The CCS is the largest off-shore yachting organisation in Switzerland and boasts more than 6,500 members. The club is funded by membership, allowing members to cruise on boats for a very reasonable cost. The largest part of the club is devoted to sailing – with five sailing yachts currently in operation – but the club is committed to developing its motorboat division as well. The CCS also provides skipper-training, and these skippers are responsible for the vessels while at sea.
The Swiss club organises extensive touring schedules for each of its vessels, mapping out detailed plans for the whole season’s cruising every year. Members then book cruises of one or two weeks aboard. The 2010 schedule for the Trader 42 “Rolling Swiss II” was fully booked months in advance! She is currently voyaging extensively throughout Europe on her 2010 tour – to London, Amsterdam, Bremerhaven and beyond.
The CCS has chosen a three-cabin Trader 42 Signature as the club’s flagship motor yacht for the 2010 season.
After doing comprehensive research for a 40-45ft motor boat, the Swiss club concluded that a Trader was the only choice. The 42’s Category A ocean-going capabilities, cutting-edge engineering and design, and spacious accommodation make her the ultimate long-range aft-cabin cruiser in this size category.
