General Description

The Corvette is an early success from the C&C design/build team. Approximately 170 were built at the C&C Belleville Marine Yard from 1967 - 1971.  

Today the Corvette appears as a classic cruiser but it was a very successful racing boat under the CCA (Cruising Club of America) Rule. Its first race was the 1968 Lipton Cup in Florida, in the SORC series, in which it won its class,In the Miami - Nassau Race of that series it was 2nd in class and 2nd overall in a fleet of over 100 boats. In the windy Governor's Cup Race off Nassau, it was first in class again.

The Corvette design is type-formed by CCA and is similar to the 35' Invader and 36' Frigate from C&C in the same period. All three boats had great success in racing, including on Lake Ontario.

The Corvette and Frigate feature keel/centreboard design, an option which C&C carried on throughout their era. It afforded a tremendous rating benefit as well as the more commonly recognized attribute subsequently of access to shallow water with good upwind performance with the board down.

For sale now by a very happy and satisfied owner, who has actually owned the boat twice, having bought her initially in 1985 as the second owner, sold her in 2012 and re-purchased her 6 years ago. She has been coddled with winter indoor storage and has been updated and upgraded along the way.

The engine is accessible through a custom multi-panel companionway structure allowing full height and full width access. The engine can easily be removed from the boat.  

The engine compartment houses the batteries on the stbd side, fore & aft and there is a 12V light which provides a lot of illumination in the compartment.


Below decks you've got space. Space to move in and space for stowing. The warmth of teak is a beautiful touch in a well-planned layout. Quoin's interior is customized with additional teak and additional cabinetry and stowage. The teak cabin sole is custom.

There's full headroom all the way forward and easy privacy for the main cabin, head and forward cabin. Quoin has recent salon cushions by Quinte Canvas. There is also a custom teak drop-leaf dining table which drops down from main bulkhead able to seat 4.  

For sleeping, you have two full length settee berths in the main cabin and 6' 6" v-berth forward. The starboard settee is lengthened for sleeping by removing the forward armrest, revealing a footwell under the hanging locker, The port settee is similarly lengthened by means of a footwell behind the armrest aft under the galley. Quoin has custom hull-side teak battens in the forward cabin and salon.

The galley was designed by a sailor. It's spacious and well organized, with plenty of formica counter. There's a stainless steel sink with foot pump, a huge icebox with refrigeration and lots of stowage space. Quoin has additional custom galley cabinetry and has a propane system with propane stove. 

The centreboard cable is concealed in a stainless tube on the boat's centreline in the galley which serves very well as a grabrail for security. The cable is on a drum under the companionway bridgedeck where it enters the cockpit.

Recent interior rewiring and lighting. A light in the salon above the door to the head and hanging locker has switches to turn on/off from 12V or shore power supply.

Enclosed head with toilet to port and hanging locker to starboard. Quoin's toilet and holding tank recently replaced.

The cockpit is 8' long and has port, starboard and aft cockpit lockers as well as a lazarette, affording loads of stowage space. Quoin has a propane tank locker and stove and bilge fume sniffer.
