Re: What do you think about this C&C

David,

You know how I feel about C&C. You cant go wrong buying anything made by them on the pre 1998 years. If it fits your characteristics of what you want this certainly looks in good shape overall, but of course a survey will tell better. Most have Yanmars. The price seems reasonable especially if you can get in the 50s,

Dave

Thanks Rob. I live in Madison and I did see the boat. I was impressed. What I saw looked good. The rig was put up so I could not see that.

Looks great for LA though.

Only when dealing with core, but they do sail well. I really like the looks of the interior on this a lot, those bunks in the walk through look ideal for grandchildren! The exterior leaves no doubt that it is a center cockpit. If it looks good I say go for it. As chef said do check the hull, is it out of the water now? If it is you might want to take a moisture meter to the hull before paying for a full survey.

Re: What do you think about this C&C

I am also a fan of the Landfall 43. being a C&C construction is fairly good throughout. It is not a slow boat, but not built the the racer cruisers either. I know a few people who have cruised these in the Pacific as well as the Atlantic and I beleive this boat was also cruised in the Caribbean. Tankage for a 43 is a little light. All in all I think its a good buy.

Check all thru hulls and through deck fittings as it is a cored boat. Also check chainplates and find the last time the rod rigging was done?
