The C&C was conceived as a slightly more modern an slightly smaller version of the C&C 41.  Designed prior to the 34+ / 37".  She was an in-house design by Rob Ball and shows some IOR influence in her hull shape and elliptic foils. But make no mistake, this is a great sailing boat, as happy on the race course as chasing down your buddy on a Yacht Club cruise...

The interior is typical C&C in Oiled Teak, with a Teak and Holly sole (replaced in 2012) and functional yet spacious layout. 

SERENE has an updated layout with TWO private cabins.  This was an updated layout from the original quarter berth layout. Sh also has a large galley and forward head.  

This layout is open and works very well.
