We are selling our C&C 24 after years of enjoyment by just a few owners (we are the 3rd). This is a true and tested design in the classic 1980’s style first built in 1975 and updated to this 2nd generation model. She is solidly laid up, built for speed (she has inboard genoa sheeting capability) with a 4’ draft, notchback, faired fin keel and full length transom hung rudder.
Zig Zag 5’s hull is a beautiful navy blue in nice condition and has bright white topsides.
Sails and Standing Rigging
She is a masthead sloop
All shrouds have been inspected and are in great shape
The roller furling system, head stay and genoa were new in 2019
135% genoa is crisp and in “like new” condition
Mainsail is in good, serviceable condition and mated with the big genoa has always provided a respectable turn of speed. Complimenting the sail inventory is an original spinnaker, which is included at no charge.
Halyards run to cabin top winches
Additional temp halyard for spinnaker and light air sails is attached to the genoa halyard turnbuckle
Genoa and mainsail sheets are clean and slightly worn
Winches are working smoothly and properly, two winch handles are provided

A Realty Check
Be prepared to see a boat the is 40 years old … the porthole glazing in the main cabin is the worst spot, but wear and tare, chips and scratches show like sunspots on an old sailor’s face. But make no mistake that this is a quiet greyhound waiting for your hand on the tiller and wind in the sail
