About the C&C Landfall 38…
C&C was a prominent Canadian boat builder (located in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario) that built its reputation on racers/cruisers. C&C’s Landfall series was their first attempt to build a large production boat with an emphasis on cruising. The Landfall 38, designed by Rob Ball, was first introduced in 1979 and continued in production until 1985--about 250 boats were built over the seven-year production run. S/V Rainy Days (originally named Galatea by the original owner from New Jersey) is hull #230 and was built in the Middletown, Rhode Island plant. I am the second owner, having purchased the boat used in 1986. It was among the last ones produced, as both plants closed down shortly thereafter and the original boatbuilding company (named for George Cuthbertson and George Cassian) went out of business. Today, at least one C&C can still be found in almost every large marina on the Great Lakes and the Chesapeake Bay, while the Landfall series is a relatively rare find.
