Re: Knowledge on C&C 37+

I have sailed on a number of the 37 + . It can be tender yes, but is stiff and very responsive. I would liken it to our 35 mkIII, in tht it is a racer / cruiser. Good performance and comfortable in cruising mode.

As mentioned before C&C used end grain b
SA core in the correct way to stiffen and strengthen its boats. Properly taken care of these hull have the ADVANTAGE of being cored. Care must be shown with all thru hulls and intrusions into the core. This runs true topside as well as hull.

A good 37+ is a great all around boat.

Re: Knowledge on C&C 37+

If you've owned a 34+ then you're really just upsizing to a same-era boat so I'd expect your experiences with the 34+ would parallel what you'd expect to see with the 37 (barring misuse or abuse, of course)

Really a 40 footer, as I'm sure you know, just as the 34+ was really 36. Nice boats, sleek looking and a pretty nice layout. Deep draft would be a plus in our area.

Let us know how it goes!

Re: Knowledge on C&C 37+

Thanks for the feedback. I have had several other C&C's the last one being a 34+. No problems there with coring issues. Has anyone heard of actual cored hull issues on any of these boats?

Re: Knowledge on C&C 37+

The hull is cored. However, C&C really knew how to use this material and did it right. When you get your survey, the surveyor should be aware of the cored hull and examine accordingly. Make sure the surveyor doesn't have a bias against cored hulls- some of them automatically assume the worst, perhaps based on experiences with other manufacturers.
The 37+ is a really great boat. The water's too shallow in the west end of Lake Erie to sail one here, otherwise it would be at the top of my short list.

Re: Knowledge on C&C 37+

Pretty sure the hull was cored but they have almost all the brochures on the photo-album web-site, which is a great resource. My 36 was a bit tender, but that was not the rule with these boats. We really enjoyed her. I recall hearing that the odd number C&Cs were best (33,35 maybe 37?). Don't know if that's true as the 38s have many fans as well.

Congrats! Check out Join there and ask away. The deck is cored. Not sure about the hull.

Knowledge on C&C 37+

Hi, I am about to buy a 1993 C&C 37+. Does anyone here know much about these? How they perform and quality? Most important is the cored hull issue and whether this is a common problem in these boats? Not even sure if they all had cored components... Help appreciated!
