with a slightly heavier full fin design with more lateral area that was a huge improvement in performance and handling. We can beat and reach with J-35 boats in the 70 seconds/mile class. We have not had this boat measured, but I expect that the improved keel would penalize the rating a few seconds, small price for the performance gain.
