They absolutely did make a 39 in the mid-70s. You can find its original brochure at the cncphotoalbum website.
I race on a 30, Rock'nRoll on Lake Ontario and it is an awesome boat.

bibendum This is hilarious... If you want to learn about C&C's, you MUST subscribe to the email list on the photo album. C&C Yachts - C&C Photo Album & Resource Center

To see comments like "C&C never made a 39" ought to tell you that you're looking for information in the wrong place. (There are 2 39's - the C&C 39 and the Landfall 39. The former is one of the prettiest and sweetest sailing boats you'll find. The latter is a comfortable cruiser that will appeal to some, but not others)

StorytellerCNC C&C built about 50 39's between 1972 and 1974. Check out the C&C website for the original sales brochure etc.
There is at least 1 for sale on right now.

Faster here's another link:

There are/were at least 2 C&C 39s of this vintage in the Vancouver area - "Outrider" and "Indigo". These are powerful, enduring designs from C&C's heydays.

I own a C&C 39 and it's based here in the British Virgin Islands.
There's a few photos of her on at last years Antigua Race Week. Look up Storyteller.
She's from 1973, I think I have a stern shot of her somewhere.
We bought her here cheaply and are slowly upgrading her, hence no real racing sails for Antigua. If we'd flown a spinnaker we may have had at least 1 win, but a 6th in class was pleasing as she's still very 70's, especially the hardware!

jgurley I can't imagine anyone thinking the Landfall "pretty". They weren't made until the 80's anyway.

I had already seen the Perry article, but it has no pictures. The CNC Photo
Album has no stern shots. I'm beginning to think C&C was the wrong guess to begin with.

sailingfool Biscuit Eater is referenced in this Perry article on the 39. The brochure for the original 39 (not a Landfall) is on

I don't think they made many 39's, I've never seen one to my knowledge and didn't remember one had existed. It looks like the same design as the 30 Mark I and 35 Mark II, both of which have excellent reputations.

Bristol324DD On Yachtworld, there are several C&C 39s (the Landfall seems to be of the right vintage)'s one that show the stern:
