Sailboat Review for the C&C 36

The C&C 36 Sailboat is an exceptional ship with an impressive pedigree.  By far it is the best ship I have sailed. They are high-performance ships with attractive interiors that can sail well in a variety of conditions.

Sailboat Review for the C&C 36

The designers of C&C boats built ships that were squarely aimed at the high-end of the sailboat market. It is the attention to detail that sets the C&C sailboat apart from other production boats. When you look in the deep recesses of a C&C’s hull, places where people at boat shows don’t see, you find neatly finished seems, not gobs of resin.

The C&C 36 sailboat’s machinery and electrical systems are laid out so you can actually work on them, unlike other boats I come across. The ship’s mast has a well-rounded leading edge and is completely supported by Navtec rod rigging.

The interior consists of separately molded modules for the forecastle, head, saloon and galley/navigation/quarter berth. A separately molded headliner has plenty of removable inserts for access to wiring and deck mounted hardware.

The C&C 36 sailboat has a shallow rounded bottom with the low wetted area, a swept-back deep fin keel, a moderately swept-back rudder, and a reverse transom. Equipped with a 30 hp Yanmar diesel engine, this ship easy to sail and extremely maneuverable.
