I'm a proud owner of a C-400 Mk II hull #337. I was torn between purchasing either the 400 or the 42 but have never regretted my decision. I wasn't sure about the dual helms at first but after sailing with them I love them. Not only do they give great access to the swim ladder but getting our on the rail and steering couldn't be nicer. After having been an avid racer for 30 years I opted for the in mast furling. I'm sure I gave up some performance but it's not noticible and it makes the boat the easiest one to sail that I've ever owned.
