'a very comfortable seaworthy 40-footer'
The big sister of the 11.00 and the little sister of the 12.50, the 11.50 feels like a fully-fledged 40-footer. The 11.50 Center Cockpit is real C-Yacht: seaworthy, comfortable and built using the latest techniques. The Frans Maas designed hull in combination with a very modern fractional rig makes for a pleasant and comfortable passage.
The Center Cockpit is protected by a fixed windscreen that provides comfort and visibility under every circumstance. The self-stowing washboards and the adjustable back rests in the cockpit give optimum comfort in port or under sail. The C-Yacht 11.50 can be completely and easily controlled from the cockpit.
Luxury owner's cabin
The C-Yacht 11.50 is extremely well built with special attention focused on the interior of the boat. Extra attention is given even to the smallest detail. The refreshing hand crafted teak wood interior is fully geared to seaworthiness and comfort. The large French bed in the aft cabin gives this boat an extra luxury worthy of a 40-footer.
'The design of the 11.50 is based on the prize-winning design of the C-Yacht 12.50'
The C-Yacht 11.50 is a real thoroughbred. The design comes from the skilful pen of Frans Maas. The years of experience of the designer together with the almost seventy years of yacht building experience of the Zaadnoordijk Yachtbuilders yard come together for a perfect result. The design of the 11.50 is based on the prize-winning design of the C-Yacht 12.50.
Spacious and optimum cruising pleasure
The vinylester resin used in construction of the C-Yacht 11.50 hull means that, not only is osmosis prevented, it is also a lot stronger than old-fashioned polyester. The 11.50 is completely built using sandwich construction. This sandwich construction in combination with the fully laminated hull/deck joint makes for a really rigid boat. The inner linings and bulkheads also help to stiffen the boat and are also fully laminated. The hull and rigging are designed according to the latest ideas. The deep V-section forward provides not only extra interior space, but results in especially superb sea-keeping. The aft sections are smooth and this enables the high-ratio rudder to maintain perfect control under all circumstances.
Technology for the long voyage
The C-Yacht 11.50 is designed for long voyages, this is quite evident from the large tanks fitted as standard to the 11.50. The 39 HP Yanmar engine with standard folding propeller is situated in its own engine compartment in the centre of the boat. Here also are placed all the heavy tanks. The ballast ratio of 40% makes for stable and limitless sailing pleasure.
The deck is uncluttered with account taken for really safe walking areas. All halyards (Dynema) and control lines are handled from the cockpit as standard.
