C&C 121/ Tartan 4100
 
I am looking at purchasing a new C&C 121 or a Tartan 4100. I have been imnpressed with both of these boats and am aware of the performance variable between C&C and Tartan. I am looing for owner input..

Any owners of either of these two yachts have input for me?

I guess that I would have to ask, "What do you plan to do with these boats and where do you plan to sail them?"

My question would be:
Why limit yourself with these two boats?
you can also look at Dehler 41 and Grand Soleil 40 as alternatives.
Personally I found Tartan''s very overprized and I don''t like the cockpit layout and sail handling plan of the C&C 121...
Good Luck

Tartens are one of the best built production boats one can buy. See Practical Sailor. Are you going offshore? Tartans are built to do just that.

Thanks for your posts. I apologize for the delay.

I will be crusing up and down the midatlantic region of the US offshore.

The Tartan 4100 seems like a real nice boat. Do you rally think they are over priced?

The C&C 121 also seems like a very capable boat with a higher performance orientation.

I have not heard much about either one of these two rather "new" boat lines. I understand that Fairport yachts has only been producing them for about 5 years or so. We are trying to obtain more information from owners or those who are somewhat knowledgable.

Thanks
