“C & C is in very good hands. Good on them. Good on us.” – Response to our C&C Yachts Rendezvous this weekend!

C&C Yachts celebrated the heritage and future of C&C Yachts this weekend in Newport, RI, at the 2014 C&C Yachts Rendezvous. Here’s an excerpt from the attendees: 

“C & C Yachts/ US Watercraft were wonderful.  Not only did they sponsor the Saturday evening’s festivities, they brought over the 30 and the 41 for boarding and sailing.   Lucky were the ones who copped a ride Saturday afternoon on the 30. Barry Carroll was a fun guest and speaker it was great to hear the passion he still feels for the marque and how they will continue to translate it into their future models.  C&C Yachts was wonderful working with us and getting the boats to the docks

It looks like C & C is in very good hands.  Good on them.  Good on us.”

Perry on Design: C&C Redline 41

Sailng Magazine - Perry CC Redline 41The 2014 May issue of Sailing Magazine highlights Mark Mills’ new Redline 41 design.  At C&C Yachts, we are always proud when original C&C fans provide accolade for our current designer selection.

Direct from Mark Mills to Bob Perry’s pen:

It’s impossible for me to review a Mark Mills design without a sense of pride.  Mark has done very well for himself producing a long string of race-winning designs in Europe. But my connection with Mark is that he was an intern in my office many years ago. I have no idea how or why he ended up in my office, but he was a fun lad to have around, and he really knows sailing.  With his current successes, I’m not surprised that Mark designed this newest C&C model, sporting the Redline name with its C&C history. I thought this is a good excuse to give Mark a jingle and have a good gam. We had a thoroughly enjoyable chat about boats and life.
