    The C&C 30 probably did more than any other boat to establish the 30 foot size range in the minds of many Canadian sailors. Like the C&C 27, it also has to be considered a classic among the production fiberglass boats built in the country. In fact, its appearance and layout is very similar to the C&C 27, just more of everything, including some extra elbow room down below. This is a well built boat with good performance, and it did much to elevate C&C to the status of one of North America's premier sailboat manufacturers during the 1970s and 1980s. Most of the C&C 30s were built in the 1970's and they tend to be equipped with the 30 hp Atomic 4 gasoline inboard engines. While a diesel is now the preferred choice on sailboats in this size range, it should be noted that the Atomic 4 was one of the more reliable and common gasoline engines found in sailboats, and it is still easy to get parts and service for these motors.
