    This is one beautiful sailboat inside and out! In developing this 37, C&C's chief designer, Rob Ball, combined a long waterline of almost 32ft with modest waterline beam and generous sailing waterline length. The result is a slim, fair underbody, with low wetted surface. The skeg is large and deep, with an elliptical profile and narrow chord length where it joins the hull. There is a partial skeg -ahead of the big rudder to help dampen the quarter wave, improve tracking, and to fair in a more substantial rudder shaft. In profile, the 37 looks as long and sleek as a lot of 40-footers. The secret, as it turns out, is that the boat gradually stretched out during the design process until its final overall length was almost 39ft. This is, of course, an excellent way to improve the looks of almost any yacht. The C&C 37+/40 looks sweet from every angle, with a nice sheerline, plenty of bow overhang and a sleek, unobtrusive cabin.

    The bold window treatment effectively draws the eye down from the cabin top and makes the boat look remarkably low and rakish. The transom is nicely shaped. The construction of the C & C 37 + was years ahead of it’s time. Utilizing aircraft grade pre-impregnated balsa core material and Kevlar fabric, the hull and deck were laid up using vinylester resin for maximum blister resistance and light weight. All of the interior liners were overlaid and bonded to the hull and deck and the hull to deck joint was bonded with adhesive and then mechanically fastened with stainless steel bolts.

    All of this creates a boat with light weight for top performance as well as superior strength. Her varnished teak interior is beautiful and accomodating for captain and crew!  Recent Price Reduction!!"Creola" is a 1990 C&C 37+/40R  Sloop rigged vessel. She is a preformance  wing keel cruiser and a strong racing machine.

The 5' 11" draft provides comfortable sailing in the Gulf of Mexico as well as Florida's coastal waters. Five podium finishes in the 2011 Key West Race Week and a bullet in the 2012 Florida Sun Coast Race Week speak well of her racing capabilities. She comfortably sleeps eight but can be raced with as few as four.

The 3-cylinder 35HP Yanmar engine moves this ship at 7+kts when the wind dies. Husky #32 2-speed primary Barient winches along with six other winches make sail control a "breeze."

"Creola" had her hull & deck Awlgriped in 2010 and the bottom is coated with VC17 racing bottom paint. Hard to believe but the owner dry sails "Creola" and she is in the water less than a month each year. She has a sail inventory of over 14 sails, including three mainsails, seven Jibs & genoas and four spinnakers.

The owner is ready for this great racing machine to find a new home.
