C&C 30 MK I
The 1973 MK 1 needs no introduction. Often considered Canada's most successful design, its interior layout finds a balance between racing and cruising, able to sleep a family of five and yet very stiff in heavy air, so it's safe off-shore.A beautiful and well-maintained classic boat, Siren Song has comfortably explored most of eastern Canada, she's handled very strong breeze between Louisbourg and Newfoundland without any issues and been a trusted member of the family for 15 years. The Westerbeke diesel engine (15hp Four60) was rebuilt in 2016 and serviced regularly. Rigging is minimal, uncomplicated. The Mark 1 was built exceptionally strong, without a balsa core. Included is an excellent steel cradle (refit 2018), a new dodger (2022), furler, the sails are all in good shape; the hull received a new barrier coat in 2021 and it's bottom-painted with micronCSC. Also included are the instruments, a new compass, two anchors, two 14V marine batteries, an inflatable dinghy, barbecue, safety equipment and so on. The boat is ready to go sailing.I am both reluctant and motivated to sell this great boat........ Canadian Yachting.ca : “With over 800 built, the C&C 30 Mk1 is, arguably, one of Canada's most successful racer/cruisers. Production began in 1973 and ceased in 1985 -- a 12-year period that represents the longest production run of any single design version in the history of C&C Yachts. The 30 didn't need any changes, it held its appeal. This makes it `The Classic'. The 30 is generally described as an all round, user-friendly boat, forgiving, comfortable and easy to handle, with a reputation as one of the stiffest C&C ever built. Given these qualities, the 30 is the consummate cruiser."
