A dealer brought one in for sale. It sat around for over a year before finally disappearing off his dock. I see that it is on the market again. My son, a marine mechanic, had a close look at one of the AC35 boats & declared it a piece of junk. Being nice. Looks nice as far as areas easily seen go. It is the hidden stuff & the way it is put together.
