"At nearly 200 launched, the Rob Ball-designed C&C 40 was one of Cuthbertson and Cassian’s most successful models. With a beautiful spring to her sheer, rakish stem, reverse transom and rounded cabin house that gently tapers into the foredeck, the C&C 40 looks fast just sitting on her mooring. But her wolﬁsh exterior hides a sheep. The varnished teak interior is comfortable for a boat of this size and pretty standard for those times." ~ Andrew Burton for Cruising World
Fiesta is a well maintained classic C&C 40 centerboard board yacht. One owner and used primarily as a family yacht. Cruised and raced extensively in the Chesapeake Bay and coast of Maine. Owner added many upgrades including new electric panel , GPS, Chart Plotter, Auto Pilot and Stereo. She is well equipped for cruising with large drop leaf table seating six, new stove with oven, new hot water heater, and many other cruising amenities.
The 40 is built with a balsa-cored hull and deck. The result is a hull that is extremely stiff for its weight. C&C uses a basic inward-turning flange for the hull-to-deck joint, with a through-bolted aluminum toe rail providing the mechanical fastening.
