Two completely different boats. The only common factor is they are both large boats available for very low prices. There is a reason for this.....no one wants them....That means that in a couple of years when you want to sell, you won't be able to get out without a major loss.

The Grenfell is a large, older wooden boat, with all that implies. If you have never owned a wooden boat, stay away. The CC has twin very thirsty (2-stroke) V-8 diesels, at a minimum $50 per hour for fuel, plus lots of oil. Both boats have somewhat rare engines, if you have no experience with old and rare diesels, stay away.....

Also from the CC pictures you need to be a midget to get into the engine room.....
