    The Corvette 31 was designed in 1965 and most were built in the late 1960s. This is one of the boats that helped establish C&C as a household name in the Canadian boating industry. These boats have a graceful traditional look about them, and they continue to enjoy a loyal following. The Corvette has a retractable keel incorporated into its full keel. With the swing keel all the way up, the Corvette only draws 3'3" (1m), making it an excellent boat for shallow water areas. It has a very livable interior, but it is a little small when compared to later designs. Because of when they were built, Corvettes were equipped with the Atomic 4 gasoline engine, although some have since been repowered with diesels. It is interesting to note that this boat was named after the Canadian navy's Corvette which became famous for providing convoy escort in the North Atlantic during World War II.
