Why has this design philosophy languished while lard assed tub prevail?
I have always liked the look of those C&Cs, and they certainly appear to have a lot of comfort. I didn't realize that the transom opened up for the swim ladder! That reverse transom is one thing that really dates the design. People like the nice wide open transoms of more modern boats, and of course the extra beam aft means more space aft!

I should find a local 37+ to have a look at. I know my wife would LOVE that aft stateroom!

What is the difference between the 37+ and the 37R? (And why do they call it a 37+ when it is actually a 40? )
