A truly magnificent Vessel!

The C&C 39 is one of the prettiest fiberglass boats ever built. Although the 39 was in production for only three years, 1972 to 1974, and less than 50 boats were produced, the 39 has a loyal following and has not only retained its value, it has also retained a lofty perch among the cult of connoisseurs of early '70s boats.

Designed by Cuthbertson and Cassian, the original manufacturer's brochure brilliantly proclaimed, "The C&C 39 was designed to win races by going fast!".

While most C&C models maintained a handsome look right up to the company's last bankruptcy, the boats from the early '70s somehow seemed sleeker and more elegant than many others of the day. This was the period when C&C established itself as a top-flight production builder.

The 39 has a graceful profile with a subtle sheerline and longish overhangs that disguise what is really a very fast full shape. The freeboard is modest and a low cabintrunk tapers to the deck, just forward of the mast, resulting in a large foredeck which, together with the long cockpit, gives the boat nice proportions. The plan view reveals the pinched stern that the IOR favored and, while a narrow stern has little to recommend from a performance or accommodations standpoint, it is pretty.

Below the water, the 39 has a moderate forefoot leading to an extremely swept-back fin keel, formerly called a whale-tail fin, and a semi-balanced spade rudder. Although the 39 was designed to be fast, she wasn't particularly light for her day with a displacement of 17,000 pounds, which was 10 percent more than the Cal 40 and only marginally less than the Tartan 41, also introduced in 1972. The 39 sported a tapered double-spreader, keel-stepped spar with inboard shrouds and a working sail area of 726 square feet.

The interior arrangement of the 39 was innovative for its day. The forepeak had either sail bins or a double berth, but the owner's cabin was designed to be aft and included the chart table and double quarter berth to port. Like other IOR boats of the time, the interior is loaded with berths, anywhere from seven to nine, depending upon the height, weight and friendliness of the crew. The standard interior does have a good-sized chart table with a quarter berth behind, a handy wet locker at the foot of the companionway, and a seagoing, U-shaped galley.

List of features:

Description: V- berth in forward stateroom with sail bin storage below. Head with shower to port. Hanging locker & cabinets to starboard. Main salon has settees with lee cloths and pilot berths both port & starboard. Sea going "U" shaped galley to port. Forward facing nav station. Breakfast nook & hanging locker to starboard. Double quarter berth to port. Single quarter berth to starboard. Good engine access under companionway ladder. Sleeps 9.
