Hi, welcome to this forum. You can find some information on this page . The C31HT is a good seaworthy sturdy boat but a lot is depending on the maintenance of the current owner of the boat that you want to buy. In what area is it located and do you have the hullnumber?

I have owned a Contest 31 HT for over a year, much of it spent working on the boat.  It is a heavy, stable boat with a lot of interior space given its size.  For sailing in the Chesapeake Bay I plan on purchasing a larger genoa. 

Both my boat and another Contest in the Chesapeake had problems with gelcoat blisters (1000's) below the waterline that were not evident on haulout or Survey.  The nice thing about the Contest is that the fiberglass is thick ans still in good shape after peeling the gelcoat.

You can use a translation program if needed

Good luck,
George
