The C&C Northeast 39 is a well constructed yacht boasting high performance and excellent stability. She has all the cruising amenities for extended stays aboard and her tri-cabin layout accommodates families and race crews in comfort.
"Mirage" is a handsome example of the sought after C&C 39' Northeast. She is well equipped for buoy and offshore racing but has been used by her current owners for local day-sailing and light cruising. She is yard maintained and very well cared for, some of her notable highlights are newly Awlgripped topsides, new electronics, and crystal clean interior.
The NE 39 design
These vessels were designed by Rob Ball as an advance on the C&C 41. The criteria were for a faster boat on all points of sail with greater stability and superior construction. The intended use was for serious offshore racing or very fast cruising. The vessels were semi-custom builds, constructed to the rigorous standards of the famous Bruckmann yard. The boats are 'Stick-built' rather than 'Pan-built' as are regular C&C production vessels. This means they are significantly stronger and more durable for use under more extreme conditions. Their SA/D ratio is in tune with the most recent generation of performance sailboats, in the range of 22 - 24. The Ballast/Displacement ratio is an incredibly high 46%. This means she is stiff enough to carry all that propulsive power without being overwhelmed. An enormous balanced spade rudder and a 50 inch wheel keep her easily helmed when seas build or an aggressive skipper hangs excessive cloth. An 8 foot custom-faired keel keeps her sailing at high speed well into the 35 degree range. Her hull-form allows for a reduced wetted surface in light-air conditions and she can easily squeeze 6.5 to 7 knots of boat-speed from 10 knots of wind. Despite the high performance prospectus, these vessels are elegantly fit out below. All teak interiors gleam with oiled bulkhead surfaces and high-gloss varnished trim. Handholds are always close-by, making moving about in a seaway secure and safe. Berths are large and comfortable, with collapsible lee-boards built into the centre of the bigger beds. The layout is equally efficient for racing or long term cruising. The Bruckmann carpenters showed off their estimable skills in her joinery. The Northeast 39 is something of a 'cult' boat on the Northeastern seaboard where almost all of them live. They are usually snapped off the market within days or weeks of listing. These vessels represent a level of performance, beauty and quality of construction that is unmatched in their price range.
