GLIM is a 1981 Tall Rig / Deep Keel version of the C&C 40-2 Series of racer / cruisers as produced by C&C Yachts of Canada from 1978 through the mid-1980's. She has proven herself successful in Club and Offshore Racing venues as well as a comfortable and accommodating cruising yacht. Designed by Rob Ball of the C&C Design Group and with almost 200 examples of the C&C 40-2 produced, GLIM has proven to be an exceptional performer over the years and graceful in all sailing conditions.


GLIM has been consistently well maintained and is in good condition. She had a full "bottom job" in 2020, the sail inventory is quite complete and current for any racing event or just cruising. The electronics inventory features a B&G Zeus 3 new in 2020, a newer B&G / SIMRAD radar, and new EPIRB. During the last two years she has benefited from new Edson steering, rebuilt backstay hydraulics, new running rigging, starting battery, Force 10 stove, Fairclough frame and cover and MORE!


The Owners of GLIM are motivated to sell and encourage prospects to compare her upgrades with any on the market. Her value is outstanding for racing, cruising or a combination. GLIM is out of the water in Norwalk, CT and available for viewing. This is truly a great "value proposition" for a boat that has won races, as well as the hearts of those lucky enough to sail her.

Lynn fell in love with sailing and the boating lifestyle when she moved to the East Coast to work as a young adult. She understands that boating can be a wonderful, but daunting, experience. Her belief is that owning a boat should be positive, and buying and selling should be both professional and personalized to the needs of her clients.

Lynn’s insights and expertise have been gained through her extensive cruising, certification coursework, sailing, navigation and safety instruction, and earning her USCG Masters License. She was a boat owner for more than 25 years having both power and sail and is active in her local yacht club. Professionally, Lynn learned about boats, boaters and the industry as Marketing Director for Brewer Yacht Yards which included 26 locations. With the 2017 acquisition of Brewer Yacht Yards by Safe Harbor Marinas, she was appointed Director of Member Experience for the 80+ national locations.

Lynn has two adult sons who were raised in, on, and around the water and are still messing about with boats for work and pleasure. They have provided additional perspectives on boating, life and boat choices.

As an American Sailing Association and US Sail & Power Squadron Instructor and private captain, Lynn loves empowering people in boating, especially women. She understands that boating can be fabulous if all onboard feel safe, comfortable, and confident. That starts with the selection of the right boat for your lifestyle.
