    The C&C 40 dates back to the early 80s. It 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. C&C built over a hundred of these boats. Most have 7 foot deep fin keel, but a few were built with a retractable keel. The C&C 40 could be just what the doctor ordered if you are in need of fast boat that can double as a liveaboard. (Note that C&C introduced a different boat in the mid-1980s that is known as the C&C 41.)
