The larger C&C 27 and 29 foot boats have wheel steering, furling genoas, inboard engines, galley, head and of course sleeping accomodations for overnight river cruises!

The current ‘big boat’ fleet consists of a C&C 27 MKIII at NSC and a C&C 29 at BYC.


The Big Boat program can only accommodate a maximum of 8 memberships at each club – NSC & BYC. The boats can be reserved online similar to the other boats with the additional benefit that they can be booked for overnight usage on weekdays and weekends.
