Using the latest technology in boatbuilding allows the designer latitude to deliver raceboat performance while maintaining cruising comfort. The new 115 is the latest embodiment of C&C's dedication to this seemingly contradictory ideal and to leading the industry in all facets of boatbuilding technology.
With her BPA epoxy resin infused, eglass, and synthetic core hull laminate, BPA epoxy resin infusion deck, and a carbon-fiber mast and rudder as standard equipment, the 115 maintains high octane performance ratios yet an interior that features two separate cabins, luxurious main cabin, sit-down nav station, large galley, and head with stall shower. Others try to match what we're doing at C&C Yachts, but without the advanced building technology we've designed and employ, they simply do not have the tools required.
The C&C 115's long waterline (33 feet) produces a very impressive 147 displacement/length ratio. Her BPA epoxy hull laminate consists of an all uni-directional e-glass structural laminate locally reinforced with uni-directional carbon fiber and sandwiched on sythetic foam coring. The laminate is carefully placed in the mold dry, and vacuum bagged and the resin is then infused into the matrix. Building the laminate this way produces the lightest, strongest, and stiffest structure possible and the weight saved can be used for interior appointments and additional ballast further enhancing the 115's performance and livability. The bulbed 4,200-lb lead keel has an extremely low center of gravity producing a high righting moment allowing a powerful sailplan resulting in a sail area/displacement ratio of 23.1. READ MORE
