The prestigious Dutch brand C-Yacht has launched a new 36-footer, but does the centre cockpit format work on smaller yachts? Chris Beeson finds out

Product Overview

Overall rating:



C-Yacht 10.50


Price as reviewed:


I’m not sure the centre cockpit idea works below 40ft LOA – the compromises in headroom are too severe and a decent-sized saloon means the forward cabin is more like a padded cell. However, for the shorter sailing couple, she’s a capable cruiser, superbly built, easy to handle, enjoyable at the helm, seems to perform very respectably and is a cinch to maintain. She won’t win many beauty contests but if you prefer sailing rather than looking at boats, where’s the problem?
