$30 ,000.00 Price Reduction!!! "Creola" needs a new Captain!!!

A terrific buy at this price!! Lots of vessel at a great price!!! Cruise in comfort and style on this beautiful 37' (39' Length Overall) sailboat. This vessel has spent 90% of its life on the GREAT LAKES and has always been kept "on the hard" in Florida when not being used by the owner a couple of months per year. It's 5' 11" draft provides safe sailing in Florida's coastal waters. Podium finishes in Key West Race Week and bullets in the Florida Sun Coast Race Week speak of her racing capabilities.

Creola will need some delamination repair below the waterline on the Starboard Side. Please view the two short videos showing the delamination.

Check out these comfortable cruising features:

  • Removable, folding teak table
  • 6'2"+ Standing headroom
  • Cushions in Forward Cabin re-upolstered (2015)
  • Pressure water in the galley & with oversize Head & holding tank
  • Central hot air from Espar diesel fired heater ducted to all three cabins, thermostat regulated
  • S/S 3 burner propane stove with oven and external tank
  • 12 volt refrigeration
  • Powerful internal drive auto-pilot
  • Line control custom whisker pole (extends to 27')
  • Asymmetrical cruising spinnaker, storm tri-sail mainsail & storm tri-sail jib
  • Fully battened cruising main with 3 reef points

The result is a slim, fair underbody, with low wetted surface. In profile, the 37 looks as long and sleek as a lot of 40-footers. The secret, as it turns out, is that the boat gradually stretched out during the design process until its final overall length was almost 39ft. This is, of course, an excellent way to improve the looks of almost any yacht. The C&C 37+/40 looks sweet from every angle, with a nice sheerline, plenty of bow overhang and a sleek, unobtrusive cabin.

The bold window treatment effectively draws the eye down from the cabin top and makes the boat look remarkably low and rakish. The transom is nicely shaped. The construction of the C & C 37 + was years ahead of it's time. Utilizing aircraft grade pre-impregnated balsa core material and Kevlar fabric, the hull and deck were laid up using vinylester resin for maximum blister resistance and light weight. This creates a boat with light weight for top performance as well as superior strength.

Her varnished teak interior provides accommodations for the captain and crew! Recent Price Reduction!!"Creola" is a 1990 C&C 37+/40R Sloop rigged vessel. She is a performance wing keel cruiser as well as a strong competitive racing machine.

The 3-cylinder 35HP Yanmar engine moves this ship at 7+kts when the wind dies. Husky #32 2-speed primary Barient winches along with six other winches make sail control a "breeze."

"Creola" had her hull & deck Awlgriped in 2010 and the bottom is coated with VC17 racing bottom paint. Hard to believe but the owner dry sails "Creola" and she is in the water less than two months each year. She has a large sail inventory, including three mainsails, seven Jibs & genoas and four spinnakers.

"Creola" is being sold "AS IS, WHERE IS" The owner is ready for this great Cruiser/Racer vessel to find a new home.
