Doesn't include the cost of shipping to the US either. Just as expensive as his C&C 30.

Do the sails have to be paneled? Looks like North so would make sense to keep costs down. Limiting instruments and learning from driving costs up that killed the C&C 30 would be good. Cost of the boat is the cheap part of sailing so keeping the running of the boat and Pro's down to a reasonable number is the important part. Hopefully they can be sailed with less than 8 people too. 

Looks fun to me.

Will these do some near shore overnight races or are they mostly inshore OD?

Most of the current class activity is inshore. but they are happy coastal racing.  Some do the Mykonos race in SA which is 65 miles up the coast from Cape Town.

It rates 1.13 in IRC for those interested. The C31 in the UK has nearly cleaned up in most of the races it enters. The team racing it is very good but even so it’s very fast. The more powerful hull shape and larger keel fin seem to work well in the Solent chop

Looks like there are potentially 2 more boats on the way to the UK!
