30 vs 33

Anyone got a comparison of a mid-70s 30 vs a similar vintage 33? Other than 3 feet obviously

Re: 30 vs 33

I'm not sure what kind of info you're looking for. Try these for the standard (non-shoal keel):

30': C&C 30-1 (1-506) sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

33': C&C 33 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com

The line drawings might give you some insight into the layouts, and the dimensions are all there for comparison purposes. Even with the line drawings, I still have trouble envisioning the boat sometimes, so I find this site helps:
C&C Sailboat Photo Gallery

You can also search Yachtworld or Sailboatlistings to get additional pictures.

Re: 30 vs 33

Hey Paul,
Have you been looking at that C&C 33 winch farm in Vancouver?
By the way it's the Easter Regatta this weekend and I still need crew......

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.

Re: 30 vs 33

Thinking more of the intangibles, relative stiffness, apparent space, just more general stuff really. Seems very little difference in prices between a 30 and a 33, wondering if the extra 3 feet is worth the extra running costs.

Re: 30 vs 33

Flickr: kitfox_C&C's Photostream <--- that one? Nice looking boat, I wonder if she still looks that clean 2.5 years after the photos were taken? she actually ticks a lot of boxes, not white (although I am not ruling out white boats!), and that nice red velour interior, all I need is a pipe, smoking jacket and a couple of lovelies shimmying round the mast and that's the perfect interior
The 33 certainly has beautiful lines, one of C&C's most attractive designs I think.

Re: 30 vs 33

Agree... very pretty, classic C&C. I think at a dollar for dollar level I'd go for the 33 if you've got space for it. Very high row-away factor, it's gotta be a more powerful boat than a 30 and has a much larger cockpit.. half the length difference is probably right there.

V-drives are a bit of a PITA though.....

Re: 30 vs 33

Hey Paul,
I agree, the 33 footers' lines are eye candy and just scream C&C.
I hadn't noticed the date stamp on the photos but yah 2 1/2 years can be a lifetime when it comes to boats. Still a good looking tub though. I see some water stains on the wood but it looks pretty clean otherwise, espiecially the motor.
As far as the regatta goes check out this link, Canoe Bay Sailing Club, Sidney B.C.
There are not a lot of boats registered yet, but it's a pretty layed back bunch of guys we sail wiith and some people just show up on the day. It would be nice to catch all three races but that will depend on how my hand feels.

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.

I'm up for it, either day, or both.
