Sold it. It was purchased by a retiree as a live aboard/cruiser to warmer climates. He has decided it is too small and it's back up for sale.

I recently went to a Catalina 36MKII

Loved my C&C but we outgrew it.

Re: C&c 30 Mkii

Did you ever find one? What challenge were you finding in looking? It's my dream first boat

Rob,

Would you recommend the C&C 30 MKII as a starter boat? Or something cheaper? I've been in love with the design though for two years now and can't stop coming back to it but I'm being told by other more experienced sailors that 20K-ish for a first boat is too much.

The sailing characteristics are very different. The C&C 30mkI is one of the most stable boats that C&C produced. The mkII is at the other end of the spectrum. See the attached graph to compare different models.

That graph is fascinating. It tells me the MK2 is going to feel a lot looser on the water, but do you think it's results mean a higher level of ability is required to sail it? How does it factor into the overall performance capability compared to the MK1?

I have a 35 MKIII don't see it on the chart...just the Red Jacket

Not harder to sail. If more tender you would just reef earlier . C&C characteristics are that they are highly maneuverable, sail very close to than wind campared to many other brands. Well made with thought in details across the product lines. Nice interiors. Generally quick boats .

Many have balsa cores so they are stiffer boats but you must check to make sure core is in good condition as well as pentrants such as winches, thru hulls

Would be a great starter boat
