c&c 39

We are considering the purchase of a C&C 39 centre cockpit. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether this boat is capable of offshore sailing. We want to sail her for a few seasons on the great lakes then take her to the carribean. Informed opinions are appreciated. Pierre

Re: c&c 39

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Pierre.

IMHO, the C&C 39 is capable of everything you describe, which is not exactly offshore passagemaking. For longer voyages, the tankage might be a little slim. Otherwise, like most C&C's, they're fine boats.

See ➥ C&C 39
And ➥ C&C 39

Re: c&c 39

Oops - you probably meant the “Landfall” 39; C&C’s version of a “cruiser”.

Re: c&c 39

Thanks and yes I did mean the landfall. The tankage on this 1986 is as follows:
Fuel 1 - 32 gal and 1 - 40 gallon

Water - 106 gal

There are 2 - 32 gallon holding tanks.

She is currently having repairs to resolve crazing around the hatches and the deck is being redone. The asking price is 89,900. Any thoughts?

Re: c&c 39

$89k seems to be towards the high end, for these boats; which does not preclude this example from consideration. She may be worth that price, or something near.
I think the stated fuel tankage may be more than was originally provided, and would certainly be more than adequate for Caribbean cruising, as would the water.
