(Warren, RI- January 22, 2014) C&C Yachts announced today that the first production hull of the much anticipated Mills designed Redline 41 is under construction. The boat is being built for an experienced British ocean racer who plans to compete in the 2014 Newport Bermuda Race. The C&C 41 is the newest member of Mark Mills’ family of famous race winning 40 footers such as Blondie, Tokoloshe, Mariner’s Cove, Soozal, and Downtime. The list of race wins covers the world with Ambush, Foxy Lady, and Karasu dominating competition in South East Asia and Japan. The C&C 41 will be a very strong performer in ORR/ORCi and IRC. Mills Design is working closely with US Sailing to provide an ORR certificate for the boat.
The new 41 is designed to be a fast, durable performer capable of taking on premier offshore events like Newport-Bermuda, Chicago-Mac, Fastnet, and the Hobart race. The swept spreader, non-overlapping jib and choice of conventional spinnaker or retractable sprit provide ease of handling with top notch performance. None of this is a surprise coming from Mills Design. What may surprise sailors are the custom interior choices that the craftsmen at C&C Yachts / USWatercraft provide. This flat out race boat has a touch of elegance with it’s beautiful teak interiors, the same builders who create the famed Alerion Yachts, build the new C&C Redline 41.
The C&C 41 is the fusion of creative design, modern composite technology, and New England craftsmanship. It is unique among today’s offerings in the 35-40 foot performance market.
The Strictly Sail Chicago Boat Show is just a few short weeks away, running from January 23rd- 26th. C&C Yachts will be there displaying along with Karma Yacht Sales, our Great Lakes dealer. We will have all the information you need regarding the new C&C 30 and Redline 41. The build process is moving along nicely with our target date for the C&C 30 ready for March and our first Redline 41 to be ready for the Newport- Bermuda Race in June.
So should you happen to be in Chicago in 2 weeks, take a stroll down to Navy Pier and come see C&C Yachts and Karma Yacht Sales at the show; we will be in Booth 373.
C&C Yacht’s parent company USWatercraft had an excellent 2013 year. USW went through many changes last year, and one that should be noted in particular was the purchase of the C&C Yachts name. The “new” C&C Yachts has only been around since September of 2013, and look how far we have already come: we have several Mills Design C&C 30s sold, and the first two to be ready for a March 2014 launch, we are also about to begin production of our first Redline 41 that is due to be ready for this year’s Newport to Bermuda Race. In short, there is a lot going on, and much more to come. Please check back and continue to watch our progress. In the meantime, take a moment to read the USWatercraft end of year newsletter to find out about all of the activity that 2013 had in store for us.
