Well, all your buddies might show up at the race, but they don't stand a chance. You might as well engrave your name on the trophy before the race even starts! Coming from the well respected C&C and Tartan pedigrees, the 115 is a racer at heart but was designed will plenty of comforts. Clean and clear on deck, comfortable fairly luxurious below. All the crew will be happy with the 115!
C&C Yachts was founded in 1969 by George Cuthbertson and George Cassian in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. But a fire in 1994 all but ended C&C's life in Ontario, and in 1998 the folks behind Tartan Yachts bought the name and several molds. From that moment on, C&C's fate has been intertwined with that of Tim Jackett, the head designer who virtually grew up with Tartan Yachts. Like other recent models, the C&C 115 is his brainchild.
With her epoxy resin, eglass, and CoreCell core post-cured hull laminate, vinylester resin infusion deck, and a carbon-fiber mast as standard equipment, the 115 maintains highoctane performance ratios yet an interior that features two separate cabins, luxurious main cabin, sit-down nav station, large galley, and head with stall shower.
Firstly designed to be fast, she's going to be the leading the pack. At night, she feels like a cruiser. She proudly boasts winning Sailing World's Overall Boat of the Year for 2006 as well as Best Racer/Cruiser.

The C&C 115's long waterline (33 feet) produces a very impressive 147 displacement/length ratio. Her epoxy hull laminate consists of an all uni-directional e-glass structural laminate locally reinforced with uni-directional carbon fiber and sandwiched on CoreCell linear urethane foam coring. The laminate is carefully impregnated in metered equipment, consolidated along with all reinforcements and the coring, and placed under vacuum to allow ambient temperature cure. After this,the laminate is post-cured in a computer-controlled oven to maximize the physical properties of the composite.
Building the laminate this way produces the lightest, strongest, and stiffest structure possible and the weight saved can be used for interior appointments and additional ballast further enhancing the 115's performance and livability. The bulbed 4,200-lb lead keel has an extremely low center of gravity producing a high righting moment allowing a powerful sailplan resulting in a sail area/displacement ratio of 23.1.
The 115 interior belies her raceboat capabilities. Using lightweight composite laminates, cabinetry is abundant and attractively finished in varnished cherry with laminated, curved trim. Bulkheads are attached to the interior components using Plexus methylmethacrylate adhesives providing additional stiffness to the hull structure without adding weight. Accommodations for six are provided in fore and aft double cabins and bunk-length main cabin settees. The forward facing nav station is designed to accommodate full navigational instrumentation. The galley is fit with a two burner gimbaled LPG stove/oven, large icebox, deep sink, and ample storage for provisions. A stall shower and large head are located aft and to port. By concentrating on weightsaving construction technologies the 115 delivers an interior befitting a comfy cruiser without giving up her dedication to top racecourse performance.
The infusion deck's laminate is structured from unidirectional e-glass, Baltek AL 600 coring, and a custom-blended vinylester resin. Using resin infusion with these materials results in a lighter, stiffer, and stronger deck than those produced with the antiquated, low-tech polyester resin laminating techniques favored by most other builders. C&C's distinctive deck design is continued on the 115. Wide side decks with molded-in non-skid provide safe and secure maneuvering in a seaway. The signature ?slash? style portlights and classic C&C styling makes the 115 a head-turner in any harbor. The cockpit puts comfort and function first. The helmsman is pampered with a wrap-around helmseat with the 60" wheelwithin fingertip reach for upwind sailing. The main trimmer is given a convenient position just forward of the helmsman and has the mechanical advantage necessary in the Harken gross/fine tune mainsheet system to tweak the best performance possible. The cockpit seats are over 6 feet long and have high seat backs for comfort. C&C's custom toerail and stanchion design maximizes on deck space and offers a necessary toehold when moving forward in challenging conditions. With the racer/cruiser in mind the deck for the 115 is designed for maximum performance while offering comfort for after the race or when cruising.
Mast / Rig
The mast on the 115 has been co-engineered by C&C Yachts and SP, the world leader in composite engineering and materials technology, to produce an optimal section for the boat. Built by Novis Composites utilizing pre-preg, carbon-fiber laminates, cured under pressure (100 psi) at 250 degrees F, the 115's mast is less than half the weight of a comparable aluminum mast yet is stiffer and stronger. The weight saved aloft adds to the 115's stability advantage and reduces pitching moment maximizing her performance. A carbon-fiber mast, once an expensive option or custom raceboat feature, is standard equipment on the C&C 115, further testament to C&C's dedication to advanced yacht construction.
The boat's fractional rig features a 110% One-Design genoa, sheeted to Harken adjustable housetop tracks set at 8.5 degrees for tight upwind sheeting angles. Offwind performance is optimized with a One-Design 15' 11" spinnaker pole allowing for an oversized symmetrical spinnaker. For daysailing or cruising, there are plenty of options for sailing with an asymmetrical spinnaker whether in a snuffer or not.
