C&C Yachts of Ontario Canada, with a reputation for competitive racers and racer/cruisers, is not exactly the first name that pops into most folk's minds when thinking of a cruising sailboat, so the Landfall 38 may surprise some. The Landfall series was C&C's first attempt to build a large production boat with the emphasis on cruising, as opposed to the racer/cruisers on which C&C had built its reputation. The Landfall 38 was first introduced in 1979 and continued in production until 1985.

This Landfall 38 has an extensive cruising history proving herself very sea worthy.  This vessel has some upgrades and can be considered custom.  After 36 years, Capella needs a new family. She has many upgrades – full enclosure, new cushions, heavy chain ground tackle and anchors, electric windlass, bow sprit and radar arch, solar panels, autopilot, new hatches and ports, overhauled W-40 diesel, rebuilt rudder, mast step & lifelines, 2x10 lb fibreglass propane tanks, cockpit floor grate, macerator. Exhaustive inventory of spare parts, manuals, records.
