C and C sailboats

Hi
I am currently researching sailing vessels
in hope of buying one soon.
I have a very large list of "Bluewater" sailboats I have found(Pacific Seacraft,Nicholson,etc)But I was wondering about the C and C line of boats,they sure look sleek and roomy.Could they possibly be stout enough for a cruise from the east coast,down to the Bahamas then eventually end up in Trinidad?

I forgot to mention,
I am speaking of the older 30'' and up boats.
I recently lost all my technical data in a PC crash,or I would figure it my self.
Does the Width of these vessels disqualify
them from a serious ocean cruiser or is there more to it?One article I came across
claims the MK1 series was designed as an ocean vessel.

Thanks again,
Jerry O

For the most part, C&C''s were developed as higher performance cruiser/racers. As such they are often influenced by the racing rules of the day. At times this produced very wholesome and fast boats. At other times it produced boats that were less seakindly than would be ideal.

Most C&C''s really do make very good coastal cruisers, far better in fact than most ''bluewater'' cruisers. They offer the kind of performance that means more time under sail and the ability to address the kind of sailing conditions that are most typical of coastal sailing venues.

They never were really designed as offshore boats in the traditional sense. Some C&C''s are suitable for the offshore environment but I would not make a wholesale statement that they all are.

Jeff,
Could you go into detail a little more as to the models that you think would stand up to offshore use?

Thanks

I know of several C&C 35 Mk I''s that have raced Newport-Bermuda, so they can take some punishment. They come back with more deck crazing than they left with, however. It can tire them some to be pushed hard in rough conditions.
