C&C Design Group C&C Yachts 1972-1984 299 sq. ft. portable 10 gal.

Approx. trailering wgt.: 6,350 lbs.

The C&C 25 came out in 1972 as a capable racer-cruiser with more than average space below for a 25-footer. Eventually a Mk II version was introduced in the early 1980s, with the same hull and general accommodations plan, but tweaked for more speed. (The Mk I design is shown in the sail-plan, the Mk II is shown in the accommodations details.) The newer version replaced the forward-sloping cabin with a longer trunk cabin featuring a bubble at the after end that furnishes a few inches more headroom without appearing top-heavy; a reshaped keel (less raked, deeper by 5 inches) designed for higher pointing; 190 pounds less ballast; and other minor changes. The net result of the tweaking for speed was an average PHRF rating of 222 for both Mk I and Mk II, in other words no change at all. Best features: It is interesting to compare the racing oriented C&C with the comps shown here, chosen because of similar displacement, ballast, and D/L and SA/D ratios. The C&C comes out on top in Space Index and headroom (although the Mark 25 ends up with a lower PHRF rating; so much for perception of speed). Worst features: The galley seems squeezed up too close to the companionway ladder. Claustrophobic cooks beware.

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
