BLUE OAK is an exceptional value for a pedigree cruiser/racer. She is turnkey ready to embark on extended cruising. A one-family yacht that was custom built for cruising and was recently passed from father to son, she has received outstanding care. The equipment list is impressive (including a near new set of sails) and the level of maintenance is excellent.
The 40 is arguably one of C&Cs best designs.. powerful upwind and fast off the wind, she is a wonderful sailing machine. The centerboard design is robust and reliable and permits shoal draft cruising while providing remarkable upwind ability.
BLUE OAK has been in the care of her original family since she was ordered from C&C in 1981. An excellent level of upgrades and on-going maintenance characterizes every aspect of this performance cruiser. Cruising amenities include a little used custom ordered Novurania dinghy (optional at and extra cost), outboard lift/davit, well-maintained Yanmar diesel, Profurl headstay, customized cabinetry, upgraded electronics, newer 120amp Balmar alternator, oversized autopilot, immaculate canvas, hydraulic backstay adjuster, newer inverter charger and refinished hull and deck in 2007 and a bottom that was epoxy barrier coated in 2019.
Her galley boasts a Force 10 stove with oven and water cooled 12V holding plate refrigeration/freezer with digital dual thermometers and large double stainless sinks. Detailed owner records indicate all maintenance and upgrades.
Customized to her owner's order when built, BLUE OAK (nee Vatican II) is one of the most complete cruisers Harris & Ellis Yachts has had the privilege to list.
