US Watercraft teams with designer on C&C Yachts models

US Watercraft LLC is teaming with award-winning yacht designer Mark Mills to create its new C&C Yachts models.

Building on the success of Mills Design Ltd. in designing IRC racing boats, US Watercraft plans to begin production of two new C&C Yachts racer/cruiser models this fall. First off the board will be the C&C Redline 41.

"This boat will combine our experience building one-design and one-off raceboats and the quality craftsmanship and finish we put into our Alerion line of sailboats," US Watercraft president Randy Borges said in a statement.

The new C&C Yachts line is being designed for performance and family-friendly cruising. This model also seeks to be a fit for serious racing, inshore and offshore.

“I'm excited to be involved with the new C&C line at US Watercraft with the great team they have assembled,” Millis said in a statement. “It's a challenge to help take such a prominent brand forward with a new generation of boats, one we are looking forward to.”
