Anybody run a 35 Carolina Classic?

I want to get back into an offshore boat before spring. Been weighing pros and cons of different boats and have it narrowed down to a few. The 35 Carolina Classic keeps rising to the top but I have never actually been on one.
Would anybody in the Galveston / Freeport area happen to have one that I could take a look at.
Also looking at Henriques andAlbemarleWhat is drawing me to the CC is the head sea ride, construction and performance with the Cummins QSC-540

I'm open to any advice or recommendations for other boats in this class.

I think there's one on D dock at GYB, but I don't know who the owner is. I'm thinking of the Express.

Cheers

My favorite over the years was a Delta 36 sfx in that size range. Liked the layout, headsea ride and most everything about it more than others. Just don't see many of them around.

Do mean this model JR?

If that's a quality good riding boat then it's a STEAL at <$40K with Cummins c block power even if it needs some TLC (which it really does).

Cheers

Only heard good things about the Carolina 35, maybe snappy on the drift but il take that for the ride.

I heard the same thing but its always going to be a trade off or a compromise. I want a solid boat that can eat up our Gulf chop, good performance and has an some accommodations for overnighters.
Check out this cutout from the bottom of a 35 Carolina Classic.

Im Selling a Luhrs 34 currently if you might be interested. Price is Firm at 90k

Here is the ebay listing.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/23304526185...84.m1555.l2649

Rides good in the gulf chop. Cummins power. I have put a lot of work into this boat for sure. She is turn key, nothing really needed to get out in the gulf.

That is the hull, but recall it holding lot more fuel and the steps were different. That is a great deal for that hull.

I think it's weird that the tanks are so small too. It probably has like a 40 mile range.

Daren's boat would be a good one to look at - I know it's well maintained.


And there was a Blackfin 38 Express down in the Corpus area that I saw on Craigslist a few months ago but it's not on there anymore.
