LOA: 23' DRAFT: 18"/~4' DISP: 1750(dry)/3050(wet)
This is the easiest to trailer, rig (10 min.), and launch of any of the water ballast boats I looked at (this is directly proportional to how much it will be used). This is a boat for someone who will be putting in and taking out every outing.
The "C" is for cruising model, large cabin, pop top, galley, enclosed head. It is very large inside, given the above "tradeoffs". Roller furling jib AND Boom Roller furling/reefing main.
The only weakness that I have seen to date (1yr of sailing) is the water ballast makes for a tender boat (over a deep weighted keel). However, this is an issue with all water ballast boats. Bottom line: If you want to bring it home and put it in your garage every time out, it's either water ballast or centerboard, and water ballast does offer advantages over the centerboard for stability.
Overall satisfaction is very high. Although, I am not a racer, nor an offshore cruiser.
This boat is great for up to 3 people (comfortably) for a week or more in coastal and protected waters.
