Overview

High Performance, Sensible Price

The C&C 30 one-design high performance race boat offers the thrill and technology of big-boat grand prix sailing in a size that’s fun, easy to sail and affordable. No other contemporary offshore capable race boat in this size range offers such proven grand prix features, sleek styling cues and ease of sailing at such a great value.

The C&C 30 combines a stiff, slippery-fast hull, a powerful sail plan, and ultra high-tech construction and materials, with an uber efficient deck layout inspired by the TP52 class. Plus, the boat is also a featherweight flyer that’s tough enough to stand up to the rigors of middle-distance offshore racing too. The fun is just beginning.

The design brief highly respected performance boat designer Mark Mills was given at the start of the project couldn’t have been simpler, and paradoxically—more daunting. Throw the rating rule books out the window and design a fast, stable, close-winded, easy-to-race one-design 30-footer that planes easily and will leave all other 30-foot performance keel boats in its wake. He accomplished this difficult task with superior science and computer modeling, cutting edge construction techniques and materials, and by simply ignoring the accommodations requirements of the increasingly muddled field of “performance cruisers” available these days.
