C&C Yachts Article - Introducing The New C&C 101
Hopefully maybe sorta kinda another NA builder will start building some neat designed boats eh!
anyway, late here on the left coast of NA, so how is tomorrow working out for all the rest of the 22 or 23 times zones ahead of me in the world?
Olé!, this one seems to be made for you Marty
Very nice boat with impressive specs! A truly modern design.
From the bottom of her lead keel bulb, to the tip of her carbon fiber mast, the new C&C 101 is designed and built to accommodate the discerning sailor. The C&C 101 offers a hull design that is built to maximize performance on the water and incorporates the most advanced boatbuilding technology in the market.
An ergonomic deck layout with a wide open cockpit and an easily handled sailplan eliminates the need for an army of crew and guarantees to put a smile on all those who sail her.A functional interior to meet the needs of overnighting and distance racing eliminates parasitic weight, minimizes maintenance and guarantees maximum time on the water.
The all new C&C 101 is fast, fun, and functional.
The C&C 101 hull is designed to maximize overall performance without trending to any extreme, creating a boat that offers exhilarating performance on all points of sail. Her nearly 11 foot beam offersexcellent form stability and in conjunction with the 6'6” bulbed lead keel provides the stiffness to support a sail area to displacement ratio of 25.8.
With a BPA modified epoxy infused hull and deck, optimized uni-directional e-glass laminates, and synthetic hull coring, the 101 is the stiffest, lightest and strongest hull structure available in her size range amongst production builders.
The 101 features a fractional carbon fiber mast, carbon fiber rudder post and retractable carbon fiber bow sprit.Co-engineered by C&C Yachts and SP Systems, the world leader in composite engineering and materials technology....
...The retractable carbon fiber bow sprit and masthead asymmetrical spinnakers ensure exhilarating off wind performance while making the sailplan easily manageable when cruising or shorthanded.
Below decks, the new C&C 101 offers refined luxury in line with her pedigree.Lightweight composite components combined with varnished cherry cabinetry and laminated curved trims provide a spacious and comfortable interior while minimizing weight. Bulkheads are attached to hull, deck and interior components using engineered adhesives and epoxy resins; adding stiffness to the hull structure without adding weight....
Aerospace quality composites, modern construction techniques and careful attention to detail afford the 101 with an interior arrangement that belies her performance capabilities...

I hope they can make it affordable because this just seems to be a very interesting boat
The only thing I don't understand is the tankage. This boat with a super sailing performance will only need the engine as an auxiliary and a 18hp diesel engine needs very little fuel to keep running. I don't understand why this boat needs a 75L fuel tank. A 35/50 L tank would be more than enough and those extra 40L would be better employed in water tankage. 113L of water seems a bit short to me.
