As a product of the reputable Canadian yacht builder C&C Yachts, this vessel reflects their commitment to quality craftsmanship and innovative design.


The C&C Landfall 39 features a sleek and timeless design, showcasing a graceful sheer line and well-balanced proportions. With its center cockpit layout, it provides a secure and protected space for the helmsman, ideal for long-distance cruising and adverse weather conditions on Lake Erie. The cockpit is spacious, allowing for easy movement and comfortable seating for the crew. The deck layout is practical, with all lines and controls leading aft to the cockpit, making it easy for a small crew to handle the boat.

The hull is constructed of durable fiberglass, designed to withstand the rigors of offshore sailing while providing stability and performance under sail. The moderate fin keel and spade rudder design enhance maneuverability and responsiveness.

Sails and Rigging:

Equipped with a masthead sloop rig, the Landfall 39 features an easy-to-handle sail plan suitable for a range of wind conditions on Lake Erie. The mainsail is typically equipped with slab reefing, allowing for quick adjustments to match changing wind speeds. The headsail, most likely a genoa or a furling jib, can be furled or unfurled to adjust to varying wind strengths. This sail combination makes for a versatile and enjoyable sailing experience.


Below deck, the C&C Landfall 39 boasts a warm and inviting interior, showcasing C&C's attention to detail and craftsmanship. The center cockpit configuration allows for a generous aft cabin, typically the owner's stateroom, featuring a large berth, storage lockers, and an en-suite head with a shower. The aft cabin provides privacy and comfort for the owners during extended trips.

Moving forward, there is a spacious and well-lit saloon with comfortable seating around a central table. The table can typically be lowered to form an additional berth for guests. To starboard, you would find a well-equipped galley, complete with a stove, oven, sink, refrigerator, and ample storage for provisions. To port, there's usually a dedicated navigation station with all necessary instruments and electronics for safe passage-making.

Towards the bow, there's a guest cabin featuring a double berth and storage space. An additional head with a shower serves the guest cabin and main living areas. The overall interior layout offers comfort and functionality for extended stays on the water, making it suitable for cruising with family and friends.

Overall, the 1987 C&C Landfall 39 Center Cockpit sailboat is a desirable option for sailors seeking a well-built and capable cruising vessel with a proven track record on Lake Erie or any other water body. Its blend of performance, comfort, and craftsmanship makes it an enduring choice for those looking to embark on memorable sailing adventures.
