The C&C 110, originally called the 110 Express at introduction, is an American sailboat, that was designed by Tim Jackett and entered production in 1999.[1][2][3]

The boat was built by C&C Yachts in the United States, but it is now out of production.[1]

Design[edit]

The C&C 110 is a small recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fiberglass. It has a masthead sloop rig, an internally-mounted spade-type rudder and a fixed fin keel, it displaces 10,900 lb (4,944 kg) and carries 4,200 lb (1,905 kg) of lead ballast.[1][2]

The first examples built were made with vinylester resin, but in 2002, this was changed to a post cure epoxy to reduce weight, the rudder section was also altered to give better control in higher winds.[1]

The initial standard rig was made by Offshore Spars and was configured with triple spreaders and rod rigging, this was later changed a double spreader rig with wire rigging made by Seldén Mast AB of Sweden, but the Offshore Spars triple spreader rig remained optional. The standard rig was changed to a carbon fiber one in 2004.[1]

A 5 ft (1.52 m) bowsprit was also a factory option.[1]

The design had a choice of keels. When introduced in 1999 there was an option of a standard keel with a draft of 6.00 ft (1.83 m), a shoal draft keel with a draft of 4.83 ft (1.47 m) and a deep keel with a draft of 7.25 ft (2.21 m). In 2001 a newly designed "high performance keel" was introduced with a draft of 6.50 ft (1.98 m) and the deep draft keel was dropped as an option.[1]

The boat was fitted with an inboard engine, its fuel tank holds 26 U.S. gallons (98 L; 22 imp gal) and the fresh water tank has a capacity of 70 U.S. gallons (260 L; 58 imp gal).[1]

The boat has a PHRF racing average handicap of 81 with a high of 93 and low of 75, it has a hull speed of 7.52 kn (13.93 km/h).[2]
