The C&C 34+ is probably one of the youngest designs featured on this web site. It was introduced at the beginning of the 1990s, and it has much in common with the designs which were being built this decade. It's also one of the last models built under the C&C name in Canada. Although introduced as the C&C 34+, it has an overall length of over 35 feet, and many people would consider this boat to be a 36 footer. As a result, it was later marketed as the C&C 34/36. There also a racing version known as the C&C 34R.
The C&C 34+ has a brash look which suggests that it was meant to go very fast. For its size, it is a relatively light boat, and it's hard to miss the aggressive looking elliptical-shaped keel. In fact, C&C literature on this boat implies that it was designed as an out-and-out racer, which seems to be confirmed by the fact that it was available as a stripped-down racer (the so-called "R" version of this boat). The 34+ version is a racing/cruising model, but most people would still consider it to be heavily slanted towards racing. The interior of this version comes with athwartship aft cabin, an aft head, a contoured dinette/settee, and a naviagtion station. There is also a "XL" version of this boat which consists of the racing model with a few amenities thrown in below to make the interior a little more livable.
