C&C Yachts adds Great Lakes dealer

C&C Yachts added Chicago-based Karma Yacht Sales as its western Great Lakes dealer.

Karma will cover a region that includes Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri and Tennessee.

"C&C Yachts chose Karma to represent their boats due to their outstanding success and reputation as a dealer, together with their ability to develop and grow one-design classes,” Barry Carroll of C&C Yachts said in a statement.

"The C&C product line complements our existing product offerings,” Karma Yacht Sales co-owners Jack Buoscio and Lou Sandoval said.

C&C recently launched the C&C 30, a race-ready one-design designed by Mark Mills. Tooling began recently on the boat at the C&C shop in Warren, R.I., with early hulls expected for delivery in the spring.

“There has been a need for an agile boat with the flexibility to perform in course racing, yet possessing the power and stability for local distances races, such as the Race to Mackinac,” Sandoval said. "We are glad to be on board.”

There are plans for model introduction meetings in January and at the Strictly Sail Chicago show, which runs Jan. 23-26 at Navy Pier. The first boats will launch in March.
