Many builders have tried to perfect the racer/cruiser design. The idea is to have a boat that is comfortable enough to cruise, but still fun and competitive around the buoys. C&C has come as close as anyone to balancing this formula.
The first C&C 33’s were designed by the original C&C design group and made in the C&C custom shop in 1974 as custom, three-quarter tonners. The ‘semi custom’ C&C 3/4 TON was the first design by Rob Ball for C&C yachts. The hull and sailplan are the same as that of the slightly later production version of the C&C 33-1. But after producing just three boats, C&C yielded to market demands and began building the C&C 33 in the factory. One hundred and sixty five C&C 33s (MK I) were built in production.
The C&C 33’s instant popularity isn’t that surprising to those who have sailed it. The design is a dynamo on the water and a strong example of why C&C gained a reputation for high performance – a reputation that lives on today.
