Re: Older 1980s C&C

Many 32's were fitted with gate valves rather than ball valve seacocks. If it's an Atomic4 beware of non-ignition protected equipment in the engine/fuel compartment. On many boats they forget to ground the fuel fill fitting to the fuel tank to the engine.

We have a 30' C&C that we sail in Grand Traverse Bay she points well and very much loved by the whole family including grand kids. We do have do calk the toe rail every few years to keep things dry.

Re: Older 1980s C&C

1980 was the big switch for C&C to more modern models. On these (and newer) you will find breakers (instead of fuses), ball valves (instead of gate), and yanmar diesels (instead of atomic 4). The 32 and 34 are both great boats....you won't go wrong. And the prices are coming down every year, as these boats get even older.

Re: Older 1980s C&C

I sail in the BC, Vancouver, Southern Gulf Islands and San Jauns.
With a bigger boat would like to go further. Sailed a C&C 24 sold last spring

Re: Older 1980s C&C

I sail on and maintain an '85 C&C 32 with Yanmar diesel. It is a good example of C&C quality and consistency. Aside from deck cracks on hard corners (forward where coach house meets deck, coming corners at back of cabin, helm seat port and starboard) the boat seems to stand up. All 32's have the dimple port and starboard on the hull below the chainplate close to water line. The galley floor near the stove is spongy. We'll pull the genoa tracks in the spring and rebed with butyl, as well as some other fittings. Boat is now with third owner, has seen some ocean time, and having spent a good deal of time in the cockpit locker I'm convinced the boat took a T-bone hit near the port secondary winch. No indication of bottom blisters.

Typical C&C repair completed - cabin windows replaced, hatch lenses replaced, some typical hardware replacement like stanchion bases, blocks, mast collar casting.

We have done well in club racing matching another 32.

All in all a good boat.

Where will you be sailing?
