Brand: C&C Yachts
Type: Sailboat
Year: 1980
Length: 34 ft.
Location: Buffalo, NY
Name: Air Craft


“Air Craft” is a fine example of the popular C&C34 cruiser/racer. The first thing you notice is how clean and well-kept the vessel shows. From the bilge to the topsides, Air Craft looks much younger than her 39 years old! The reliable Universal diesel and roller furling headsail makes for easy shorthanded sailing while the large cockpit is perfect for entertaining. Should you wish to race around the buoys with friends, she’ll do it in style and comparable performance though not raced by the current owners. Always kept in fresh water and turnkey ready for a new owner, Air Craft may be seen by appointment. ***** A recent survey detected some higher moisture and delamination in the hull at the bottom/mid-ship which resulted in the low asking price for this boat.
