40' C&C 1981 Family Style


     "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

     Family Style is a well loved cruiser that will still stand out for the week-night series at your local yacht-club. This is not your standard C&C 40 either as right after she was completed at C&C she was brought to Mark Bruckmann's yard where she was customized for her original owner.
