Pros:
Cons:

This is a fast quality built boat. C&C's last and best. Points extremely well even with the wing keel and roller furling. Surprisingly good in light air (7-10 knots). Large cockpit is a pleasure at dock and when racing but could be difficult for shorthanded sailing. VERY good in choppy water. Only negatives so far is lack of shelves in large interior lockers and poor ventilation (fixed by adding solar vents). Difficult (but possible) to sail to her PHRF rating of 99 base.

Pros: Easy to single handle if properly rigged. Comfortable cockpit and salon. Deck hardware first rate. Separate shoer stall in head. Good performer in light airs. She is fast and has sleek lines
Cons: Hanging locker space is poor. Could have used a bit more power but still is a relatively easy boat to dock.

This is not my boat but that of friends that I have sailed on frequently here in the Pacific Northwest. The deep draft provides superb performance here in our deep waters and the boat tracks well and is easy to maneuver in tight moorage spots or at the dock the three blade folding prop is a real advantage. The boat is fast and performance even in our light summer winds is respectable in 6 to 10 knot winds. The boat has been out in the big blue around Vancouver Island and on open waters to Alaska and was stable and handled big swells. Even in the rough waters of the Straits of Juan DeFucca the boat is safe and stable.

The v-berth is a tad short and their is only one head but the separate shower is nice to have. The aft stateroom is comfortable although a little shy on head room. Storage could have been much better especially hanging locker space which is zilch. It has a good sea galley and the teak finish work is good. A dodger is a must in cooler or temperate climates as is heat. A welcome addition would be insulation on the hull to prevent condensation. Access to most systems on the boat is good to excellent. As with most C&C's the ventilation is not the best but the owners have added solar vents to compensate. This is a boat one or two couples could be very comfortable on for an extended trip but don't expect to hang a tux or evening dress.
