I did alot of reserach on various boats and the C&C 110 come out on top for me. I purchased one last year and I''m very happy with it. I sailed mostly single-handed and double-handed races. The boat is very stiff, easy to handle and very fast! I did very good in my first season, and came in third place overall for the year of all divisions.
I also live on my boat most of the time. for me it is the best combination of speed, handling, liveability.
