With sleeping accommodations for 7, and lots of storage, she’s a wonderful family cruiser that sails beautifully in a variety of conditions.

C&C sailboats are known for their bright and inviting interiors with oiled teak bulkheads and cabinetry, white overhead, light ash ceilings, and a teak and holly cabin sole. “Pleiades II” offers modern living in a performance package.The forward cabin has a double vee berth with comfortable, memory-foam cushions, shelves w/cubbies, storage drawers, cabinets, screened deck hatch, cabin fan, and port & starboard dome lights.  Just outside the louvered privacy door, is a port side head and large hanging locker to starboard.The head is equipped with a Jabsco manual head & holding tank (overboard discharge has been capped), pressure water, molded sink & counter top, large mirror, shower stall w/sink handheld shower fixture, teak shower grate, and independent PAR shower sump pump, cabinets, dome light and 2 deck hatches w/screens.

The salon’s port settee makes a comfortable single berth, and can be folded out to a double, with teak shelving and cupboards outboard.  Outboard of the starboard settee is a cozy pilot berth, which can serve as a single berth or large storage area.  There is ample storage behind and under all settee cushions.  The drop leaf, teak table seats six.  Good light and ventilation are provided by long side windows, a large, screened deck hatch, screened companionway and cabin vents.  The companionway has a sliding, Plexiglas top and teak drop boards.  The interior teak grab rails make movement below decks safe and secure in a seaway.

The U-shaped galley to starboard has storage galore, double stainless steel sinks near center line with hot and cold pressure water with a Raritan 6 gallon, 110v AC/engine heated hot water heater, a large, insulated ice box that has been converted to Adler Barber/Nova Kool 12 DC refrigeration, ice box pump out, tilt out trash container, teak-trimmed cabinets, cubbies and paper towel rack, Formica countertops w/multiple fiddles, a microwave, and a gimbaled, Hillerange three burner propane stove with oven.  A plastic cutting board fitted to the stovetop, creates extra workspace.

The forward facing Nav station is to port at the forward end of the quarter berth.  There is storage in the large chart desk and shelving and cabinets close at hand.

Behind the port side Nav station, is a large quarter berth, comfortable as a double berth, with or w/out the fold up leeboard.  The outboard side of the berth has a long shelf with fiddle rail and multiple storage cubbies.  A cabin fan, opening port w/screen, and overhead lights add to its spacious, light and airy feel.
