C&C Cruisers


What year boats are you looking at? Today, C&C and Tartan are owned by the same company (since 2000?) and the Tartans are the cruisers and the C&C the racers (although they are racer - cruisers).

If you are looking at older boats, note that C&C made racers, cruisers and cruiser - racers. Models that have an LF (Land Fall) designation are the cruisers, like the C&C LF, 35 LF, etc.

Not all the boats have the traveler on the bridgedeck. The older 34 and 36 have it on the cabin top.

Good luck,
