Throughout it's 45 year history, C&C Yachts have been known for their build quality, sailing performance and handsome styling, The C&C 121 is no exception with it's graceful sheer, low freeboard, and carefully sculpted deck.
Designed by Tim Jackett and built by Tartan Yachts at their Fairport, Ohio factory, the 121 was the largest C&C design to be built by Tartan.
The 2004 model enjoys several distinct advantages over earlier (1999 - 2003) build years. By 2004 the 121 was being built with a post-cured epoxy/e-glass/ foam cored hull with carbon fibre laminates in high load areas, carbon fibre mast and, in this case, a carbon fibre retractable sprit for flying assymetrical spinnakers.
Earlier model years were built in polyester/e-glass and had aluminum masts; a significant downgrade from the 2004 build specs and a valid reason to seek out and expect to pay more for a 2004 model.
The interior finish was also upgraded in 2004, going from a rather industrial grey gelcoat with grey formica counter tops to a much more inviting cream color gelcoat and tan Granitcote countertops. Several other detail changes set the 2004 model apart from earlier builds.
Custom mattresses, factory reverse-cycle air conditioning and generator, recent electronics and a nice club-race sail inventory and a beautiful deep red hull color make this example a real joy to sail whether racing with friends or cruising with friends and family.
This boat is the finest example of a 121 on the market; schedule an inspection now - this one won't last long.

This is a well designed two cabin layout. The entire interior feels very bright and open with cream colored gelcoat finishes in addition to the satin varnished cherry joinery, off-white ultraleather cushions, tan granitecote counters and a teak and holly cabin sole.
Comfort below is further enhanced by the factory-installed reverse-cycle heat and air conditioning and a 4.7 Kw Fischer Panda generator.
