    32 CC

    The weather was lousy yesterday (woke up to another 4" of snow). I am planning to run out there today. I'll give you an update tonight>

      naaahhh

      28 to 32 isn't worth the $$$ and effort - 28 to 35 on the other hand

        WOW!!

        Tom,

        I'm jealous!!

        I looked at the new layout 28 today. Mac has really improved an already great boat. The helm area can now seat 5 comfortably and 6 tight.

        He has also removed the livewell from the tramsom cap, which makes the cockpit feel much larger though it is about 6" shorter. (He lengthened the helm deck for more space and better access to the gears) The fishboxes are sealed in so no more water in the bilge.

        The windshield has a sleeker look with rounded cornerposts and sweeping wings. The wipers have been mounted on the lower frame so no more water thru the canvas openings.

        The head is now all starboard and the porthole has been removed.

        The galley and electric panel is now located completely on the port hull side and porthole has been removed. This affords more counterspace.


        I also looked at the 32 which was in the water. This boat is amazing!! Lots of room at the helm, plenty of bulk storage and tackle storage. Very clean efficient layout. Visibility is excellent, I just wish there was a second arm @ the helm seat. The dash on this boat was segmented into 3 spots for electronics.


        The first thing I noticed when I stepped aboard is that the boat did not move!! It seems real stable at rest.

        The cockpit is sized nicely and this boat had freezer plates in the sealed in deck boxes, nice option! It also had the livewell in the transom cap which I personally would not opt for.

        This one is powered by 440 Yanmars and must fly. Engine room space is adequate with these motors and genny.

        The cabin is very roomy, not what I was expecting. The queen bunk is quite large, and the seperate single bunk to port is long but slightly narrow. I would like to see Mac begin to clearcoat his interior teak rather than leaving it natural.

        I am sorry that I left my checkbook at home!! Hopefully soon there will be a 2001 28 diesel CC for sale on this board (which means I'm movin' up )

        Once again, Tom, I'm jealous!!

          Glad you got to see the boats. The 32 is nice is'nt it.

          Thats the one that I took pictures of when I went to the factory and are the ones under factory tour. It has the segmented dash because the parts were in the process of being made when I was there back in January. When I talked to Mac at the AC show in February, he said that it was changed to flat.

          I also did not get the livewell. Did'nt seem like a good option for me. I did however get the freezer plates in all 3 boxes.

          Backman, I tend to agree with you butt the 32 is really a lot more boat than the 28. You would be surprised. I was thinking of a 35 but new it is about another 100Gs over the 32. Even in the used market for a low hour model they are getting 340 + which was out of my range. I also like the helm deck better on the 32.

          Chris, get your order in and I will see you at the hudson next summer. Do you go there in your 28?

            when I grow up

            or more to the point when I get further along than 1/8 of my way through college tuitions I'll be looking at the 35 seriously as opposed to longingly.

            1 4 year private college education = CC28
            2 4 year private college educations - CC35



            I probably will try and hitch a ride with the CC32 in falmouth Harbor this summer just to feel the difference.

              Tom,

              I regularly fish Hudson Canyon with my 28. It's only 72 NM to the tip for me, so I'll see you there this summer.

              I have a few things happening for me this year and if all goes well, I'll order up over the winter!!

              I heard a rumor today that my local dealer is not discounting the Carolinas at all, and is not accepting trades. I am very unhappy! Has this become an industry standard for these boats or is my local guy just real cocky!!

              If this is not common practice I think Mac should know.
