$24,950 1987 C&C 35 Mk III Sailboat. Marvelous is my wonderful 1987 C&C 35. She is a great Bahamas-Caribbean-Chesapeake boat with a centerboard giving her the draft you want 4’2” up, 6’4” down. She also points like a C&C so she’s just an all around great sailing boat.
I set her up a year ago for cruising and spent three great months in the Bahamas, and then due to a job change, I had to move to the West coast.
Since it looks like it’ll be a few years here I’d rather pass her along to someone who can enjoy her than let her sit on the hard. Here’s some details and what I’ve done to her so far.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.
Classic hull speed formula:
Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWLA more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.
Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL
A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.
SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3
A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.
Ballast / Displacement * 100
A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.
D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³
This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.
Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)
This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.
CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)
The C&C 35-3 (MKIII) is a completely new design that replaced C&C’s earlier 35 footer.
Draft (BD): 6.40’/1.95m
Draft (BU): 4.16’/1.27m
Displacement: 12150 lbs./5511 kgs.
Ballast: 5700 lbs./2586 kgs.
