CF Sailboats

Is anyone familiar with CF sailboats? Mfg.(Canadian?),build quality,etc.The ones I've seen on the net are older boats, but I've not been able to find any information on them.The 37 footer I was looking at was designed by Dennis Choate. Any information would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!

CF - or - CS ?

There was (is?) a Canadian boat builder calles "CS".
They built pretty decent stuff.

Hi Gord,

I might be mistaken, but I don't believe the CS,and CF mfg.'s are one in the same.I think the boat manufacturer of the CF boat might have been a yard called "Dencho Marine"in S.Cal., but I'm not sure about that either.I did find the boat listed under "CF 37" on "Carl's Sailing Calculator." The specs.on the boat match up almost identically with a Farr 11.6 (38 footer).After a previous discussion several of us had on hull construction here, I'm particularly interested in what the hull and deck of the boat are made of.On "Yachtworld," it just lists the hull material as fiberglass. But with only a displacement of ~12K, I suspect the hull, and maybe the deck are both composites.That's about all I know, or suspect about the boat at this point.She is an interesting boat to me though. If you get a chance, take a look at her on "Yachtworld" and let me know your thoughts. One potential negative, is her draft....6'6". Not exactly a "Bahamas" boat. As with all boats though, compromises usually have to be made.

CS Sailboats

I second Gord's opinion - there is a guy on my dock with a CS (Canadian Sailcraft, I think) in the 37-40 foot range - flag blue hull, gorgeous boat. I know he sails alot and offshore, races to Bermuda; and up to LI Sound in it. He wrote an article about sailing to LI Sound in Sail magazine as I recall, about 2 years back. If their archives are searchable, his name is Terry (Terrence) Smith. I've heard that CS's are better-than average quality, but we don't see too many down here (Chesapeake).

CS

We have a Canadian made CS36 in our club. They are popular with the owners. The CS30 is even more popular. The 36 in our club sails well. It is a bit too pinched in the stern for my liking but still a nice boat. There are reviews of the CS30 that rate it very well. BC Mike C

Re: CF Sailboats

CF stands for Choate Feo.
