The C&C 40 is a series of Canadian sailboats, that were all designed by C&C Design and first built in 1968.[1][2]

The series were all built by C&C Yachts in Canada, but all models are now all out of production.[1][3]

Design[edit]

The C&C 40 series are all small recreational keelboats, built predominantly of fiberglass, with wood trim. They all have masthead sloop rigs and internally-mounted spade-type rudders.[1]

The C&C 40 Crusader and 40-1 were related designs, although there were many variations produced on the basic designs. The 40-2 and its variants are a completely different design.[4]

Operational history[edit]

In a review of the 40-2 Michael McGoldrick wrote, " The C&C 40 ... is one of the bigger boats made by C&C over the years, and it traces its origins back to the company's experience with a custom 40 foot racing boat. It is supposed to be a responsive boat that has a reputation for being quite fast in light airs. Down below is all the room you would expect from a 40 footer, and later boats featured an aft-cabin."[5]
