Re: C & C 24 pros and cons

Very few parts are C&C specific so no issues, if you need certain bits such as stanchion bases, these guys have odds and ends that come in handy, Holland Marine Products¨

I just purchased a 1975 C&C 24. This will be my first of many, have you had any problems finding any parts?

Re: C & C 24 pros and cons

Mine is a 1979 which had a different layout to the earlier ones. There is a galley area on the port side by the companionway, I have a 2 burner un-pressurised alcohol stove in there. There's a storage shelf behind, and a moulded storage cubby to the left under the cockpit. On the starboard side opposite is a sink, mine has electric pressurised water, and a decent sized icebox. The other designs of the 24' had the head mounted aft where my galley area is, so the stove/sink/icebox were crammed in opposite (if they even have a stove, sink, icebox etc). The head on mine is forward under the v-berth, good for space and a little more privacy, not ideal when the missus needs to use it during the night
Overall, for a 24' she has a ton of space below, not quite standing headroom. Certainly fine for a couple for a long weekend, maybe a week if you are well organised.

Sails great, accelerates quickly, turns on a dime, very responsive, great fun. Mine has a traveller and jib tracks, cunningham, vang and outhaul so it's pretty good for trimming. Will probably add a backstay adjuster this season.

Aha! Found some photos. These were before I bought her, she was just getting unpacked after winter. I am in the process of replacing the plaid too
Looking aft. There is storage under the stove too, as well as under the sink.

Looking forward, certainly one of the roomier 24' out there and gives you a taste of that "big boat feel"

Re: C & C 24 pros and cons

Does your 24 have any type of kitchen area?

The 24' is a good boat, I enjoy mine on a regular basis

I know these posts are over 10 years old.
But in the event that ChuckG still gets an update on this post.
Then, I have to ask if he like his purchase and tell us all about the boat.
I have always been interested in pocket cruisers and this one seems roomy.

C & C 24 pros and cons


Alas, I do not have any experience with that particular boat. In my quest to purchase an inexpensive boat, I stumbled across the website. Good luck with survey. Keep us informed as to your progress.

C & C 24 pros and cons

I just want to thank you for turning me on to the C&C 25 over at Block Island Maritime. I am currently having a survey done on the boat (as soon as the weather gets above freezing)and if everything checks out alright, I will be the boat''s next owner. Have you had any experience with this particular boat? It appears to be well maintained but unfortunately, took on some water during the past few snows (I think through the the companionway boards) and it currently has about 2 inches of solid ice sitting on the cabin floor. Once again, thank you for the tip on the boat.
