C&C LANDFALL 38 Hull Number Database

The C&C LANDFALL 38 were first built in 1979 and last built in 1985. Several sources state that about 180 were built, but hull numbers range much higher suggesting that more like 250 were built.  The LANDFALL 38 were built at C&C's Rhode Island (USA) plant, and as such the hull identifiers start with "CCY" (except for one which was built at C&C's Niagra on the Lake plant which has a hull identifier starting with "ZCC" instead).

An interesting story provides some hints as to why in 1982 the last two hulls from C&C went from # ~160  straight to #229 and thus likely resolves the 180-250 confusion.  Rather than going back, the 1983 production started off with hull #230.  Further support comes from that fact that so far  hull numbers in the range from ~160-228 have not been reported.  For more details "see Golden Handshake".  [UPDATE] With the addition of hull #165 built in 1984 at the Rhode Island plant, it turns out the confusion continues.
