Pros:
Cons:

Liked the C&C 29 so much on a charter in the Pacific Northwest three years ago that I came home to San Diego and bought one. I agree with the comments others make about being slightly overpowered in a breeze. However I always feel that the boat is in complete control. The steering is rock solid and turns on a dime. The feeling I get from driving my Honda - tight responsive and reliable - is the same feeling I get from the C&C. It is a quality boat that the surveyor said would make it across the Pacific with no problem - provided I could hang on!!!

Pros:
Cons:

With only one year under my belt, I think I chose the right boat. She single hands fairly easily, and is great to sail with only one crew, more is better. A little tender initially, but then sets rock solid, even with a little too much sail up in a stiff breeze. Points quite high, even in fairly light winds.

Pros:
Cons:

Had boat only one year so far. They sell quickly so scooped this one up when it came on the market. Had everything that I wanted to sail and everything the first mate wanted to stay aboard including refrigeration and hot water with a shower. Sails great in the changing conditions of the Great Lakes. Will pass most boats on the lake in light air and the roller furler makes it easy to reef when the wind picks up. Sails great with the genny only when single handed sailing in a breeze. As others stated, feels like a sports car with great manners. My boat was well maintained by previous owner and had no problems with the survey at all. The decks are dry and the hull is sound. The boat needs a quick hand in following seas, auto pilot does not respond quick enough to compensate.

Overall, very happy with her.

Pros:
Cons:

My Dad bought this boat almost twenty years ago and we mostly sailed on the York River in Va., but now more in the Chesapeake Bay. She seems to handle very well in 10 to 15 kt winds. A great boat for two people to handle and for a overnight cruise. When running the engine in the marina, she can turn on a dime after cleaning the hull and prop. A little tricky when in reverse because of prop walking to the port, but just have to expect it. If there is one compliant I have, it's is the size of the head/bathroom, very cramp. But it's not meant to a live aboard or long term cruiser. Very good boat for the long weekends and first boat for a small family. Still have most the original hardware and rigging. Even the Yanmar diesel engine is running fine, just need to do all the maintenance and she will last forever.

As a kid I used to crew on a 1976 C&C 30 and enjoyed the rock solid feel of C&C Yachts. Now an adult, I bought a C&C 29 and LOVE this boat. She is a great sailing boat, and is easy to sail single handed. Would I buy one again? absolutely!!

Pros: Quality of the construction, performance (very good racer-cruiser)
Cons: A little small for cruising only

As I mainly race in the Quebec City area I really love that boat. Really a great performer if you have the right crew with you. It is also a simple boat that does the job for a long weekend for two persons.
