1979 C&C 24, Tangerine

So with great sadness I am putting my baby up for sale. She's a 1979 C&C24 in really nice condition. She sails fantastically, fast, fun, responsive and yet she has very good manners and is very forgiving.
In the time I've been her keeper I have learnt so much from her, and in payment for her services I have looked after her well.

In no particular order she's had the following in the past couple of years:

All new running rigging, halyards, sheets, cunningham, vang, downhaul and lazyjacks.
Brand new interior, foam, fabric, curtains etc, we did this last year then got a puppy so it's never been used, and it's all stored in my spare bedroom over winter so it is still as-new
New electronics including a TackTick Sailmaster with new speed and depth transducers, Garmin 72h wired into the VHF for DSC
Professionally polished back to her former orange glory (I absolutely love the colour and she gets so many compliments)
And probably a ton of other things that I forget, or have conveniently hidden purchases from the Admiral.

She's also got:
Good sails
Good motor, an older 7.5hp Honda 4-stroke twin, always serviced regularly (done in September), runs like a top
Stove, galley with electric pressurised water, BBQ

This is the later layout in the interior, the head is up under the v-berth which means you get a much more usable galley and tons more storage, proper sized icebox etc.

She was hauled in September and I scraped and sanded all the old bottom paint off then repainted with 2 coats of antifouling all-over, plus two extra coats on the bow, fin and rudder.
All through-hulls, seacocks etc were checked.

Basically she is a great boat for cruising or just having a blast on a day-sail, she is ready to be used.
Only reason I am selling? Baby puppy is now getting on for 90lbs and he leaves nowhere for us to sleep, plus the Admiral wants more, well, you know the story I'm sure. I am on the lookout for a C&C30

I'm listing her at $7495 which I think reflects her sail-away condition, there are no other comparable models at this price in this part of the world.

Re: 1979 C&C 24, Tangerine

Ahh a bittersweet day. She is a beauty and will sell quickly. You have taken care of her well and imoproved her. Rare to see a 24 ft boat outfitted so well.

The real truth is the hound may have outgrown her

Hope the 30 close to you works out, we want to keep you in the C&C family

Re: 1979 C&C 24, Tangerine

Well I've had her 3 years and she was always a starter boat. If she doesn't sell fairly quickly I will just hang onto her as she has plenty of life left in her. I am currently arguing with the Admiral, Tangerine has plenty of room if I go away by myself
I do have another boat I am quite interested in, but I am not even going to put an offer in without selling Tangerine first, I refuse to be one of those "bought new boat, will sell old one at any price" types.

Re: 1979 C&C 24, Tangerine

You might look for a C&C 29 vs the 30. The 30 has no quarterberths, so the 29 (especially the 29-1, which is also beamier) actually has a larger interior than the 30.

alex (not a C&C owner, but I almost was before finding my Pearson)

Did you check out the donations at Harbour Yachts? If so, what did you think? I noticed Mr. Duck has been sold.

Re: 1979 C&C 24, Tangerine

Yep, I went in there earlier in the week to have a look about. Mr. Duck has indeed been sold, nice little boat with a bit of tidying up, even had beers in the lockers which is what I call a well equipped vessel.
The 30' they have looked OK, basically stripped bare, needs a lot of work, probably at least $10k spending on parts alone, but the bones seem fairly solid. Let's just say that if I can get Tangerine sold fairly quickly (without giving her away), I might be in a position to consider putting an offer in

Alex, the 29 from what I can tell is a much more tender boat than the 30, and getting heeling to an absolute minimum is one of the requirements from Boat No. 2. There are a few of them around though, I know of one getting listed pretty soon that looks to be pretty decent so I am not discounting anything at the moment. The advantage of the 30 having no quarter berth means that all the crap that would normally get stored on them can get stored in the huge lazarettes instead.
