Re: Tartan(s), Sabre, Pearson(s), C&C(s), Catalina(s) - "Chesapeake Draft"
I "moved up" from a C&C 30 MKI to a C&C 30 MKII. Draft for the wing keel is 4' 10"
Space down below is bigger than most 30 footers, including the Catalina 30.
Aft cabin, walk through transom, aft head with room for a comfortable shower, six opening ports (not including the companionway and forward hatch), big lazarettes, propane locker and 6' 2"+ headroom throughout the cabin.
I think if you compared this boat with most other boats below 34' you would be amazed.
Did I mention it's pretty darn fast and easy to sail?
Rob, never been aboard a C&C 30 MKII. Just looked at one online. Interesting boat.
One thing I should mention with the Catalina 30's is that the MKIII boats (after '95) are different in a lot of significant ways from the earlier boats. It's not just the open transom.
