Finally there is a racer/cruiser with speed to burn and two luxurious staterooms for great cruising. There's no secret to the C&C 121's speed. The masthead rig spreads an impressive 846 square feet of working sail, which works out to a zippy sail area-to-displacement ratio of 23.2. To turn sail area into speed, choose from an array of keel options the 8-foot Deep Fin, 6-foot, 6-inch Standard Fin, or 4-foot Shoal Draft Bulb. Harken winches, blocks, and deck hardware is sited in all the right places and when you're at the helm, you'll appreciate the responsiveness of the Lewmar rack-and-pinion steering and that the self-tailing primary winches are within easy reach.

Down below, don't be too surprised that the interior appointments of the C&C 121 strike you as a lot more luxurious than you'd expected. The varnished cherry joinerwork, teak-and-holly cabin sole, designer fabrics, 6-foot, 4-inch headroom, solid-surface countertops, and seven opening deck hatches are just a part of what makes the C&C 121 interior a success. On the mechanical side, we've devoted a lot of attention to reducing engine noise and vibration by installing a quiet, smooth-running Volvo Saildrive with a geared prop there's no stuffing box to leak, misaligned prop shaft to rattle, or sketchy performance in reverse.

The construction technology, design, and top-level hardware above and below deck are key to the 121's success. So too is passion. C&C 121 owners tell us that their boat continues to sizzle long after they've taken delivery. She goes fast on the water, looks great at the dock, and cruises in style and speed. With a repertoire like that, everybody grins.

Standard features:
Hull construction is a vacuum-bagged, wet-preg epoxy, unidirectional "E" glass, and CoreCell core laminate locally reinforced with carbon fiber. The hull is postcured to 145 degrees
The incredible adhesion properties of epoxy eliminates all chopped strand mat from the structural hull laminate schedule. Chopped strand mat is the cheapest, heaviest, and weakest component that dominates conventional polyester hull construction
Pound-for-pound a post-cured epoxy resin laminate is far stronger than any polyester resin laminate
The oven post-curing process maximizes the physical properties of the laminate and minimizes future post-cure cosmetic blemishes characteristically seen in conventional polyester laminates
Hull cosmetics are also enhanced by the extremely low shrinkage of epoxy resin vs. polyester resin (1% vs 7%) and the reduction in overall resin content thus eliminating or reducing post-cure hull distortions found in conventional polyester laminates
The vacuum-bagging process and strict resin control through use of resin impregnators produces a hull laminate with 65% glass reinforcement content. The industry norm for polyester resin hull laminates is 25% glass content, this produces a stronger yet lighter hull
CoreCell closed cell linear polymer foam coring is used for maximum impact resistance, stiffness, strength, and light weight. The cored hull also offers superior hull insulating properties, both thermal and acoustical
The laminate in the keel area is reinforced with multiple plies of high-tensile carbon-fiber unidirectional reinforcements
Premium grade gelcoat provides superior gloss, fade resistance, and resistance to surface crazing
Interior is completely painted out for enhanced cosmetics and to seal interior laminate surfaces
Hull is backed by industry-leading, non-prorated, transferable 15-year no blister, hull structure warranty

Deck is a balanced composite laminate utilizing vinylester resin, uni-directional "E"-glass reinforcement, and high strength/stiffness Baltek premium AL 600 balsa coring
Our custom resin infusion process creates the best resin to glass reinforcement ratio possible resulting in the stiffest, lightest, strongest deck in production boatbuilding
Deck is locally reinforced at high load areas with additional plies of bi-directional "E"-glass reinforcement
White, light gray, or white/sandstone and white/gray two-tone decks with patterned non-skid are available
Premium grade gelcoat provides superior gloss, resistance to fading, and resistance to crazing
Deck coring windows are located at all hardware installations to maintain the watertight integrity of the deck coring
Molded in aluminum backing plates on all highly loaded deck hardware
Hull to deck joint is secured with 1/4-20 stainless machine screws installed on 4" centers through the full-length 6061 T6 aluminum backing plate imbedded in the hull flange. This method exceeds the recommended installation requirements of the ABS scantling for offshore sailing yachts.
Hull to deck joint is sealed with 3M 5200 adhesive sealant
Composite light RTM match-molded deck locker hatches assure strict thickness controls allowing accurate gasket seal of cockpit openings. Conventional construction uses single-sided moldings with painted raw fiberglass underside.
