C&C 40 reviews and more…!

 

Originally built to race under the IOR, this boat remains competitive as a club racer.

The C&C 40 entered production as a 1978 model, and was phased out in 1983, replaced by the higher-performance C&C 41. The 40 has good all-around performance upwind and downwind, in both light and heavy air. Despite a wide maximum beam, the boat’s ends are fairly well balanced, and the rudder is deep enough to stay in the water in all but a flat-out broach.
