Cockpit, Deck and Hull
Lean, clean and efficient are terms often used to describe the deck of the C&C 121. Clutter is nearly absent, with lines running internally below deck from mast to cockpit, and hatches are flush with the deck. The molded, nonskid deck provides plenty of traction and a measure of safety.
The cockpit seats are comfortable, and there is good foot support when heeled. There is a large locker to starboard and additional storage beneath the helm seat. There is also a swim step astern, with a ladder, another sign that there is a soft side to this speedster.
The hull and deck are alternating layers of unidirectional E-glass and Kevlar laminates over foam cores.
All hardware is top-grade stainless steel. The stanchions support double lifelines, with boarding gates both port and starboard. A bow pulpit and stern rail help ensure nobody goes over the side. The destroyer-style steering wheel gives the boat the look of a racer. The traveler runs across the companionway opening for mid-boom sheeting.
