Re: C & C Yachts

hamburking, you need to look at the date at the top of posts you search for and respond to. This one was from 2003 by someone who never posted again. Not that there's anything wrong with bringing an old thread back, but you should be aware of the age. :-)

Re: C & C Yachts

I assume you are looking at a C&C29mk1...the mk2 came out around 1980 and are much more expensive, not to mention smaller.

I highly recommend the 29...its a huge boat for the money, excellent build, great layout. However, the atomic 4 is not as good as a diesel yanmar, and there are going to be problems with soft decks, and possibly soft hull. Check the hull carefully as there is a cored section below the waterline, aft, which can be a big repair.

CBinRI It is uncanny how often I get pulled into these old threads without noticing. Oh well.

sailingdog I would highly recommend you start a new thread based on this, since you'll get much better answers. Also, since you're new to Sailnet, you should read the POST in my signature to figure out how to get the most out of your time here.

CBinRI Not a big fan of ac on boats, especially small ones,, unless you plan on spending an awful lot of time at the dock.

As to C&C's, generally, the 29 is a good boat to start with. My general impression is the best old C&C's are the odd numbers (29, 33, 35). I just cant recall whether is is cored or not. I'd rather have a solid hull from the early 70s than a cored hull from the late 70s or early 80s.

There's a very good website called something like which would be a very good place to ask questions. It has original brochures and a lot of articles. Good luck.

JimsCAL Tacking on an unrelated issue to a 7 year old thread makes no sense. Start a new thread focused on your issue.

AirborneSF I have a 1978 C&C 26, they have always had a good rep, for being well built and easy to sail. At least mine seems to be. I don't know about racing, but as a day sailor/ weekender she is good to go. The only problem I have/had is keeping the cabin ports sealed, but I understand that can be routine maint. As I said I DO NOT have any issues with it's construction. My .02

I owned a C&C 30 built in 1980 for a long period of time. We sailed her in all conditions from Newport, RI out to the Vineyard, Nantucket, Block Island, etc. The build quality on my boat and the finish was very good. She was a quick sailer; not too tender. Cabin was not huge for a 30 footer. ie not even a quarter berth. Cockpit was adequate size especially considering my boat was retrofitted with a wheel. I would recommend this boat. Has good name recognition and good resale value. Good luck. Have also sailed the Tartan 30; excellent boat, shud be somewhat more expensive than the C&C. Not as performance oriented and larger in the cabin if memory serves.
