Hi. I'm in the market for a 32-36 footer and interested in chatting with you about your C&C 110. Could you email me a number I could call you? Thanks. jeff H

Look forward to getting your loos numbers. Funny, when I first got my boat, I bought a second-hand headsail from an Express 34 guy in Seattle. I think the name of his boat was Locomotion. Is that the boat you own now???

Seattle... just checked our current loos numbers early last week. I have them in the boat book. I'll get them tomorrow or the day after and pass them along. So you took a 3 second hit... you're at about 96?

Sorry for the delayed response. Yes that is my boat Sabrina on YachtWorld. I bought her from a guy in the industry who had upgraded everything and was sailing out of Newport, RI. He decided to add another 400 lbs to the bottom of the keel to make the boat a little less hot for sailing with his wife and young daughter. Since I cruise a lot with my wife and daughter, I found it worked well for me too, and left it that way, although I took another 3 second penalty on my PHRF rating because of the extra stability it gave the boat.
To tell the truth, I do not have rig tension numbers. The previous guy had marks on the turnbuckles for the general settings and they have worked well enough for us to finish in the money in the local PHRF races. If you have any numbers, I would appreciate you sending them on over.
By the way where are you located??

I have mine up for sale, but it is a long way to deliver it to Puget Sound.
Agreed with all the above!!! But of course I'm very biased. Is yours the one on yachtworld with the keel bump? PM me, I'm curious about your experience with rig tension, rake, etc... and that keel bump if it's your boat! (We have hull #1)

The C&C 110: fast, very well engineered, well built, will create a fun safe sailing experience and a comfortable life on board. More expensive than the other vessels you had mentioned, other than the Tartan 3700? Perhaps... in terms of dollars going in now. At the same time, the value of the investment or ROI should be considered as well. The C&C, Tartan and Sabre are all well established high qulity name brand boats.
The construction materials, workmanship and engineering that are all part of the world of C&C make it a unique boat and a pleasure to own. (No, I don't work for them nor am I a broker for them).
If you can make it happen, go for the 110 . It will be one of those purchases in life where you will be just so happy that you did. This is among the few "production" boats that many strive to own and sail.
