41' C&C 41 '86 "Whirlwind"

The C&C 41 was one of the most challenging designs faced by the C&C design team at the time: "Design a vessel that would live up to C&C's world class reputation, a design that would win races & provide comfortable cruising for a large crew" and the verdict was an overwhelming success!

WHIRLWIND is a delightful reminder of what a performance cruiser can be and she has been masterfully cared for by the current owner who is looking to move up to a larger yacht.

Examples of WHIRLWIND's exceptional care include: all new wiring, LED lighting, new plumbing, all new windows, etc.

Plus, she is a delight to sail on all points of sail. At this price is a must see!
